    This full-day trip is a great opportunity to combine fishing methods and target different species. You'll get to troll on the way out, trying to lure the fish by trolling before reeling them in, then bottom fishing when you head further out to a sweet spot. Amberjacks will be the main target, but these waters are full of surprises.
