Offshore and inshore!
I am docked on the New Pass inlet, so I can be offshore within five minutes. We might fish one or the other or both in a four hour trip. A base trip covers all of Sarasota bay and up to six miles offshore in the Gulf of Mexico.
Where we fish for that day will depend on the weather, sea conditions, and fish. I do not book a trip for offshore fishing only because of the size of my boat. The advantages of fishing on a boat of my size are speed and flexibility and the option of fishing for all species when available.
