Grandfather and Grandson make Memories in Pensacola Bay 3/4/12
On Sunday, March 4th, I had the pleasure of guiding Gary and his grandson on an early morning trip in Pensacola bay. I was a little concerned at the start of the trip because the wind was gusting to almost 30 MPH and we were faced with 7 miles of open bay to cross before we reached our fishing destination. The crew was eager to catch some fish, so we made the decision to brave the nasty weather and started our journey across Pensacola bay. We finally reached our spot which was blocked by the strong north wind so the fishing conditions were very comfortable. It didn’t take long before the incoming tide started producing fish. Gary was the first to hook up and landed a monster bay snapper and his grandson followed closely behind him with a healthy, 32 inch redfish! The action stayed solid for the next couple of hours. We had to cut the trip short because Gary had a long drive back to Texas! He was down visiting his grandson who was stationed at NAS Pensacola. It was a pleasure getting the opportunity to help a grandfather and grandson make some great memories in Pensacola Bay!
