Guided Brian and Phil Enabnit for a two day trip. Started early with some topwater action for trout and redfish. Lots of fish on topwaters and then switched to Berkley Gulp! Jerkshads once the sun rose. The surprise catch was a 40# drum in the same area as the trout and redfish. Around 9am, we took off for Pensacola Pass where the fellas wanted to target some Spanish Mackerel, sharks and more. Fished the beach west of the Pass and immediately found lots of Spanish and sharks. Sightfished some 4-5′ blacktips with many hookups and jumps but no sharks actually landed but lots of fun nonetheless. Brian hooked an 80-100# tarpon on a Gulp Jerkshad which didn’t last long on 10# braid and a 20# fluoro leader. Great action along the beach, an area I haven’t fished in a month or so. All fish released except for some nice trout for dinner.
