Hey yall. I'm planning to starting doing some offshore fishing (out of Fourchon), and was looking for any advice for people just starting out. I've done a good deal of inshore fishing (trout, reds, etc.), but this is a whole new territory for me. Any advice on techniques, baits, rigs/knots, or any other advice for beginners would be greatly appreciated. Do most people use live bait? I know oftentimes people will use cast nets to catch their own bait. Where could I go looking to catch live bait? Mostly trying to start catching Mahi-mahi, cobia, snapper, etc. Eventually would like to go out further for tuna. Any advice would be greatly appreciated to hopefully speed up the learning curve. Thanks in advance!
