  1. Piers and Bridges - Reports
    Four dozen shrimp..for dozen shrimp and ran out very quick. The bite was on hard but was using extremely large circle hooks trying to catch the big one. I did catch and manage a 30-inch red, but do you know if you're going to get caught it will be with that fish in the truck. What does a 3 pole...
  2. Kayaking Reports
    Launched just after sunset to do my first dock light trip for this year and see how the bite is now that it's warming up. Caught 2 reds: 29" and 30.5" and 2 specks 13" and 17.5". Lost a few more specks in that range as well. All fish caught on live shrimp under popping cork. Tried throwing dark...
  3. Kayaking Reports
    Launched with H-MANEOD around 0745 from White Point and headed south along the bridge. Hit a couple pilings halfway out and pulled up some sheepshead then pushed to the channel. At the channel I had the first hook up with a black drum on live shrimp. As I landed it my second rod with a live...

  5. Kayaking Reports
    Launched about 415pm off white point with my anchor and ready to battle the wind. Using light gear at first (quantum pti20 and 12lb test w/no leader) got broken off by some decent fish around pilings at the midbay. Finally finesse two tourney winner slots, a 26" and 26.5" up. Released one and...

    Went to ICW at Point Washington & caught the most fish the whole summer 2 weeks ago! Here's the video link. Enjoy!
  7. Kayaking Reports
    Taking advantage of some leave days and my wife and I went to Rocky Bayou for some paddling. Figured it'd be a good place with smaller beginner friendly fish and my goal was to try getting her first kayak fish. Had a blast in the couple hours we were out. SW winds 5-10, not too choppy. Bait...
  8. Inshore Reports
    The redfish are starting to heat up throughout the bay. I caught this one Sunday night off a dock light. The wind was about 20-25mph and it was extremely choppy. I stayed for about 30 minutes and caught this monster the first 5 minutes and a couple trout after. I hooked up with another big red...
  9. Fly Fishing
    I was wondering if anyone had any tips on some good places to fly fish around the Pensacola area? I have fished a bunch around the mouth the Escambia River and around the Pace Bridge, but not on fly yet. I usually fly fish a lot of lakes and ponds but wanted to try and go for some reds and...
  10. Inshore Fishing - General Q&A
    I just purchased a shimano stradic 3000. Anyone have any recommendations for a good rod to pair it with? I would greatly appreciate any advice. Thanks
  11. Inshore Reports
    Me and my buddy did a little wading by the CGS in Destin from 2 to 6:30 and got a few. Weak outgoing tide. Bunch of Bluefish, Skippies, a Spanish (pic), a slot red (pic) and a rat. Great day and a beautiful sunset. The blues had our lines tight all day. :D
