Default Scamp

Is edge only real option? How realistic is it to find within 10 miles of pass?

Yes this is a wife and young son do not want to go that far post - no, I am not asking for numbers. I just want to know if it is worth my time researching before I dig into it.

Thanks

I don't think I've ever caught any legal ones inside 15 miles or so

I caught one last year on an army tank. Small shiney baitfish dead or alive on a 3-4' leader.... flouro helps. We got one up yesterday on a 2 hook rig. Flipper wasn't quite fast enough. LOL

I'd say not realistic. I see the odd one or two at a ruble site...sometimes. Even those are more than 10 miles though. To target them would be about impossible I think. May catch a stray now and again but that is about it.

I was pretty sure I knew the answer - just wanted to confirm. I appreciate the input.

Fish swim when they get hungry. Sure scamp could be caught in close, but you gonna find them in deeper water which is a lot farther than 10 miles. Go find ledges and drop offs in 250 feet of water. There you will find them.

I've pulled one up at 3 barges once. Legal size but one day out of season. Back down he went!
