I first off want to thank everyone who has taken the time to read this first blog post! I want to start this blog with a writing about my experience with a Perdido Key fishing charter. I contacted Bryant Fields the day before our trip to confirm our trip was a go. From there it was a dream come true! We met at the local marina early and ready to go! From there we left and caught some bait at a buoy at the local channel access to the Gulf Of Mexico. It took a few minutes and we had all the bait we could put in the live well.
From there we started our journey for our deep sea fishing adventure. It was glass calm on the way out. We hit our first spot and as soon as our baits hit the bottom we were bowed up with some nice Red Snapper! After catching a limit of Red Snapper we then went fishing for king mackerel and let me tell you these fish fight! We caught three of these fish on live bait on light tackle and it was a blast. One must have jumped 10 foot out of the water! We then moved on to catching some vermilion snapper. Although these fish are smaller, the light tackle and the fight these fish had were a blast! We caught quite a few of these guys and before you knew it our trip was over…. We headed back in where the Captain cleaned our catch and bagged them up for us. It was a great time and was really the staple of our vacation in Perdido Key. We then went back to The Point restaurant where they cooked our catch form our day of fishing. I can’t recommend All Caught Up Fishing Charters-https://www.allcaughtupfishingcharters.com/ enough! It really was a great trip and can’t wait to come back! I hope you enjoyed this reading as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Hi everyone and welcome back to another week full of helpful information. This week we have Pensacola Beach Fishing Charters own Captain Zack Strickland of Strickly Fishing Charters. We sat down with Captain Zack and discussed some of the things that are happening in his area right now! We asked about how the fishing has been and Zack responded with “The fishing is really starting to heat up here in Pensacola Beach. We are seeing a lot of redfish, sheepshead, black drum, and the big sharks are starting to move in.” When we asked him what makes the spring so good in Pensacola Beach, Captain Zack told us how this time of year the migrating fish that swim up the coast of Florida finally make their way up to the Panhandle. These fish include pompano, cobia, king mackerel, and spanish mackerel. Sight fishing cobia off Pensacola Beach is about as fun as it gets. “We use boats with large towers and troll up and down the coast” Zack said ” waiting for the chance to spot a cobia and then present a bait”. This can be tedious at time but definitely can pay off. .
Another fun fish to catch this time of year is the sheepshead. In the Spring time we catch these fish during their spawning cycle. Once they finishing spawning they then begin to feed again and we see their fish in large numbers. They also catch a lot of redfish and black drum fishing for sheepshead. All three of these inshore fish are a fun fight and believe me they are great on the table as well.
Spanish Mackerel are another fish to catch in the Spring in Pensacola Beach. We catch these fish cruising down the beach in massive schools. They use bucktail jigs and any kind of shiny plug will do the trick. When fishing for these be prepared for numerous hook ups instantly. Also make sure you use heavy monofilament or wire leader as these fish have sharp teeth.
Last thing I talked to Captain Zack about was what to expect for the next few weeks and he replied with “It is just going to get better and better”. The way the panhandle is located in the northwest corner of Florida the fishing only gets better through April and May. Be prepared for all the fish stated above and you are sure to have great success.
I wanted to start my blog with a recent fishing expedition I had while vacationing with my family in Pensacola Florida. We had a great time on our vacation there, the people, places and activities were simply put, awesome! When we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly staff at the local hotel. We then got our things put away and went to find somewhere to eat. After asking five or six people we decided on Peg Leg Pete’s. Guys let me explain, this place was nothing short of spectacular. The great staff, the atmosphere, and the food were far above par! We all got us a good bite to eat after deciding to get oysters and grouper and were excited for our fishing expedition the next day. After long hours of research we decided our best option was a Pensacola Fishing Charter outfit called Strickly Fishing Charters. We arrived at 630 in the morning and were greeted by Captain Zack Strickland with positive attitude and an eagerness to get us out there! We choose to do a deep sea fishing charter for 6 hours and we were really glad we chose this type of trip. We started off fishing for king mackerel and let me tell you these fish fight! We caught three of these fish on live bait on light tackle and it was a blast. One must have jumped 10 foot out of the water! We then moved on to some bottom fishing. We pulled up to the spot and after a quick glimpse on the fish finder Zack knew this wold be a good spot. We deployed a GPS anchoring trolling motor and he started baiting our hooks. We were using live cigar minnows and cut bait. After what seemed like just a second the bite was on! We caught a couple really nice red snapper in the ten to twelve pound range and the rest of our limit fairly quick. We then moved on to catching some vermilion snapper. Although these fish are smaller, the light tackle and the fight these fish had were a blast! We caught quite a few of these guys and before you knew it our trip was over…. We headed back in where the Captain cleaned our catch and bagged them up for us. It was a great time and was really the staple of our vacation in Pensacola. We then went back to Peg Leg Pete’s where they cooked our catch form our day of fishing. I can’t recommend Strickly Fishing Charters –https://www.stricklyfishingcharters.com/ enough! It really was a great trip and can’t wait to come back! I hope you enjoyed this reading as much as I enjoyed writing it.
The trout fishing in North America is some of the best you will ever find. From coast to coast it doesn’t get much better! Whether its fishing for lake trout, speckled trout, brown trout, or rainbows there are a ton of different techniques that we use to catch them. My favorite trout to catch is the salt water speckled trout. These fish are fished mostly like bass. We fish around march, docks, and creek mouths to catch them. The best lure presentation is a popping cork with a jig head underneath with either a burkley gulf shrimp or a live shrimp works as well. We also fish for speckled trout with top water lures. Most of these fish explode the top when they strike a lure! It is an aweosme site to see. Or catching redfish while speckled trout fishing is another great catch! We Catch a lot of redfish fishing these same areas but that we will save for another day. Lake trout grow very large and fight really well. We catch them trolling most the time or a lot of time we catch them ice fishing. These fish can grow upwards of one-hundred pounds with the world record being 102 pounds! What an incredible catch! Lastly there is the brown and rainbow trout. These fish live mainly in small creeks and are a blast on light tackle. We mainly catch them on worms and small rooster tail spinners. These fish are great table fare and really a great way to spend some family time! Thanks for reading and hope this will help with your catching!
