You can catch them just a few miles offshore .
But your gonna have to put some miles on the boat to be able to consistently catch legal size ones.
Allthough in my experience larger ones seam to come in closer in the winter but your still gonna have to run a good ways out to catch a single keeper per angler.
20 miles out minimum

Hope everyone is going to be "brushed up" on their "Lesser" and "Greater " Amberjack identification skills! Telling the difference between them and the Almaco Jacks are a bit easier. I have not seen any instructional video on YouTube describing the differences- but it is mentioned in this video from a couple years ago.

I can't wait for a smooth day. Got a bait spot and an AJ spot that has always produced. I LOVE AJ steaks on the grill. And a 4 person limit is a great deal of meat. Just grilled my last AJ steaks last week, have been cryo-vacced since last year.

Going to grab a three man limit of jacks and flounder tomorrow. I will be surprised if I go more than 6 or 7 miles out!
