The month of April has been outstanding for redfish, speckled trout and flounder here in Pensacola. Ten trips in seven days is too much when I only want four trips per week!! No complaints (I guess:)) It’s always a nice start to the day with 40-50 quality speckled trout on Sebile Bongas and Gulp! Jerkshads. We’ve really found some large trout lately with several hitting the 5# mark and countless 3#plus fish in the mix. The redfish have been really predictable as well with most fish coming from schools of mullet on shallow flats and troughs. Gulp! Jerkshads in camo and Johnson 1/4oz. Gold Spoons are our favorite baits for the redfish that are cleaning up in the mullet turbulence. We’ve also seen some flounder on muddy bottoms and have stuck several fish this week. It seems the bigger redfish on the shallow flats near Pensacola Pass have become a bit more unpredictable with only a handful of bulls taken this week. Soon, we will concentrate 100% on the redfish and speckled trout on the shallow bay flats. Fishing is excellent! Thanks, E Holstman.
