Recreational fishing in Pensacola is actually very competitive as a result getting on the fish can be difficult. Private numbers are difficult to obtain, yet public numbers abound. During Red Snapper season you'll be amazed at the number of boats jostling for position on a public wreck. Fishing these public numbers can actually be very productive and believe it or not you can limit out.
By all means use our numbers

Leave No Trace Behind
A wise-man once said, "What ever happens to the animals will one day happen to us". for this reason we encourage people to fish responsibly and keep only what they intend to eat.
Natures Perfect Bait
In general regardless if its fresh or saltwater, its hard to beat the natural prey of fish. The use of circle hooks has helped tremendously by reducing the number of stomach hooked fish.
Fishing In The Dark
Sometimes The Bite Is Better
The bite often turns on after sundown and lasts for about 4 or 5 hours in saltwater. frequently a properly prepared fisherman can slide out catch that 30 pound Redfish and be back home by 10 pm.
