Question Inbound from VA

Hey guys,

Looks like I'll be stationed at Maxwell AFB in Montgomery this summer, and I'm trying to find out everything I can about the AL/FL salt situation before I get there to ensure I don't lose any of that precious summer fishing. I'm in Yorktown VA now, so I tend to do mostly flats fishing for pups, specks and striper (when they decide to show up).

If I'll be up in Montgomery, and mainly taking road trips on the weekend to the coast, are there some bodies of water anyone would suggest to help get slime back on my kayak? Not really looking to surf launch just yet, but maybe one day. Trying to find some nice flats where I can avoid PBs and most of the crowds.

One last request ... any suggestions on tried and true local tackle shops in the area?

Definitely appreciate any help.


Tight lines!

Welcome aboard, and I wish I could be more help but you'll be away from me.... May wanna talk to some more military guys/gals. I know they do alot of shore fishing from NAS and I'm sure you could catch a ride w/ someone!

Jim's Fish Camp off Hwy. 90 between Pensacola and Milton at the mouth of the Escambia River. Great bait shop. Both fresh and salt.

Jim's has bait if you need it, but I am not of fan of the place. $4 or so to launch and God help you if you park in the wrong place, take too long launching or look at him sideways. There is a free kayak launch 100 yards away.

That said, Sherman Cove marina on NAS Pensacola is a great place to launch - free, easy and very short trip to the NMZ behind Fort McRee or fish the flats in the sound. Beautiful sand and clear water.
