How far out is considered deep sea fishing?
Deep Sea Fishing, also known as Offshore Fishing, is any type of fishing done in depths of over 100 feet. Deep Sea Fishing Charters will travel about 10-20 miles out into the Gulf or the Ocean, depending on your departure location.
What is the difference between offshore and deep sea fishing?
Offshore fishing or “deep sea” fishing, goes beyond thirty meters deep, by most definitions, and includes a wide range of deep sea fishing activities. Meanwhile, Inshore fishing, also known as “bay fishing,” largely refers to just about anything else, such as fishing near the coast or in an inlet from a boat.
What do you catch deep sea fishing?
These include Barracuda, California Sheephead, Lingcod, big Calico Bass, White Sea Bass, and Halibut. You’ll also get to fish for Rockfish, which is an umbrella term covering up to 100 different species you’ll find hiding along the ocean floor. There are a few more pelagic fish you’ll come across as well.
