A Few Beginners Tips For Offshore Fishing Success:
1. A depth finder, bottom recorder is an absolute must
2. Once you find good hard bottom or structure anchor the boat, drop some bottom lines with small pieces of shrimp or squid to see if there are any bait fish where you are at. If you catch a few smaller fish the chances are good you are anchored in the right spot.
3. Throw a flat line or free line out behind the boat with a Spanish Sardine, Hearing or Cigar Minnow as bait and let it just drift freely with the current and wind. You might catch a Barracuda, King Mackerel, Bonita, Cobia, shark or other specie of fish
4. Use some cut bait such as Grunts for bottom fishing
