We find some great fish near shore. Many people are more comfortable staying a few miles or less from the shoreline.
We have over a dozen different species ranging from King and Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, Amberjack, Barracuda and more.
I will use the “Run and Gun” tactical cruising approach to sight cast to the surface-feeding species by looking for visual cues like diving birds and baits breaking on the surface.
The availability of Nearshore Gulf species is all about the seasons, water temperature, and fish migrations. I will give you some lessons that you will be able to use in all of your future fishing endeavors.
