Default July Vacation Need Info Best Place To Stay And Fish???

Coming down mid July on vacation. Family wants to stay on beach and I want to be close to good fishing. I'll be bringing my 17 ft. tracker. I have fished Clearwater Fl. and done very well but I don't want to drive that far. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Pensacola Beach @ Portafino. Great dock on sound with great fishing on grass beds thick in that area. Short run up th bay for kings,spanish and flounder, snapper, grouper around obstructions.

as far as fishing....if you stay on the beach there are boat ramps within a few min. from wherever you stay...just keep up with the forum a few weeks before you come down to get an idea of whats hot right then

We thought about staying in Gulf Shores and fishing Little Lagoon but not sure how the good the fishing would be. I could trailer to other spots but it is nice to leave boat in the water.

do yourself the favor and drive another hour and half to come to pensacola! Gulf shores is a nice area for anyone who is land locked or wanting to gamble.. However, Pensacola in my opinion has alot more to offer with plenty of affordable rates on lodging. Pensacola is a safe beach community with quiet beach roads, lots to do for the kids, and everyone will be friendly!! Also our trained forum and tackle shops will put you on the fish! :clap

Tristian Towers are nice condo's on the sound side as far west as you can go. They have a dock for loading your vessel, but I am pretty sure you would have to moor it off the beach. which is safe and saves $$$! Its a gated condo with security and large swimming pool great for kids. Public gulf side beach is right across the road and private sound side beach is behind ya! You will be in good location to find any type of fishing you are looking for. I have friends that own some of these condos and they are mostly newly renovated and a good value to rent.

There was a post not to long ago that I can't find now(must have gotten deleted)....saying that Pensacola Beach at night wasn't the safest to be after dark....especially for the young ladies!!! something about want-to-be gang hoodlums....I have stayed there but never really went out at night...just fished the pier and went to PFF gatherings.... when not fishing....just something to think about!!! Gulf Shores is way more family friendly or even Navarre beach....just my 2 cents..... as I have stayed at them all...and really don't have a problem with any...but then thats me as I only do and go certain places anyway.
