Hi forum members.
I’m a new old guy in Pensacola, FL.
I’m 47 years old, the father of two girls, and a high school teacher.
I’m not the best, most experienced angler, but I’ve got the itch bad and I’m trying to improve.
I have a fishing bucket list that I’m determined to complete.
My buddy had a bass tracker for a few years but then sold it so I’ve been “bank bound” for years.
I haven’t fished in a few years until this summer but I’m getting back into it.
I just bought my first boat, a 14’ jon boat. But I’m putting a few mods on it and haven’t had a chance to take it out yet so I’m still technically boatless.
Almost bought a kayak but the jon boat was too good of a deal to pass up. Kayak will have to wait until next summer.
I’ve fished the Escambia River and Delta grass flats extensively and almost exclusively looking for reds, specks, bass, and whatever else will eat my bait.
I’ve lived in Pensacola pretty much my whole life but I’ve never pier or surf or blue water fished...it’s shameful, I know, but I plan to give it a shot. I’m even interested in trying my hand at fly fishing...especially for reds on the flats.
Feel free to contact me if you’re close by (from Mobile to Destin) and let’s go get after some fishes.
