I am vacationing in Pensacola for college/leave spring break and really just want to fish. What offshore species are around?

I have read about sight-fishing for cobia. Would the time of my visit be too early?

What about king mackerel? How far out is it needed to catch mahi?

offshore

Wahoo and blackfin tuna within 30 -40 miles. Generally the Wahoo fishing can be very good then. Cobia fishing is almost a religion down here so 90% of the boats out in March will be on the beach. Mahi are not around yet and the kings are not here yet. although Spanish me be here by then.

Yea, has a lot to do with the strength of our winter / cold fronts! If we have a milder winter, kinda like we seem to be having now, things are more apt to pick up a little earlier in the season. I'd say by next month, we'll have a good idea.
I'm hoping for a banner year!
