Fishing Report: Welcome to Mega-Bite Inshore Charters.
The past few days weíve had a few thunderstorms which have caused some major winds which have also caused a few small craft advisories keeping me and other anglers off the water. However, our annual sheepshead run is in full swing and the bite has been red hot despite the winds. Along with big sheepshead being caught in Pensacola Pass weíre hooking big redfish on the deep water ledges. Along the flats in Pensacola Bay, weíre seeing small schools of big reds, and they will go after a Berkley Gulp on a jig head thrown into the school. Spanish Mackerel have started to show up in the pass and off the beaches of Pensacola. They have also started to move in towards the bay and the bite is pretty good and will only get better as the season progresses.
Over at 3-mile Bridge, Iím hooking white trout on Gulps with a 1/4oz jig head, and Iím also hooking up some nice slot redfish from time to time.
On the eastern flats in the ICW, the redfish schools are starting to move in, and sight fishing has been the way Iíve been catching these fun fighters.
Along the beaches, the cobia run is in full swing and it looks like itís going to be a good season. I havenít been out scanning the water for them, yet, but when the weather cooperates, Iíll be out there in my tower looking to hook one up.
If youíre coming to Pensacola for Spring Break or vacation, look me up and weíll get you hooked up on the Mega-Bite.
