Fishing Offshore Structure In A Flats Boat
Fishing offshore oil rigs can produce lots of fish that like to hang tight to the structure where they feel comfortable.
It is worth setting a drift down current, away from the oil rig after testing out the rig itself.
Sometimes when you are out fishing the deep oil rigs, fish will move and set up down current.
Fishing offshore in a smaller vessel like a flats boat is definitely possible and can yield great results!
Be sure to pick your days right and find a nice, calm time to set out offshore and target larger fish around structures.

Fishing offshore is limited to those that do not have the vessel to get them out there, but if you keep an eye on the weather and conditions, you can get yourself out there on a flats boat to catch big fish.
Oil rigs and structures provide places for fish to feed, feel safe, and hold throughout the year and are great places to bottom jig and hook into large fish.
Be sure to be safe and use proper judgment if you are going to fish offshore in a flats boat!!
