Pensacola - Saltwater Fishing Report

June's Best Bets - It's seeing Red. Big Red Snapper on the near shore reefs are beginning to be very common. While fishing these reefs over the last few weeks for Amberjack; I've been pulling up some real quality Red Snapper. Several topping the scales over twenty pounds.

Now, you're not going to just pull up on one of these public reefs and drop down a dropper rig on 80 pound tackle using rotten squid and expect to catch one of these trophy fish. I use the best super lines from Stren and top of the line Avet reels with super drags, top of the line rods to handle the abuse a twenty pound Snapper can deliver, use the smallest weights as possible, use Stern Coral Mist fluorocarbon leaders, extra strong Gamakatsu inline circle hooks and here is the most important part - good lively baits - Big baits! Some of the biggest Red Snapper that I have ever caught have been on big 10 inch Gulf LY's. With this years Red Snapper season at just 40 days, there's no time to fool around, make your plans early and capitalize on this great fishery that has been built here in this little piece of paradise.

Backwater in Blackwater is the place for June. Try the east side of Blackwater Bay, from I-10 south to Escribano Point. Check the tide tables and fish it on a full tide. Be sure and work all the stuff around the Yellow River Basin and Catfish Basin and you'll have a blast with the shallow water stuff here. You'll find that the Speckled Trout are still plentiful. Although you'll have to get a little earlier start to catch numbers of them, the later it gets in June the more nocturnal these Specks will get. Stay with the dog walking plugs as long as they are coming to the top to greet them. When they stop chasing top water plugs tie on sub-surface jerk bait and catch a few more.

For the Red Fish watch for the schools of mullet, these fish follow the schools of mullet around picking off the crabs and shrimp that they spook as they are combing the flats. Go with the tried and tested 1/2oz Gold Johnson Silver minnow, work it slowly over the grass and around the standing reeds.
