Offshore Activities Near Your Gulfstream Club

Offshore Fishing

While offshore or deep sea fishing can look very different depending on the trip, trolling is usually the first thing people think of. Trolling is done by setting out several baited lines at different distances, which are slowly pulled through the water by the boat. While trolling, the boat drives near underwater structures, ledges, or anything that may hold fish. With the bait dragging behind the boat, once a fish bites, the hook is set immediately. Fish commonly targeted while trolling—including marlin, tuna, wahoo, mahi mahi, and more—are capable of swimming at speeds of up to 50 mph, so trolling at 6 mph is not a problem.


Bottom Fishing

Bottom fishing is another type of offshore fishing, and can sometimes be done in nearshore waters. When you’re bottom fishing you will use weighted lines with jigs, live bait, or cut bait that are dropped down to deep structures like reefs and shipwrecks. Because they have shorter travel times, calm seas, and delicious fish, this type of trip is among the most popular. The fish usually targeted by bottom fishing include red snapper, grouper, and amberjack, all of which are stout fighters.


Cruise to a New Inlet

As offshore boats are usually larger, they have their advantages and disadvantages. Compared to bay boats, offshore boats provide more safety and a stable ride in offshore conditions, while also delivering the potential for more luxury, convenience, and seating space. Cruising through the open ocean from inlet to inlet is a great way to spend your Membership hours!
