Pensacola fishing seasons have a major impact on what you can fish for throughout the year here.
Additionally, the length of your trip, weather, and overall fishing conditions of the day ultimately will determine what is best to fish for. Whether or not you are fishing catch and release or looking for some food to eat matters as well.
Always let Captain Austin know what your goals are so he can determine what is best to do on your trip.
At the time of writing, Redfish can be caught and kept year round as long as they meet the slot requirement. Vermillion Snapper can also be harvested all year long. Sheepshead can be harvested throughout the year but are mostly available to catch in March and April. Black Drum can also be caught and harvested year round. Red Snapper can be caught year round but only harvested when in season which is typically in the summertime.
