Pensacola Fishing Charters at Redfish University-Late January

Pensacola Fishing Charters at Redfish University-Late January Lots of January and February inshore instructional trips here at Redfish University. We’re finding fantastic numbers of quality speckled trout and redfish in our northern bays with catches of 25-50 trout and 10-20 redfish a great possibility. Mostly local anglers looking for technique and location advice but we’re also booking a fair number of regular nearby clients looking for some excellent inshore Winter fishing in Pensacola, Florida. The bull redfish along the beaches and bars will also provide an amazing sight fishing opportunity for our anglers looking for catch and release sport.

Playing catch up at Redfish University

Pensacola Fishing Charters at Redfish University. With all the weather that one would expect in January in Northwest Florida, Redfish University has been in catch up mode for the last few weeks. Extreme cold, high winds and rain has made it very difficult to accommodate our local and traveling Redfish University instructional anglers. After postponing three trips last week, this week was filled with scheduling conflict and anglers on standby at a moment’s notice. We performed four Redfish University instructional trips this week with some very patient anglers and will do the same next week with some waiting anglers and already scheduled clients. We’ve even been pairing a few anglers together on instructional trips at my recommendation and their request which has really worked nicely and they can share the cost of these incredibly informative and successful trips. Finding lots of redfish and speckled trout in all sizes in very few locations right now. Thankfully, experience, knowledge and time on the water will take us directly to the fish. Thank you to all our regular monthly clients, regulars and new clients for your patience and grace during this period of scheduling struggle. We will get all of you in during the coming weeks!! See ya soon. Christmas also comes every January at Redfish University and it’s time to order all our new 2014 Pure Fishing(Penn, Abu Garcia, Berkley, Spiderwire, etc) product for the 2014 Redfish University season. With over 200 trips per year, these products are very well used and never fail! Looking forward to the new Penn Conquers, Conflicts, Battles, Penn Regiment rods, miles of Spiderwire Ultracast and, of course, the truck load of Berkley Gulp! Our clients will again be very happy with the best brands in the saltwater industry at Redfish University. Thank you again for choosing Redfish University, the Gulf Coast’s only qualified instructional fishing guide service, for all your fishing needs....

Pensacola Fishing Charters at Redfish University-Dec. 6-14, 2012

Redfish University Dec. 6-10, 2012–The instructional marvel of Redfish University continues to shine!! Most guide companies are somewhat steady in the Summer months but the off-season means a huge demand for Redfish University’s reputation with sometimes difficult conditions and the masses of local and traveling anglers searching for real guidance and instruction from an experienced, knowledgable and proven guide service. This has translated into extremely busy Fall/Winter seasons for our company since it’s creation. Lots of Pensacola Fishing Charter trips and great fishing at Redfish University. Five trips in the last fours and took Sunday off. Last Thursday and Friday’s instructional trips were outstanding with an enormous amount of speckled trout and redfish hitting the deck. Saturday’s double-header consisted of a pure fish-catching charter in the morning and another excellent Redfish University instructional trip in the afternoon. Our clients learn the best techniques in inshore fishing as well as catch big numbers of speckled trout and redfish. Yesterday’s instruction/catching charter was another awesome day of both species as well as some large redfish near the end of the trip. Berkley Gulp! Jerkshads, Johnson 1/4oz. Gold Spoons, Gulp! Sand Eels and Sebile Bongas were on the menu for all four days. An average Redfish University trip will yield 40-60 speckled trout from 14-23″, 10-20 redfish between 16-40″ with most in the 22-26″ range as well as some bonus flounder and many stripers in the next few months. Some catch and release but many hit the cooler. Stay tuned for this afternoon’s and tomorrow’s report in some of the most brutal conditions of the Winter thus far. We’re gonna produce some tremendous numbers of fish after a 30 degree temperature drop, 20 mph winds and rain. Thanks, E...

Pensacola Inshore Fishing Charters at Redfish University-Dec. 1-5, 2012

If you’re looking for a professional inshore fishing charter in Pensacola, Florida, Redfish University is the only place to be. The month of December has started much like all of 2012, extremely busy with five trips in the last five days. We are strictly concentrating on Redfish University instructional and backwaters trips where we are absolutely smashing the legal redfish, quality speckled trout and bull redfish. Great mornings with falling water and even a few afternoon trips as the water rises. Each condition requires completely different locations and some clever techniques. An average Redfish University trip will yield as many speckled trout as you wish, many trips exceed 50 speckled trout, plenty of legal redfish and even a few flounder in the box from time to time. Lately, we’ve been ending our Redfish U. trips a few miles south and sticking redfish in the 30-40″ range on Sebile Bongas and Gulp! Jerkshads. This is a great bonus for Redfish University clients who want to pull on some big redfish and a professor(and clients) who despise the elementary bull redfish trips, dealing with the 10-15 private/charter boats in the southern bays and inexperienced charter fishers wildly chasing schools of 500 redfish. Great anglers, one boat, a trolling motor and the correct approach makes it MUCH more productive. At Redfish University, our clients are treated to the highest quality saltwater fishing gear on the planet. All Maverick Boat Company(Maverick, Hewes, Pathfinder) boats are all current year models. Our Maverick/Hewes/Pathfinders are powered by the most reliable, innovative, powerful and performance driven outboards on earth, the Yamaha VMax SHO 250. Each year at Redfish University, a new boat comes and the old boat goes. In addition, Redfish University clients are using current year, and often the next year’s new products, from Pure Fishing including Penn Conquer Reels, Penn rods, Gulp!, Sebile, Abu Garcia, Spiderwire, Stren, Johnson and more. Rods and reels at Redfish University are never used more than six months. Redfish University clients stay warm and dry in an assortment of technical gear provided by Patagonia including Rain Shadow jackets, Traverse jackets, Guide Jackets, Marsupial Shells and other quality layers. Our clients...
