Default Which Pier?

I'm coming up to Pensacola in May from Orlando.

I'm planning on hitting 3 mile bridge one day, and I have a guide for another day, but I would like to hit one of the piers.

Gulf Shores Pier, Ft. Pickens Pier or Pensacola Beach Pier?

Which one should I lean towards?

I'll be fishing on a weekday, so I'm hoping for light pier traffic.

I'd say Pensacola but that all depends on if the bait shows up. Since you'll have a Florida license pcola or Navarre would make the most sense. May can have cobis kings Spanish and some early tarpon along with the smaller surf fish.

For light traffic I would definitely lean towards Navarre.

What species are you looking for (surf or pelagic)?

Pensacola Beach Pier is closer to you and better chance for pelagics.
Plus IF'n you fish GSPPier you will need an Alabama saltwater license (just sayin ;-)
