Fishing/spear fishing in Pensacola area in April

Wife and me will be visiting Pensacola in April (early part). Will be bringing her 17 foot Key West cc, our fishing gear, and my SCUBA gear (as long as the water temp isn't below 68 at that time of year). Will be staying with my parents who live off 9th avenue right off I-10.

So, where should be launch from, what sort of fish should we expect to catch (we like to eat fish, so Spanish mack, snapper, flounder, etc. would be nice to target). I spearfish and would love to nail a bunch of lionfish.

I'd be up to a dive/lionfish charter trip as well.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

    There's not a lot of folks on this Forum page out of the Pensacola area.........mostly just Panama City & a few from the Destin area. You may want to also post on the Pensacola Fishing Forum's pretty active & you may get better response with local knowledge in that particular area.

    Hope this helps. Good luck!

    Livin' the Dream !
