What a fantastic week of Pensacola fishing charters and Christmas came early at Redfish University. Redfish University will hit 200 trips for 2012 on Wednesday!! Quite appropriate for Thanksgiving. Fishing everyday, sometimes twice a day, and catching a wide variety of inshore species including redfish, speckled trout, flounder and the easy bull redfish. We received some of our awesome Pro Staff kits from Pure Fishing and Yamaha and we’re set for the Winter season. We’ve also entertained a great variety of anglers in the mornings for both instructional and pure catching Redfish University charter fishing trips in Pensacola as well as many afternoon trips for the big bull redfish that are ridiculously easy to find and catch. Lots of out-of-towners, locals, new residents and some celebrities including a PGA Golf Champion and a BASS Elite Series angler. Everyone knows Redfish U. is the place to be!!! Still finding loads of speckled trout, legal redfish and flounder in their Winter homes as well as some striper in the mix. Small baits such as Berkley Gulp! Jerkshads, Shrimp and Sand Eel are the baits of choice although the redfish will still chase down a Sebile Bonga on the surface. For the bull redfish, what can we say, if you want to catch some very large redfish there are plenty around and it’s easy, easy, easy. These are not instructional Redfish University trips and all you need is Redfish U’s Pathfinder 2300 HPS and we’ll on top of hundreds of 20# redfish for your pulling pleasure. Trips last week consisted of many catch and release and some anglers took that night’s dinner. Most of the trout and small redfish are release and of course, the flounder are hitting the cooler. Taking Sunday afternoon off and ready for trips everyday this week including many double-booked days. I work too much! Thanks, E Holstman
