Blackwater Bay Fishing Report 10.06.12

With fall upon us and the summer tourists gone home till next March, it’s brought me back to the fishing that’s true to my heart; inshore upper bay fishing.

Blackwater Bay Fishing Report 12.21.10

Fishing along the gulf coast has been hard to do the past two weeks because of colder than usual temperatures, wind, and rain. Before the bad weather, however, the fishing was outstanding for many different species. Just a few weeks ago, I was catching all the bull redfish we wanted in Pensacola Bay during the late afternoon trips.
