1st Time OffShore on the Ski

Went 7 miles out to the 1st platform off Matagorda. The weather was outstanding. The Water was crystal clear. The only thing missing was fish in my cooler. I'm an offshore novice and headed offshore based on conditions with inshore tackle. I hooked into three mystery fish that made my reel sing then chafed off. My 1st outing may have been a bust but I'm ready for the next one.

Not much boat for the gulf of Mexico. I’ve seen sharks out there that would think you’re nothing but a small fishing lure to them. Stay safe....

Hook up with some others out there and buddy up. You need wire leader out there drift fishing. Most fish are toothy and will cut you off. Bottom fishing up close to the rig a Carolina rig will work with a heavy mono leader. Be prepared at any moment one of these toothy fish an go airborne right at you.

Man tell me about it.

I've seen them fishing and diving out there but by far the largest shark I've seen was a hammer head from a helicopter off of Brian's Beach. Thing had to be 16' and was just cruising along inside the second bar while all the kids were frolicking in the first gut.

Pilot told me it was the biggest he'd seen and I believe it.

Decided then that Chief Brody was right and a bigger boat would be needed.

This is the place to learn how to fish off your jet ski and to also meetup with others on the water. We always go in small groups for safety and are open to helping others get started in the sport. We generally fish state waters within 9NM but when the conditions are right we head out 20-30NM. For safety we follow the same protocol as boaters; VHF, EPIRB, Aerial Flares, and everyone carries a pre-rigged tow rope and water intake hose just in case. SeaTow/Boat Tow US insurance is also recommended. On occasion we post trip reports on 2Cool, except to see more this summer. There is a small group going out tomorrow out of Surfside, details on our FB Group listed above.
