South end of Palafox Street.

Green Way park - West side of highway 98 just before you cross the bridge from Pensacola to Gulf Breeze.

Pensacola Beach fishing pier at Casino Beach on Pensacola Beach

Ft. Pickens Pier at Ft. Pickens.

Probably more, but thats all that I can come up with on the spur. Good luck!

Project Greenshores (Pensacola side of the HWY 98 Bridge from Pens. to Bulf Breeze)

Bob Sykes Bridge (Fishing Bridge alongside driving bridge from Gulf Breeze to Pens. Beach)

Those two have the most space for fishing and high likelihood of reds. Pier net is pretty much a necessity though (could get away with conventional net as long as handle was looonnng from Greenshores).

The beach pier or Ft. pickens pier for them reds. Come prepared to fight like hell. Use a big hunk of cut mullet or a handsize live pinfish.
