I find it sad that you didn't have anyone help you out on this fourm. I was in pensacola for a couple of years a couple of years ago. Hopefully while you were there some of the local fisherman helped you out. The fishing in Pensacola is similar to Lousiana. Fishing from the beach or in the inlets you can hook up with some whiting and Red's. Spanish mackeral, King mackeral and pompano can be caught from inshore as well as on the pier. For the Red's I would use strips of whiting which worked really well as well as shrimp. Also flounder are around the area but i never caught a good sized one. Hope this helps who ever plans on fishing there.
