Default Fish?

Other than snapper, what ever fish can I catch right now? Need someone to point me in the right direction. We go out catch r endangered snapper in 30-45 minutes then go home. Lot of time and money spent for 1 hr of fishing.. where do i go to catch mingo and other fish? New to the offshore so i would appreciate any input.

You'll need to be in over 150 feet of water to catch mingos, but more like 200+ for any consistency. Porgy (white snapper) are just about everywhere from 50ft out and always open. All the grouper will be open starting tomorrow when gags open. You can also troll for spanish and king macks anywhere from the beach to 150ft-ish.

And remember to catch your snapper on the way back in.

There is an excellent app called Fish App that shows the pics of the fish, regulations, and whether they are in season or not....

Squid on a chicken rig has always worked for me for mingos. All the way to the bottom over live/ natural bottom

Yep, Mingo at the Edge is almost a guarantee.

Once in awhile the bite is OFF, but generally it's a good trip to take.

I caught 4 Mingo's 4 miles from the destin pass this weekend (and only 1 red snapper at that spot so go figure). They're out there close to shore, just gotta get lucky to find them instead of more restricted species.
