I ran out of Pensacola Pass last Monday afternoon. Nada. It was a little rough, but jumped through Caucus Shoals NC style up against the beach, and ran West almost to the start of the condos for nothing but dirty water. I then Headed SE 9 miles out to some wrecks, nada. (Couple of wrecks looked to have fish on them)Went a little further out nada. Ran along wrecks back toward the East and eventually backNorth to some Wrecksa few miles East of the pass. Never saw a bobo anywhere. Wind really ramped up and headed in. Worked the Pass for a while, nada.
Istop and look out over Pensacola Pass every morning and afternoon on my way to and fromwork. Saw some birds working the East side of thePass this afternoon, but I couldn't tell if they were working fish or comorants. I had not seen that in a few weeks.
MaybeI can run out of Pensacola Pass this weekend headingWest, you head East from Perdido Pass and we can cover it all quickly.
Fly wise, I usually go small to match the blood minnows. But honestly I had one eat a big @$$ tarpon toad and a big menhaden pattern as well this year. I usually just try to match a size bigger than what they are eating. Problem is, there is no bait around. I think the cold snap pushed the bait waaaaaaay offshore maybe.
