I lived on Eglin for five years. Yes there are lots of places to fish. How big is your boat? What species are you targeting. I ve caught cobia-barracuda all from the shore around the base. You have to change tactics as the season changes. But mostly specs/ reds/flounder/sheeps head.Try the shell pile. postal point, TLF, The sailboat marina, the canal leading to the main marina. all of these places hold fish. The key to catching them is to be there at the right time.Right now you have be there before the boat traffic starts, so that means you have to get up at odark30 Good luck
Only active duty, retired, military dependents and DOD Contractors have access to the base, unless you can get someone to sponsor you on. If you have a sponsor to get you on base, you can launch at the yacht club or Postl Point ramps.
Been fishing in Destin for most of my 45 years. Caught some real nice mangrove snappers a week or so ago at the mid bay bridgeon live greenies. Just moving around from piling to piling. Had a few hooked that I never slowed down. Probably those pesky redfish.This cold front should have the flounder moving. Good luck.
