I have fished in a bass boat in the gulf and had a great time. Just watch the weather, and stay close enough to get back in if the weather changes.
I actually had my old bass boat in the Pacific out of Newport harbor in 12 foot swells and it was great. There was a three masted schooner out there that would go out of site between the waves. The swells looked like mountains, but had enough distance between the waves that it was no problem.
Kevin, just go out, do your thing, and be safe.

Holy crap! This guy just wants to know what to fish for. Whether he can handle rough conditions or not, is moot.

I don't care what kinda boat you have, and I didn't read all 6 friggin pages, so if this has been covered, here it is again.

That is a bad time of year for somebody to come down from up north and try their hand at gulf trolling. You prolly won't catch shit. The only fish most people fish for, around that time, are sheepshead and redfish. Yeah you might find some other kinds of fish here and there, but if you want to catch some fish, start reading up on sheepshead fishing. It ain't trolling, but you can fill a cooler up with them that time of year. All you need is some fairly light tackle and some live shrimp or crabs. You are sure to have a blast...and eat good. Sheepshead are some damn fine eating.

I live in SW MI by Kalamazoo, so
Most of the time i fish out of South Haven or Benton harbor.
and sometimes i will go to the east side of the State and fish Saginaw Bay, LK ST Clair or even LK Erie.
There is some awesome Smallmouth and Walleye fishing on the east side of the State.

Early March is a great time to find big speckled trout coming out of the rivers moving through the bays. As others have said, fish around the intracoastal bridges and the 3-Mile Bridge. Have fun in March in NW Florida, it's a great time to be outdoors.
