If you want to catch big fish you need to book a full day trip to be able to get out far enough. The gulf is be very shallow. 14 miles out is only 35 to 40 ft deep,and you will essentially only be into snapper and grouper. Ask your charter what is possible to catch and what he recommends to get a sense of what size of fish you're going to get into.

Went with Tony Fontana today, got blown off the golf and fished backwater. Caught a mix of snapper, jacks, lady fish, Sheepshead and finished with a nice snook. Thanks for the recommendations had a great time Here is a few pictures. We sure picked a good week to get away. post-153876-14241387484743_thumb.jpgpost-153876-14241387753443_thumb.jpgpost-153876-14241387887693_thumb.jpgpost-153876-14241388051289_thumb.jpgpost-153876-14241388196936_thumb.jpgpost-153876-14241388338838_thumb.jpg

Good for you! I've been daydreaming Florida's Golf Coast for about 2 weeks now watching all sorts of youtube videos.

Some of them yep. Had the wind been down we could have and would have headed offshore out of the pass however due to a high south wind we fished the backwaters off the pass.

Some of those spots look very familiar to me . We fish a lot from the pass inland about 1/2 mile or so till you hit the intersection of where you head south to Marco on the inland canal. Glad you had a good time. I like to fish the rocks on the south side of the outlet and drift w/ the current, but if its windy , no way. We like to use white bucktails w/ shrimp.

 

 Did you see the Bald Eagle in the tree by the Outlet ? And did the dolphins come begging for your catch?
