Guided some anglers from Alaska today that scheduled a three day trip at Redfish University. Yesterday’s high winds forced us to squueze in two trips today and we’ll finish up tomorrow. Started in Pensacola with some bayou fishing for speckled trout and redfish. Found plenty of speckled trout after the temperature drop and some surprisingly large redfish. After a few hours of that we travelled north to find some really low water conditions but the fish were very concentrated which made things a bit easier. They definitely didn’t like the cold temperatures last night so we needed to make them bite. The fellas did a great job drawing bites and slowly down their baits. Caught plenty of trout and limited on redfish pretty quickly. Found a few flounder but only got one nice fish to the boat. We even had a few doubles on the redfish which made for some chaotic moments on the small flats skiff. Ended up with 30+ trout, 10-12 redfish and a few flounder. Some great tournament fish today with over 14#. The fellas kept some fish to eat at Aegean Breeze tonight and for tomorrow night. All other fish released. Back at it tomorrow. Thanks, E Holstman
