You should probably post this on the relocation forum.
No one is going to divulge their hot spots, so you can forget that idea unless you go out on a private charter.

let me rephrase:

do people fish off of <20' vessels. the ocean depth drops off so close to shore...i was wondering if small boats can easily access the fishing grounds? thank you

Having been in a 26 and 32 ft boat during 6-8 foot seas I can say I wouldn't want to be out in a boat <20 ft. I'm sure there are days you could get out there but things change fast. I have never been sea sick in my life until trip on 32. I was chumming the water for an hour

Yes, as long as you have a seaworthy boat.

let me rephrase my rephrase:

the shelf lies 1/2 mile to 4 miles off shore---seems too good to be true, such close access.
it appears a fishing paradise----what am i missing?
