Lets start with your boat size and type. Do you have any offshore experience anywhere else? What would you like to catch Pelagics or bottom dwellers? I'm in panama and there is a large variety of table fair in the waters here.

Im from louisiana and fished out of grande isle alot at the rigs but was always on friends boats using their equipment. I bought a wellcraft 22walkaround with a 150 johnson. I have rebuilt usa penns a 3/0, 4/0, and a 6/0. Im looking for bottom dwellers mainly. Just need some help getting going in the right direction.

If you want to catch bottom fish there is plenty of live bottom out west it starts about 15 miles on a 240-250 heading and goes for many miles. Its more of a drift and mark fish kinda of place. Don't get me wrong there are plenty of public reefs inside 10 miles of the pass that hold lots of fish. You can get these numbers from any dive shop in the area or on the Internet. I personally believe that the hard bottom out west is a lot less pressured due to the vastness of the area. Hope that helps some if you have any more questions I can give my opinion.

First thing to do, buy Sea Tow insurance. Don't leave home without it. Sea-r-cy
