Default April 25 - 28 Fort Pickens

My son and I are traveling to Fort Pickens to camp and kayak fish, arriving Wednesday afternoon / early evening and leaving Saturday morning to head back to Texas. We would like to do some BTB fishing if possible, looking for some tips or to meet up with someone to fish with as this will be our first time to fish Florida waters. We would like to catch something that we cannot catch in Texas, so no chasing reds and specs. Kings, Spanish, Tuna, Pompano, something that we can put in the cooler and take home. Take some nice pics and video and really have a great memory. We have a scheduled guide with Ty @ 30 miles out on Friday for 4 hours and other than that we are flying blind. Any help would be much appreciated.

Not sure that is why I am asking, I see posts on other forums and facebook. We hope to have a good time, with cleaner waters than what we are used to fishing in hopefully we can get into fish that we could not reach from a yak in Texas.

Kings, Spanish, and Pompano(possibly even a Cobia) should all be accessible beachside, given the right surf conditions to get out there. But if the conditions won't let you out of the bay, then inshore Spanish will fill your cooler and grouper and snapper will bend your pole...

Too early in the year for some possible inshore Pelagics.
My bad I read it as no to reds or specs, yes to the others...

OP,
forgive my piss poor reading comprehension.

As stated, if the gulf inshore/nearshore is yak"able, you're wide open for the forementioned Mack's and Pomp's, maybe some Bonito or a Cobe even.
Come back in June thru September and you'll have a chance at some Pelagics when they come nearer depending on temp, salinity and clarity, Blackfin, Dorado and even Sails.

Lots of Spanish were cruising and feeding just past the 1st sandbar last weekend. Saw some nice pompano caught surf fishing, but they seemed to be pretty scattered.

Be safe and hope you have some fun!
