I'm new to anything other than wade fishing. I'm a big SOB, so rather than spend a fortune on a kayak that would fit me, I got a pontooon boat. What I'm wondering is how far out are y'all going. I hear yout alk about catching kings and ling (offshore fish) and I wonder how far out y'all paddle? Question number 2 is do you prefer to fish off the bottom with a balloon or on the bottom with a weight? If you use a balloon, how much line do you drift under the balloon?
I live on the west end of Galveston, about a couple of blocks from the Galveston Pier. Does anyone ever launch from that area and if so do you have much luck?
