Pensacola and Perdido Key Fishing Report: May 23, 2024

Welcome to our latest fishing report for the beautiful waters of Pensacola and Perdido Key, Florida. If you're planning a fishing trip or looking to book a charter, there's no better time than now to hit the water. Our recent outings have brought in some fantastic catches, and we’re excited to share the details with you. Here's what’s been biting lately.

Red Snappers are Chewing

The red snapper season is in full swing, and the bite has been phenomenal. These vibrant fish are known for their fight and flavor, making them a favorite among anglers. We've been finding them in abundance on our trips, with many clients landing some impressive catches. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a first-time fisherman, now is the perfect time to target these beauties. Remember, red snapper fishing is regulated to ensure sustainability, so always check current regulations before heading out.

King Mackerel Are Here

King mackerel, or "kings," have made their appearance in our waters. Known for their speed and strength, these fish are a thrilling catch. We've been spotting schools of king mackerel closer to shore, making them accessible even for half-day trips. Using live bait or trolling with lures has proven successful. If you're looking for an adrenaline-pumping experience, targeting king mackerel won't disappoint.

Big Vermilion Snapper Showing Up

In addition to the red snappers, we've seen a surge in large vermilion snapper, also known as "mingos" or "beeliners." These fish are smaller than their red cousins but are just as tasty and fun to catch. They typically congregate around reefs and structures, so we've been heading to our favorite spots with great success. A light tackle setup is ideal for these fish, making for an enjoyable and less strenuous fishing experience.

Anticipating Mahi-Mahi

We’re eagerly awaiting the arrival of mahi-mahi, also known as dolphinfish. These colorful, acrobatic fish are a favorite for both their fight and their culinary value. Mahi-mahi typically start showing up as the water temperature rises, and we expect to see them any day now. They often travel in schools, so once we locate them, the action can be non-stop. Keep an eye on our reports for updates on the mahi-mahi bite.
