Pensacola inshore fishing charters at Redfish University continue to stay extremely busy into the Winter season. A great number Pensacola/Destin/Orange Beach visitors, new local instructional clients and Redfish U. monthly subscribers who can be called at a moment’s notice, keeps us fishing nearly everyday throughout the year. Three of our last four Redfish U trips have been instructional guided trips with new residents and local anglers looking for the best inshore fishing education the Florida’s Gulf Coast has to offer. We’ve experienced full moon conditions and less than optimal tides for the last four days at Redfish University but these conditions give us an excellent opportunity to show clients the proper techniques, baits and productive areas to draw bites and most importantly catch redfish, speckled trout and flounder in tough conditions. Temperature fluctuations, bad tides, irregular wind patterns and a full moon can be make things pretty challenging but with the proper knowledge, the absolute most can be made out of any situation. We’re continuing to produce large numbers of speckled trout in all sizes although we’ve done an outstanding job of keeping anglers in the zone and on the 17-22″ trout. The redfish have been pretty easy to find although finding a few between the lines can be difficult especially in poor conditions. The bull redfish on the flats are much more cooperation and we’ve been taking plenty in the 32-40″ range on Sebile Bongas. The flounder are around although consistency can only be found in a few locations with dark, muddy bottoms. Some trips are strictly catch/release and some are taking a few for dinner but the hopes are that all Redfish University have gained a wealth of inshore fishing knowledge in the Pensacola, Florida area and have found an incredible value in our unique and proven services at Redfish University. Saturday and Sunday mornings will conclude this week’s instructional fishing sessions and then another full week of instructional and bull redfish easy trips including a handful of Redfish University in Destin and Panama City’s West Bay in the coming days. Thanks again, E Holstman
