Default Pensicola Pass Questions

Hey all, I am new to the forum and not a local by any means although I love the area and actually think I could live there. I keep seeing posts about catching reds in the pass. Is a 19 foot shallow v aluminum boat a boat I could fish there with? I plan to fish in the Big Lagoon but would love to try the pass too. Do you anchor or drift or both ? Live or Soft plastics ? I'll be there 7-21 week and have two to three days to fish.

Thanks for any pointers given Chris

Yes the boat will do fine. Like anytime and anywhere be alert to the weather. Big Bull reds are in the pass now, drifting thru the west side of the pass or anchored up. Live bait, soft plastics, spoons, trolling with stretches and many others will work. Do a search here on the forum for more info. Good luck and welcome to Paradise!

The pass has been rough lately and they closed the pass over in Destin this week because the coast guard was pulling people out of the water like mad. At times the Pensacola Pass gets what is called confused waters. In other words the currents are running at all angles and are difficult to read. I certainly agree with Dave to watch the weather and if you decide to go into the pass look at the conditions carefully. No sense becoming a statistic. If the weather is good and currents cooperating, you will have a great time in a small boat in the pass. We see small boats all the time. Watch your wake around Big Lagoon.

Thanks , is the whole Lagoon no wake? I am launching in there from the park.

I hope to catch them in there and may try to shoot across the pass to the barrier Islands and grass flats on the other side. I have fish there before. I cant wait to get down there!
