My favorite time of year is finally here! Cooler temperatures mean lot's of redfish. Whether you are fishing Pensacola pass, Destin pass, or Panama City pass, expect to see lot's of bull red action. If you are searching for slot fish then you can't go wrong with hitting any of the upper bay systems. Right now we are seeing schools of hundreds of fish in Panama City's west bay. These fish can be extremely skittish so light line and small baits are key. Also, the smaller the boat the better. You don't want to make your presence known since these fish are getting lot's of fishing pressure. The breakfast point area, muddy bayou bank, and the mouth of all the canals on the north bank are producing good fish. White jerk shad or a 1/8oz gold spoon is the bait of choice. I would suggest going down to 10lb test flourocarbon on some of these fish. They can be very stingy!!

Choctawhatchee bay has just recently became one of my favorite bay systems on the panhandle. Unlike the Panama City fish....the Choctawhatchee bay redfish eat! We were sightfishing singles and doubles all morning catching 1 fish after another. A small bucktail jig or a pearl white jerk shad was the prefered bait. We saw 90% of our fish on the north bank on sandy bottoms. Check out the first pic....it was from today's trip. There is nothing I love more than sightfishing in crystal clear water!

The upper bays in Pensacola are producing quality fish as well. I had a trip on Monday and we put 11 reds and several nice trout in the boat. Most of them were caught on a 1/4oz weedless gold spoon. Blackwater and Escambia bay will continue to gett better as the water temperature drops.
