Default Definition of Inshore?

If asking about fishing out 9 miles in the gulf is that inshore or offshore? I've seen offshore as being related to blue water fishing much further out. I'm new to salt water fishing and just trying to post in the right spots.

I may be wrong, but I've always thought of it this way - at least in the Pensacola area:



Inshore: Inside the pass (Panama City, Destin, Pensacola, Alabama)



Nearshore: Outside the pass, but w/in sight of land.



Offshore: Land not in sight.

Well put, makes logical sense and pretty much how I call it!
