Pensacola Backcountry fishing with Captain Brant Peacher

Capt. Brant Peacher
September 9, 2009
Pensacola - Saltwater Fishing Report

Usually by now the redfish bite is pretty strong in the upper bay systems in Pensacola. Lot's of rainfall and hot weather has pushed the bite back a month or so.

On this particular morning, I got the pleasure of guideing Bryson Bratcher, a very ambitious angler who is eager to learn the ins and outs of shallow water redfishing. I told Bryson before the trip that it might be hard to find fish with the lack of salinity in the upper bays. Bryson didn't care..."I want to learn strategy" he said. So off we go...into the backcountry.

I have spent very little time in the Blackwater and Escambia marsh this year but with over 200 hrs spent in past years in those places I had a pretty good idea where to look. Bryson and I looked around for 2 hours before getting into a nice shcool of about 50 fish. We pulled 6 off the school and 5 off another.

I thought it was a success seeing how most of my time this year has been spent in the ICW.

Since Bryson want's to become a tournament redfisherman like myslef, I spent most of the time going over tides, rigging, what to look for, tournament strategy, pre fishing strategy, and everything else I know that will help him in getting started.
