Hey Everyone. First time poster, long time fan of the forum. Looking for some insight and advice here if anyone is willing to give it. I've been fishing saltwater since I was a kid. I deck-handed back in high school for a few years out of Dana Wharf and have been on countless cattleboat trips both day and long range. I consider myself a relatively accomplished fisherman (when on a cattleboat). Last year I bought a 23' fishing boat with a buddy (fixer upper) and am finally ready to actually start fishing it, now that it's sea worthy. As we started planning our first full day trip, I realized something... I know absolutely nothing about where to fish. Without a knowledgeable captain leading the trip, I am literally starting from scratch. I never realized how un-knowledgeable I was on my own. I just took for granted that the captain would take me to biting fish. I guess what I'm looking for is some rough guidance about where to head to find fish. I sort of have a basic handle on calicos and local stuff. But I have no idea where to head for yellows & other larger game fish besides the Islands. Even then, I wouldn't know where to start exactly. Now, I'm not asking for any secret spots or trying to take advantage of someone else's hard work finding fishing spots. I'm just wondering if there are any well known areas I should hit first. I'd love to load in a few spots to my chartplotter. As of now I'd just head out of the harbor and drive aimlessly, cold and alone, crying in the fetal position because I didn't know where to go. Any info is welcomed! Thanks in advance.
