After visiting the Pensacola Fishing Forum website many many times, I decided to join up. I recently took a job in Pensacola and will be moving down in two weeks. Being from the mountains of western North Carolina, I have NEVER saltwater fished, but thats not going to stop me from diving in head first. I'm gonna need lots and lots of help, thus, I look forward to learning all I can from these forums!! I've already read about a couple of good bait and tackle shops to visit for info and such, but just to confirm.....any that you guys suggest visiting or staying away from?

Thanks.

Some like Outcast offer everything, some like Gray's Tackle offer just a little. But I've not had a bad experience at any of the half dozen or so I've visited. I live on the west side so Gray's is handy. But somethings like bottom fishing and offshore trolling, Outcast is better for me.

I will say I get most of my fresh water stuff on the internet or at the Outcast spring sale. I avoid Walmart, but that's justthe liberal union member in me.

Thanks for the advice...I have to buy complete new stainless gear, so I'll definitely be visiting some shops.

Welcome aboard.. All the bait & tackle stores I have dealt with have never steared me the wrong way. To just get the general stuff nothing special just about any bait and tackle store will have it just really boils down to convience. If you need to revamp your whole tackle box, outcast has already had thier spring sale but they usually have a fall sale as well and sometimes offer pff members discounts. Just check the forum closer to the fall time and it will more than likely be brought up with date and times.
