When the water temperature begins to drop in the fall, schools of baitfish migrate south to warmer waters.back to menu ↑
· Offshore fishing
Fishermen who fish offshore (also known as longline fishing) go out to sea more than nine miles from the shoreline, usually between 20 and 30 miles out. It involves a lot of time, a bigger boat, hefty fishing and weather gear, as well as a lot of sonar and radio gear. Red snapper, marlin, amberjack, mahi-mahi, and wahoo are some fish you can anticipate catching, depending on the weather and season.back to menu ↑
