March 4, 5 and 6. Back in Pensacola with some shallow water redfish and speckled trout trips the last few days. Guided a father and son team from Daphne, AL. on Sunday and some local anglers Monday and Tuesday looking for some areas and techniques to catch redfish and trout here in Pensacola. Sunday’s conditions were extremely tough with high winds, stained water, a big temp drop and slow water but the last few days got much better although the wind was still howling. All three trips were extremely productive in the form of high numbers and instruction/techniques provided. We actually found the speckled trout to be most difficult but the trout we found were all in the 16-21″ range with several shorts. The redfish were in their normal areas and were very willing to take baits placed inside small schools of mullet. All fish caught on Berkley Gulp! Jerkshads and Johnson 1/4oz Gold Spoons. Lots of fish released and a few went home for dinner. Back at it tomorrow. Thanks, E Holstman
