Coming to Pensacola for the first time
on a family vacation a week from today. I would like to get out with my son and catch some fish. We are packing our small Zodiac RIB with us to we are not limited to shore or pier fishing. Any tips on what is biting right now and general areas to try? We are staying on Santa Rosa Island west of the Navarre bridge. Thanks in advance!

The grassy areas on the north side of that island, in the sound, will produce speckled trout and red fish.
Know the limits.

Sheepshead (black and white striped bluegill on steroids) will still be available around the bridge pilings. Fiddler crabs and shrimp will be the bait of choice.
Pompano, cobia, sharks, spanish and king mackerel should start showing up near shore in the gulf and on the pier. Gotcha plugs, bucktails and live baits.
As mentioned above, trout and redfish on the grass flats in the bay. Topwater lures, soft plastic minnow and shrimp look-a-likes and live bait will work.
MyFWC also has a decent app that may help ID what you catch and make sure it's legal to keep, search for the Fish-Hunt-FL application in your applicable app store.

And if you got the fever real bad, hit Bob Sykes bridge for some night fishing.
Welcome to coast.
Keep us posted while you are here.
Post some pictures.
Good luck, tight lines.
