Just found out today that after Korea I'm going to be in Florida in 2015. Im going to be stationed at Hurlburt Field which is near Pensacola so my question is has anyone fished that part of Florida i know its also close to Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

Only places I have fished in Fla. has been Orange Lake and Lake Griffin but that was a lot of years ago. Did pretty good at Griffin the times I was there.

Good salt water fishing around there. Redfish, trout, and more.

Open your eyes & look within, are you satisfied with the life youre living.

No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life. Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs.

I used to be stationed at NAS Pensacola and fished club tourneys there. We fished the Tensaw River north of Mobile, the Alabama River, the Perdido River on the border between FL and AL, Apalachicola Bay, Lake Talquin, Lake Jackson and (my favorite) Lake Seminole. There are a lot of very diverse fisheries to choose from. Save your money in Korea and get yourself a boat when you get back and I bet you will have a great time there.

PCB has some killer Cobia/Ling fishing. Catch Red Snapper in the bays. Never fished any Freshwater around there.

I was stationed at Moody AFB GA in the early 90's after returning from overseas. Joined a bass club and got to learn a lot from all the guys. Got to fish most of the lakes Tomcat21 had and then a few more like ST johns river, Eufaula Al, West point and of course Okeechobee. I think u would really enjoy some club events to get your feet wet and go from there. Built some great relationships with those guys and still get to fish with them some. Headed back to Okeechobee again for annual Christmas trip. The guys I fished with the most are all FLW Pros and Co-Anglers on the FLW Trails. Enjoy your Florida PCS and welcome Home! Thanks for your sacrifice while serving!!

Was stationed in Pensacola back in the 80s. Fished all the places TOMCAT21 mentioned plus, Blackwater River in Milton, Lake Shelby at Gulf Shores. Lots of places to choose from that are relatively close to where you will be stationed. Endless saltwater locations to choose from.

Recently fished the Clearwater/Tampa area. Understanding that saltwater guide prices might be a bit higher, I was shocked at how much higher the average guide price was (more than double). We are fortunate to have such reasonable fishing guide prices here in Texas.

The fish in my sig are both from Talquin in December! I went to FSU and probably spent way too much time on that lake and not enough studying lol!
