Light Tackle Inshore Fishing Pensacola Report
<p>Fall has arrived and to me that means light tackle redfish action. For the past few days the redfish bite has been very good; the big reds have started to invade the panhandle. If you like throwing artificials and hooking fish near or over 20 lbs with some even topping the scales near 30 lbs, then come to Pensacola in October or November. We have redfish here all year long on the flats and upper estuaries, but most are in the slot. From time to time you'll hook up a monster, but if you want that trophy redfish and have never hooked one, this is the time. Check out some of these pictures from the past few trips on my webiste.
Give me a ring, and I'll be happy to get you hooked up on the Mega-Bite.
So what else is going on in Pensacola? If you're looking for slot reds, you'll find them still moving up in the upper bay areas like Blackwater Bay and Escambia Bay. There are still plenty of slot reds hanging around the ICW if you know where to look. The Kings are still hanging around in the bay along with some big Spanish mackerel. Ladyfish and bluefish are running thick along the beaches, pass, and in the bay. These fish pull hard and are loads of fun on light tackle
I say this every year and I'll say it again, fall is by far my favorite time to fish.
I'll be out on the water the next few days bowing up on some big reds� I HOPE!
See you on the water.

Larry had fun hooking reds all day.
