Pensacola Fishing Charters at Redfish University. A very busy week here at Redfish University and just finished up three trips in two days. Yesterday morning’s fog made for an interesting trip with inexperienced boaters(some charter-fishers) racing at unsafe speeds through the thick fog without proper navigational lighting. Instead of jeopardizing our safety with the unqualified, we caught a few bull redfish and then went speckled trout fishing. We fould plenty of quality speckled trout in the 15-20″ range on Berkley Gulp! Jerkshads in camo. Today, we started early with the speckled trout and redfish in the bay system and found plenty of fish in various areas. A safe guess would be 40-50 speckled trout and a handful of redfish in shallow water. Pre front conditions and overcast skies made it simple. This afternoon, we returned to the open bays for the bull redfish and found plenty for our catch and release clients. As always, research your “professional” fishing guide’s qualifications, credentials and biography in any fishing destination. It can be the difference in a below average experience and an amazing experience. Anyone can get a captains license. Taking the weekend off! Thanks, E...Read More

Guided Mr. Frank Brueske and his son-in-law, Chris, this afternoon for some fishing in the northern reaches of the Pensacola Bay system. Frank spends most of his time in Escambia Bay so I really wanted to broaden his angling knowledge and locations. Started at 1:30pm with a soft easterly breeze and incoming water. Didn’t take long for Frank and Chris to stick some quality speckled trout on Gulp! baits and hardbaits. Travelled a bit further south and fished some very productive banks for redfish and found some cooperate fish including Frank’s 24″ fatty that crushed his Gulp! 5″ Jerkshad in camo. Fished several more areas and had success pretty much everywhere. Hopefully Frank and Chris have found some very productive areas for redfish and trout and will have much success in the future. Probably a cancelled trip tomorrow because of the weather but trips the rest of this week and next so I’ll have some more awesome Redfish University reports. April is almost filled but still have openings in May so book now to experience the wonder of Redfish University. E...Read More
Hey! I like fishing and I like beautiful women, so today was a great day. Got out for a few hours this morning to get some footage for Chicks Fish Too. A buddy of mine in South Florida runs the gig and my website designer and marketing genius, Randy Hamilton, handles his site and marketing as well. Found an area with lots of big redfish, beautiful water and got some really nice photos. I went into the process assuming I would be hooking fish and handing off but I was mistaken. I pointed, they recognized the fish, made very good casts and they hooked them solo. Very cool to see. Anyway, got 5-6 big fish and cruised back to Pensacola Beach for a day at the beach, a fabulous lunch and a few cocktails. Travelling a bit this week and sorting my new boat, so I’ll report back next week with many more reports. E Holstman Please click an image to...Read More
High winds nor rains can stop Redfish University anglers! Guided Lawrences again on Friday then Jeff and his son, Cody, and Saturday. Conditions weren’t exactly ideal with 30-35 mph winds and some rain but there’s nothing wrong with a little challenge. Both days were filled with lots of redfish and speckled trout including a nice 5.5 fat trout. Most of the redfish were in the 19-24″ range and were cooperating nicely before the front blew through. We switched to larger 1/4oz. Marsh Works jigheads because of the high winds but the Gulp! 5″ Jerkshads remained the bait of choice. Forgot the camera for Saturday so I’ll add more client photos later. Lots of trips coming up so hopely the fishing will continue to be outstanding at Redfish U. I think it will! E...Read More
