Default First gulf trip

Me and my buddy are planning are first trip into the gulf this weekend. We are targeting kings and Spanish but would like to try and find some mahi. I'm just curious if any where in the beach is better to put in at then others fishing wise. I was planning on portofino or chicken bone.

450 feet. There is a square sign and a triangle sign on the shore. Line them up and go out to the second sand bar. If the water visibility is good, you can see them from the top of the water. If you have a mask and snorkel, bring it! It's a pretty cool reef.

That's one of my favorite places to kayak. There can be so much life there at certain times.

Sounds good to me. We were planning on meeting at gulf breeze bait and tackle around 6 then head to the beach from there.
