Fishing in late August can be very interesting; to say the least. There are more jellyfish than I’ve ever seen before. We are catching BIG Spanish mackerel that you’d swear they were King Mackerel. Lots of Red fish in the passes and Amber Jack on the near shore reefs. In the bays you’ll find loads of the garbage can slams - Red Fish on the docks, Spanish mackerel, Speckled Trout, Pompano, Blue Fish, Lady Fish and some Bull Red Fish along the Grass flats on the south side of the sound near Pensacola Pass. Flounder on just about any structure in Pensacola bay from the I-10 Bridge to Fort Pickens pier.
I’m really looking forward to the fall season that’s headed this way. We got word the Fisheries Management has slated for a fall Red Snapper season. It looks like 345,000 pounds more fish to be caught? My guess would be two three day weekends. I’ll keep ya posted. Lots of Bull Red Fish are already showing up I’ll bet the fall season is going to be awesome!
Thanks for reading my reports!
Have a blessed day
