For months fishermen have been forced to fish within nine-miles of the beach, but tomorrow is a new day.
The federal fishing ban has been lifted from Pensacola to Cape San Blas. No oil has been observed in those waters since July 3, said National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration Administrator Jane Lubchenco during a Tuesday press conference on Panama City Beach. She said fish caught there havenâ€™t shown any signs of contamination. Federal waters west of Pensacola remain closed.
