Live Bait Fishing Trips in the Florida Panhandle

Live bait is a great way to catch a variety of species of fish. Here at Showintail Inshore Charters we almost always carry live bait aboard our trips. Kids fishing trips and families who are more relaxed fishers enjoy the live bait fishing over artificial lures. Live Shrimp is the primary bait we use till summer arrives. During the hotter months we fish live fish baits like finger mullet and pinfish. Live bait fishing in the months of May and June are a great way to catch trophy Florida Gator Trout. Large Finger Mullet or Croakers and the preferred baits for catching the large Speckled Trout. Catch and Release only for the Gator Trout but we also catch plenty of slot size Speckled Trout that are perfect for the dinner table.

live bait fishing schooled up redfish can be some of the most exciting fishing there is! live shrimp on popping corks or free lined on a small hook are great ways to fish the hard hitting aggressive Redfish. Luckly for us we get to catch Redfish all year long. All 12 months there are Redfish to be found with the months April-May and October-November being the best months for targeting redfish. Live Bait fishing redfish during the best months usually result in multiple hook ups and some very large Bull Reds as well.

Once the sun gets up switching to Gold Spoons and a variety of soft plastic bait. On sunny days when the wind is calm, sight fishing for Redfish is very fun skill testing way to target these powerful animals.
