Yes Kaleo, sheepshead are good to eat. They have small mouths so use a small hook. Hardly ever hear aloha or mahalo anymore unless I watch Hawaii 5-o. I enjoyed the Hawaiian language and culture when I lived there. Was nice to be a kama'aina for 5 years.

3 day nonresident license costs $17.50, a 7 day is $30.50 and a year is $47.50.

Also, like mentioned before the gulf piers should be really productive that time of year and you can go out there in just about any condition. In a 16ft skiff you can really be limited as to where you can go in Pensacola Bay if the conditions are less than ideal.

Mahalo (thanks)...I think using a guide service the first half day or so seems like a good idea...if I fish from the piers, would I get more than a bite per hour? K

You never know. I would talk to some folks or make another post in the pier fishing section, as the piers have a different set of etiquette, success, etc. here (that's not intended as good or bad). They can also give you some good advice on other things. Apologies if you have already posted there.

Call Tyler (Massey) at HotSpots or just call HotSpots. Great guy, great guide who will put you on lots of fish and show you a laid back, good time. Tyler guided me on a birthday surprise trip last year and we had a blast.

(He's the guy who posted before your last post in this thread.)

A guided trip for at least a day or half day will give you a good jump start to your vacation and fishing in the area.

You'll find that folks here are very friendly and the fishing is awesome. If you get a chance, look into some of the local history in Pcola, walk around Ft. Pickens (they stuck Geronimo there because he kept escaping at other forts), etc. too. Downtown Pcola has a lot of cool stuff going on now, too.

You can do a lot in the Bay, but in a 16 ft. skiff I would avoid the Pass or Gulf unless it is a good, calm day. Haven't re-read the whole thread, so apologies if the advice is contrary to what others have said since I posted, or overlapping. One thing you should do is start checking the tides everyday and maybe get a free tide app for your mobile device if you don't have one.

And, JimT is right on...sheepshead are delicious. They remind me of lobster or shrimp. Flesh tastes like a firmer monkfish in a way, but the fillets are smaller and the fish are harder to clean, but they are better tasting.

Peace, good luck, and tight lines.
