Default Nearshore Mingos - there all year?

Got a question for all of you with far more experience.... During the fall snapper season I made it offshore a few times, about ten miles out, and pulled up plenty of Mingos in addition to ARS, blacks, and a lane or two. Do the Mingos, lanes, and blacks stick around that close to shore all year? Or in the cold months are they farther offshore? Just day dreaming of a day <2'. Thanks.

From my experience in saltwater fishing within the winter months the fish actually move closer to shore, rather than farther out. For example, within the winter months I catch far more gags and snapper and even lane snapper within the bay, just find a wreck within at least 25' of water with some relief and lower live finger mullet or menhaden if available, if not dead menhaden or fresh shrimp seems to work extremely well, also if targeting grouper use live pinfish with 60lb fluorocarbon or bigger leader attached to 80lb power pro so that you can get them off the wreck quick!! hope this helps!! Happy fishing!!

Hi,
Sorry to hijack the thread, but I have responded to a couple of your texts several times without any info back to me. Also, I have tried sending you a PM on the PFF several times without a response back. Let me know how I can call, text or email you in order to pick-up the Free Safety Gear Bag. Thanks!

Steve
