If you get lucky and catch a weather window, there will be fish around. Sharks, snapper, cobia and jacks should be in the area, and maybe even a few Spanish. The trick is finding weather that will allow you to run offshore. Lots of people have informed me that wearing waders offshore is a super-dangerous thing, but I find that if I wear a wade belt snug around my waist that not much water can get into my waders even if I go in the water. I tried it a few times to see what would happen (in a pool) and even after floating and swimming for several minutes I was able to climb back into the yak and between the belt and pfd limiting water entry, I had almost zero water in my waders. If the water is not too cool you can get away with a rainsuit instead of waders.
