Pensacola Fishing Charters at Redfish University. With some bad weather early in the week, we’ve experienced the slowest week of the year here at Redfish University. We can’t complain with over 30 Redfish University guided and instructional trips for the year but playing catch up with our local instructional trips has proven to be difficult and frustrating for both professor and student. We’ll attempt to revisit postponed trips next week with some more comfortable weather on the way. We only performed three of six instructional trips this week and taking most of the weekend off before heading into next week’s guided trips ending with the Bass Pro Shops Spring Classic in Destin where things will spin wildly out of control with 15-20 Redfish University trips as a result of our seminars. Another fast-paced and tiring March is on the way!!
The redfish and speckled trout outings continue to be impressive with large numbers of quality speckled trout in some shallow locations. The redfish are also very predictable on edges and shallow bars as long as there’s an appropriate concentration of mullet and bait. Berkley Gulp! Jerkshads and Berkley Havoc continue to be the best choice for baits.
The bull redfish on the flats are there as always although we did encounter some dirty water conditions which made them a little difficult to see but we viewed plenty and hooked plenty. Berkley Gulp! 4″ Shrimp work nicely. We’ll hit it hard again Monday, Tuesday, Thursday of next week(Wednesday is available now if anyone wants it) and then off to Destin Friday morning for a Redfish University instructional focusing on speckled trout and redfish and then over to Bass Pro Shops for the seminars Friday night, Saturday and Sunday. Staying at the Hilton and available for Destin guide trips on Saturday and Sunday morning for our friends in Destin, Ft Walton and Panama City. See everyone soon!!
