Default Just got my boat and ready to fish!

Hello everyone!

I just moved to pensacola not long ago and recently purchased a 21' Wellcraft. I'm ready to get off of the dock and do some fishing!

Ayn way, I was hoping someone might could point meto a few places in the bay where I can catch a few Flounder and maybe some reds.

I would appreciate any pointers you could give me, I just do notknow where to start. :bowdown

You can always try floating a finger mullet around the structures(channel markers, dock and bridge pilings over by Big Lagoon and the ICW. Has been know to produce a flattie now and again.

Don't limit yourself to those two fish right off the bat either. Some folks don't like them but the whites and ground mullet at the 3 mile bridge is pretty much a sure catch and I like the taste of both. Kids will have a blast also.

If you ask whites and ground mullet may not be the CORRECT name for them but that's what I call them.

Good luck on your ventures.

Dont listen to Murph his is one of those bluewater guys that think they know something about inshore fishing.:moonlol

No really where Murph has describe is a good allround spot. The 3 mile bridge holds a variety of fish. Reds, "white" trout, kings(hopefully soon), grouper, ground mullet.

Yep Spanish and Kings are in the bay right now. If it were I that was you, hehe, I would go early morning to the bouy that is a couple hundred yards off the Palafox Pier and float some live bait, ie menhaden, or I would work the wall around the Port if there are no big boats in the way. After that I would try the 3 mile bridge you can catch a little bit of everything there. The bridge rubble holds some monster reds. Or you could head out to pass if it's not too rough, troll a stretch or fish around the Pickens pier. Those are just some easy ideas.

You could also, if you haven't already, post in the Need a Crew Need a Ride section of this forum. I'm sure somebody would be happy to ride along and show you some spots.

That is fantastic ! Thanks to all of you! I will let you know how I do.

By the way, The 3 mile bridge you talk about, which one is it? Is it the I-10 bridge?
