Mud Minnows For Offshore Fishing
Many anglers choose to fish offshore structure for redfish, flounder, and black sea bass using bucktail jigs or other forms of live bait.
Weedless spoon jigs have even been known to work for black sea bass hanging around offshore reefs.
As far as rigging choices, we rely on the standard Carolina Rig for offshore live bait fishing.
Depending on where you are fishing, egg sinker weights may vary.
But, your rig should look standard to a normal Carolina Rig starting with your egg sinker, then leading to a bead and the swivel connected to 40-lb monofilament tipped with your bait hook.

Mud minnows are definitely a useful bait even for offshore fishing trips to target black sea bass and MONSTER redfish.
By using a simple Carolina Rig, you can have yourself a great day fishing underwater reefs or other structure.
Be sure to use the proper leader line to make sure you have enough protection against abrasion from structure.
