October Report | Pensacola, Navarre, and Perdido Key – Capt Brant
Appreciable weather was somewhat of a norm during October. This allowed for us to have a notable month here at Angler Up Charters. I should also mention that the fishing wasn’t half bad either. Most mornings were initiated by the sudden outburst of a Jack Crevalle demolishing a Sebile top water plug. There is no better start to a trip than observing a relentless Jack as he takes my client toward his breaking point. Following the epic battle that kick-started most mornings, came a smoker King Mackerel that we would routinely connect with in the bay. Furthermore, this would allow sufficient time for the sun to appear, which greatly improves the conditions to see fish. I became accustomed to spending the latter half of the trip searching for Redfish and other species that we could apprehend by means of sight casting. There is something about seeing a fish before you hook up that creates additional delight to the entire experience of catching. The day would typically end with a feeling of success and accomplishment. This was somewhat of a pristine feeling as the previous month proved to be a bit of a struggle in our bay. With 16 trips in the books for October, I plan to take the next 10 days off and celebrate my sister Caitlin’s wedding, through fellowship, with family and friends alike.
