Trying to post pictures but can’t on phone. I catch more and bigger fish from Orange Beach than Pensacola . I average 10 to 12 lbs in Orange beach and struggle to get legals from Pensacola . I am not a great fisherman but seem to know what I am doing I catch fish ! Pensacola Public spots are fished so hard and by so many just not worth the time An gas ! I can go to the same spots in Orange Beach and limit out no problem but seems to take twice as long here in Pensacola to catch a legal fish . Hopefully Fla will do as Alabama has an but more Public stuff down for us to fish . I know you guys with private spots out of Pensacola catch good fish but us without any struggle . Just my option on this topic wish I could post my pics !!

AL went in bigly on their reef system. You can see it from the space station.

I think it's pretty well known red snapper are generally bigger over there due to the massive artificials. I lived in OB for a few years and it seems to be true to me.

Disagree 100%. My experience from fishing both is the exact opposite.

Alabama has many more public artificial reefs, more reefs mean more options for both fish and fisherman. More options = less pressure and competition = bigger fish.
