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 will also enjoy extremely weather gear from Yamaha Pro Staff in the form of Gill Coastal Jackets and Bibs. Finally, because we do a lot of sight fishing around here and many clients will attend Redfish University without polarized sunglasses, a wide assortment Oakley polarized optics are available for clients to use like the Oakley Scalpel and Monster Dogs in VR28 lenses. Just some really nice added comforts and perks from the sponsors of Redfish University. Take care, E Holstman
