Do you need specific info or are you just looking for generalties? I can give advice on both.
Yes I want both. I'm shopping for a good sailboat to do it in. And other than giving hurricane season a miss, when is a good time. I know in December the Gulf is somewhat stormy. SO late fall after the last named storm, or late spring after the last major cold front.
Those are the best times for offshore fishing anyway.
