November 12th Pensacola Fishing Report.

I'm going to keep it short as I think the photos will tell the tale!

It's been a redfish extravaganza over the past two weeks. This has to be one of the best starts to the annual redfish run I've ever seen. So far on most trips anglers have been catching double digits. We've had some 20 and 30 fish days. Today's trip (11-12-2014) we boated 32 reds and only had two anglers on the boat. These reds are big averaging about 18 lbs Ė 22 lbs with some topping the scale over 25 lbs and every once in a while we boat one over 30 lbs. Over the past few trips we've had a couple fish over 41". These trips are pretty much all catch and release trips.

We are getting another major cold front in the middle of this week and that should really turn the reds on, as if the bite could get any better.

If you would like to experience this awesome fishery, give me a shout. I've got a few days left open in November, and December is getting pretty booked, but there are some spots still left open.

Thanks for stopping by, let's get you hooked up on a Trophy Redfish today.
