Offshore: Craig shares that the offshore bite has been worth the trip out, and lots of flat clams days were available on weekends in late February. What's biting? Try dolphin, wahoo, and blackfin tuna in the triple ledge area in water 230 to 240-feet deep. Try dragging naked ballyhoo way, way, way back for the blackfin bite. Craog's Pro Tip is to either leave early or fish late since the tuna love low light conditions and will surface more readily then. When the bite slows down, then switch over to bottom fishing. Triggerfish, vermillion snapper, and black sea bass are plentiful. Try dropping multi hook rigs down and use Stingray wing strips for bait, since they are tougher and last longer, producing more time on the bottom each drop.
