I understand there was a decent swarm of 'em swimming near the Pensacola Beach Pier that was captured on video and posted to Facebook. I believe the Facebook group that it was posted to is called "Pensacola Beach Gulf Pier."

Video was posted to FB yesterday morning (11/9/19) around 8am. I found the link:

Sorta yeah, sorta no; at the time I posted that, my neighbor had just come in from fishing all day and was talking about how they had gotten into a couple schools while outside Pensacola Pass. But then again, he went the next day and caught butkus. I don't think it's on fire yet, but it's like fishing always is... just a matter of being at the right place at the right time. I personally have come to suspect that fish are driven as much by length of the day as they are water temps, so I just wouldn't wait too long. I mean it'll be Thanksgiving in a couple of weeks.

Thanks, Sam.


May-be I should have him come down later in the week. Heard today that on Wed we will be having winds gusting to 30 outta the north. Not very conducive to running around in the bay looking! What's the worse that can happen if he comes down? We sit around and visit and drink beer. How bad can that be?

Good point. I think mid week will be pretty snotty but maybe late-week or early next it could be decent. Wife and I went out today to see if we could find a good bite and I have to admit it was disappointing. East/SE wind in our bays kinda sucks, it was choppy and the fish didn't seem to be too active from what we could see. I'll be curious to see what happens next weekend.

I hope your friend has a good time regardless... always hard to know what the fish will do!

Had a look at Escambia Bay about 9:30 this am. Wow! I don't think I've seen that many white caps ever where I live. With that long fetch from up in Pace to the north shore of Santa Rosa the waves are really up. I have a weather station at my house and I recorded a gust of 31. After the wind lays down the water is going to be pretty dirty for some time.

I went and looked at the bay too with binoculars and the waves were huge (10'+?) looking south from Sanders Beach.

I wonder where the 3 boats off the empty trailers at Navy Point ramp could have gone today??

The last couple years I’ve had a terrible time finding the bulls on top. I went this past Sunday and didn’t see any or many boats on looking. Maybe my timing stinks. Idk

Yours and mine both. Year before last we saw a couple schools one day by accident, but we weren't on the water looking that regularly, either. Last year I had my eyes out each time on the water, never really saw anything consistent but I can only go when I can go, and it's not nearly as often as I'd like due to work and family stuff.

I have seen a couple schools this year but they have been sporadic, and the last one that came up was immediately ruined by 3 boats converging on the diving birds and running all up into the school in their haste to get on it; then when they didn't get any hookups, and the fish almost immediately sounded, two of them gunned the throttle and waked the other boats in their haste to leave. Don't know why people are so dense sometimes.
