Happy Memorial Day from Entertainer Fishing Charters!

Welcome everyone to the first of many updates to come.  As I’m sure plenty of you know, the last few weeks have been a roller coaster when it comes to the weather in the Pensacola and Perdido Key areas.  When Mother Nature allows, our trips have been a success for loading up the fish boxes.  Vermillion snapper continues to be the staple for us coming home, along with triggerfish and amberjack still being in season until the end of May.  Still seeing a good number of “bonus” catches like lane snapper, strawberry and scamp grouper.  Cut bait and squid are the baits of choice for fast paced catching, while the amberjacks tend to prefer big live baits and fast moving artificials.  If you’ve never gotten the chance to experience a party boat fishing trip, now is the time to book a trip with us and let’s make some memories that will last on the finest Perdido Key fishing charter boat!

Speaking of memories, let’s talk about Memorial Day weekend.  While this is a day of remembering our troops who gave the ultimate sacrifice, it is still a time to gather with friends and family to have some fun in the sun.  Most people think of grilling burgers, hotdogs, ribs, and chicken at these types of events, but let’s change that this year!  We still have until the end of the month for triggerfish and amberjack.  We will be running both 6 hour and 8 hour walk on trips during Memorial Day weekend to fit your schedule best.  6 hour trips are our most common for those who want to enjoy deep sea fishing at its finest, and come home with a great dinner.  Now if you’re a little more serious of a fisherman and want to get the most bang for your buck, the 8 hour trip is a great option to allow you much more fishing time to find your next trophy!  6 hour trips will run Thursday the 23rd, Saturday the 25th, and Monday the 27th.  Our 8 hour trips will be Sunday the 26th, and Friday the 31st.  All trips leave the dock at 7am sharp, please arrive 30 minutes ahead of departure to allow time to check in and and get everything on board in a timely manner.  Also remember our deckhands work for tips only. If they helped to make your day as fun as can be, please tip them for their hard work.

As we move more into the summer conditions, the weather will continue to warm up but should stabilize with much less wind compared to the spring months allowing more and more fishing opportunities.  Like mentioned, we have amberjack and triggerfish still in season until the end of May, so get your trip booked before they’re on the throwback list. After they close, we step into everyone’s favorite American Red Snapper the beginning of June.  Dates are booking up quickly so don’t wait too long to get your trip booked.  There are many options when it comes to Pensacola fishing charter boats, let us show you why the Entertainer stands out from the rest!  You can book any time online via our website or by calling our booking office and speaking with Tina directly at (850) 934-1613.
