New to the area and need help
Hey guys I just moved up to the Pensacola area from st Petersburg Florida and I have one to notice that the fishing is very different here and am having a hard time finding much of anything. I have a small 18 ft deep v wellcraft and can run up to 15 miles offshore on a good day and I live in gulf breeze currently. If anyone can offer me some insight on we're I should be looking for fish inshore or offshore I would greatly appreciate it. Hoping to meet some good people on this forum and possible some great fishing buddys thanks guys

Welcome to this forum, hang around long enough, and you will be catching instead of searching.

Also they have Wed night meet ups at Gilligans for free oysters, you could meet some new people there. https://www.pensacolafishingforum.com...-low-=-122911/

Hey, I moved here a few years ago and have adapted well. Most of my saltwater experience is from fishing Tampa Bay and Tarpon Springs areas.
Inshore, I don't see that much of a difference... minus snook and mangroves. Grassflats fish the same and the same lures work. My favorite is a mirrodine with green back.
Offshore is more of a drastic difference... you can catch snapper in the bay and plenty of good fish inside 5 miles. you would need to make huge runs to get 100 ft deep water out of anywhere near Pinellas cty. Good news is, it's really easy to catch snapper! Just read up on these boards and you'll be productive in no time.
Also, go to local tackle shops and talk to the guys. I have always found the guys from HotSpots go out of their way to help me. I look at it this way... being from a different area is a good thing, you probably have some knowledge and techniques different than everybody else up here.
