Naples offshore overnighter

My plane leaves in a few hours and I just heard the conditions are right for an overnight trip 80+ miles out of Naples. I'm so pumped! I have a day and a half of client meetings planned, then head out into the gulf for 24 hours. We usually run 35-65 miles out and fish off wrecks or reefs for grouper and snapper, but this time we'll be heading a little further and staying much longer! One of my "checked bags" is a cooler of venison I'm going to exchange for a cooler of gulf shrimp, grouper and snapper for my return. There's nothing like fishing the saltwater and it's very addicting.

I will post pics of our catch when we return Saturday afternoon.

From what I've been reading, anything South of Tampa should be OK.

North not so much.
