None that I can think of. Why can't you go off Pensacola Beach pier? Just say you're fishing for "stingrays- they make for good nuggets!" They'll probably just look at you wierd.

EDIT: OK i'm sittin here and my mind turns mischievous. They can't tell you that YOU can't shark fish. Seeing the past reports and pics it is clearly evident that shark fishing is allowed. If you are asked to "stop sharkfishing"- you are being discriminated against. Sue and you own the pier. I'm thinkin free beer and fishing! I'm thinking Saturday Shark Slam!

On a serious note: I hear ya. I used to shark fish off both the Pensacola and Navarre piers from 1979. Hell of a good time with some neat folks. Seen some bigsharks pulled up. Big Hammerheads and Tigers! Used to be a guynicknamed "Moon Belly" that was the leading shark slayer. He'd come out there with his 16/o and put outa big live bonita on a 12' leader and wait. Come 2 o'clock in the morning it'd start talkin. Sometimes he won, sometimes the shark won. It was always a show!

Suppose nowadays it wouldn't be good publicity if you pulled a monster up on the pier. Next thing you know we got a bunch of PETA activists puttin on media event. Might damn ruin Cobia season!

I think the city,as well as the pier, is worried about the bad PR pulling big sharks on the pier brings.

Pensacola got a lot of bad press after those attacks 5 or 6 yrs ago. It sucks, but they have to

cater to the tourist industry I guess.
