If you enjoy the adventure of the deeper waters, try heading offshore to some of Marco's wrecks or artificial reefs. Catch the famous grouper and snapper that will become your nights dinner or that gamefish that fights so well. King Mackeral, Little Tuni, Cobia, Permit, Shark or the granddaddy of Grouper, the Goliath Grouper (this monster can weigh up to 800 lbs.)
The waters here are warm and shallow which provides ample area with numerous kinds of fish. Because of the depth, the waters can get a little choppy when the winds are strong from the west. But our winds usually prevail from the East giving us somewhat calm conditions most of the year . This is great fun for the family and can often be combined with the backwater fishing for a combination trip of inshore and offshore fishing. Or if the kids need to stretch their legs stop off at a barrier island and find that one of a kind shell.
