Military Guy new to Tyndall AFB / PCB / Mexico Beach -- need help

What's up everybody?! Been a while since I've been in Florida. Just wanted to put my info out there. I am new to the panhandle. Have some fishing experience but really looking to meet some new people and get on the water. I'll only be stationed here 6-9 months. Not long enough to be buying a boat although I might get my hands on a yak (unsure on that yet) If any of you have a boat and going to get out I will be willing to help pay for gas/ice/bait/help clean. Whatever I need to do to earn my spot. However if not, I have access to tyndall so if anybody knows the waters around here and can give me some pointers, I would be forever grateful. I'm staying in Mexico beach, so help there would be wonderful as well. Just an honest military dude looking for tips or maybe a spot on a boat. Thanks in advance everybody! Also may be off topic, but does anybody spearfish here?

    What's your fishing experience and what are hoping to accomplish?

    When does your TAFB stay begin?

    Check out fb page = 'Panama City Fishing'... >7K members & lots of good info...
    There should be NO Commercial Fishing for any fish species considered 'Over-fished' , 'Undergoing Overfishing' or Subject to Recreational Seasons, Limits, or Closures... Game Fish Status IS the Answer !!!

    Oh.... that's not nice. What about the thriving PH section of Floridasportsman?

    I guess it's a shame that I don't have a facebook page.
