Default Jon Boat getting to Pensacola Beach

Is it possible to get a 14ft jon boat out to the pensacola beach pier? Where would be the best place to launch? I heard sherman cove. Someone told me if I hug the shore around fort pickens I could make it but I am not sure I never been there but I heard it's real rough. I just want to fish far out from the pier and want to know if its possible to get out there. Any Suggestions?

That's a LOOOOONG ride in a 14' jonboat. Don't think I would try that one with out some one in a biggerboat following me, and you might lose your ride when you take a good wave.

I didn't think we are allowed to get that close to the pier? I can remember surfing close to it and the sheriff's dept. was up on the pier with a loud speaker and told us to meet him on the beach. $25 fine. I have a 15' Jon boat and I would'nt touch that, but if you do, good luck.

Seems like a lot of trouble to me just to fish next to the pier. If your gonna take that long a ride in a 14' jon boat you might as well head on out to the frieghter. Take a camera with you and post some pics of your trip.

in the younger and smarter days (seemed like smarter back then), i would take my 12' alum v-hull with a 9.9 honda to the 3 barges, regularly. riding through the pass was very interesting.

if you do it, i wouldnt be too close to the beach. in shallow water you will get swamped from the waves. since the pass is usually just rollers, you may be ok. biggest problem will be getting sideways and then get ready to take a drink. but im with the rest, why in the world would you want to fish the pier with all the great inshore fishing you have access to. if you're willing to launch at sherman/navy point/shoreline, then you will have a minimum about 12-18 mile ride, one way! oh, and bring extra fuel. and life jackets. and a waterproof handheld vhf. and a drybag for your cellphone/wallet. that should do it. oh wait, flares, vienna sausages, a gallon of paint and some asbestos siding.

Well I see a lot of fish activity out side the pier. I don't know any other places to go. Whats the freighter? I don't have a gps so I think it will be hard for me to find places...
