Default Pensacola Beach Hilton?

I originally asked you guys where i could fish off the beach in Destin as i usually stay at the Hilton just east of the outlet malls and everyone gave me some good suggestion.

Well i just found out that this year i will be at the Hilton but in Pensacola not in Destin.

Could some of you guys give me the same type of advice as to where to fish? Beach is my preference but a pier will work also.

The pier is within walking distance from the Hilton. on P-Beach.

Lots of fishing off the beach, but most prefer to go east of Portifino Condo's or to Park West just before Fort Pickens, also called Chicken Bone beach

how fare is Portifino/Fort Pickens from the Hilton in Pensacola? if Pensacola is anything like Destin it sometimes can take 30 minutes to travel 5 miles.

Maybe 5 miles, look at Google Earth, and it is where the buildings stop heading east. Then there is 20 miles of no buildings to Navarre.

You won't have Destin type traffic on P-Beach

The beach is serene and pretty much empty at first light, even in front of the condos.

awesome. I am going to go fishing forsure. Here in Texas i usually use shrimp, live bait, or cut bait for fishing the beaches. I no longer throw lures like i did in my 20's. what do you guys use for beach fishing in Florida? I have seen post on fishbites, is that my only option?
