Back from London and I really enjoyed the 2012 Olympics, Amberley Castle and visiting with my Euro-mates. London always impresses and the Olympics were beautifully orchestrated. I really have some catching up to do at Redfish University and thanks to all the regular and new clients that have waited so graciously. Every year during Shark Week on Discovery, anglers call from all over the country to go shark fishing. Apparently, not many anglers are reading the Redfish University website but I’ll do some easy afternoon shark fishing trips all week this week and next! It’s almost as easy as bottom fishing in Pensacola Pass with the other charter fishers. We’re still catching the regular limits of quality speckled trout and redfish every morning from 515-1015am. Topwater Sebiles and Gulp! both will outfish livebait everyday. For the shark fishing, I’ve been using strips of ladyfish on 100# mono and a circle hook. To make it interesting, our anglers will use the same 6-10# light tackle(Penn Conquer 2000-4000/Abu Garcia Veritas and Penn Legion rods) for these 2-5′ black tip sharks. Many of the sharks will jump and all are clipped at the boat. Occasionally, a small, easily handled specimen will enter the boat for photo and educational purposes. A little nerve-racking at times but great fun and a nice change for Redfish University clients.
