I drove over to the new Pensacola Bridge last Monday. It was full of people. It is shorter than the old one, and much better built. I can no longer use my little wooden pole holders that I bought at the bait shop there. It was sad to not see John Soules who use to have the lease on the bridge. I heard that March 1 they will start charging to fish on it. Does anyone know how much? It was so cold that day that I did not try to fish, but I am going back. It is a 120 miles trek for me, but I always loved the bridge, and I am glad to see it back.

Good luck to all of you, that go fishing off of it....

From todays PNJ:



Fees are expected to be set in mid-March for the new Pensacola Bay Fishing Bridge.



Until then, use of the $11 million fishing bridge is free.



A list of fees was proposed to Escambia County commissioners Thursday. But it was determined that the fees needed to be increased slightly to pay for the estimated $10,000 to $15,000 cost of fixing the damaged concession building at Wayside Park, owned by the City of Pensacola.



The fees initially proposed were:



- Per fisher: $2 daily, $70 annual.



- Per vehicle, $1 daily, $35 annual.



- Senior (62+): $1 daily, $35 annual.



- Children (15-): Free.



- Non-fishing pedestrians: Free.



Keith Wilkins, deputy chief of Neighborhood and Community Services for Escambia County, who proposed the fees, plans to present revised increased fees to commissioners at the March 4 meeting.



A volunteer is manning the pier and he might even ask you to participate in a survey, asking things like where you are from and what kind of fish you are catching.



Meanwhile, the county will be trying to negotiate an agreement for the use of the city?s connected park and concession facilities, and hire a concessionaire to operate the fishing facilities.
