Not much to report the past few days besides lots of rain and wind.
With over 3.5” of rain in the past three days, it’s been tough to get out.
I took Sunday off to watch the Daytona 500 and hangout with the wife..

However, I did manage to get out a couple of times before the bad weather came in and the inshore bite was good quality. I’m happy to say that the sheepsheads are starting to make their appearance in the pass and in a few other places in the bay. Not only are the sheepshead showing up, the inshore red snapper bite in Pensacola Bay has been outstanding. Some big reds are still around in the bay, and this makes for some fun light tackle action.


With all the freshwater runoff from the rivers, the upper bay trout and reds are going to be pushed down south a bit; they will still be in the upper bay areas, just not as far north. As the water temp continues to rise, some of the trout and reds will start to make their way back to the sound. A lot of these fish will keep their residence in both Escambia and Blackwater Bay but a lot will still head to the lower bay areas for the summer months.

It’s only a few more weeks away and Spring Break will be here and the annual sheepshead bite will be in full swing.
I’m hoping to break the 9lb –10 lb mark this year with a sheepshead. Last year we got one that was almost 9 lbs, and on light tackle spinning rods, it is a blast to be sure.


The weather is supposed to clear around Tuesday or Wednesday this upcoming week and then I’ll be back out. I will be going to the pass to do sheepshead drift, and also check a few of my rocky bottom areas in the bay to see how the bottom bite is in the bay.

I am getting booked up pretty solid in March, so if you’re heading down this way and are looking for the finest inshore light tackle fun family / professional fishing trip, then you’ve come to the right place.
I’ll post again at the end of the week with a report and some pics of the trips.

This video was taking a couple of years back, I'll be posting more videos over the next month and all summer enjoy...

Tight Lines..

Yeah I do enjoy my job, even know some days the weathers not the best and the fishing can be slow sometimes, but hey that's fishing. I'm a big kid at heart and I get just as much enjoyment watching them as I do catching the fish myself.
I'll be out all spring hooking up sheepies, reds,and what ever we can hook up, I'll be posting reports off and on in March and April.
Here's wish you and everyone a safe and drag screaming season!
