Default Possible, Impossible, or just plain stupid???

I know this is probably more for the offshore side but I figure most people on the Inshore forum could relate. Me and two of my buddies want to make a snapper trip out of venice. I choose venice b/c i was told you only have to go 8-10mi out for snapper. I have a 2110 Nautic bay and do not want to run to far out. I'd rather not drive that far so if anyone knows where I can catch snapper within 15 mi of the coast besides venice let me know. I live in Lafayette btw. Has anyone on this site been snapper fishing in a similar size rig? Or am I crazy for trying? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. And of course I will definatly be watching the wind forecast!!!

Ton's of people in our area travel 30-40 (from Cyp Point launch) then maybe 15-20 miles out of the pass just to catch trout when the go to EI, SMI, or VR blocks in bay boats... You'll be more than fine in your boat and you don't have to go all the way to Venice you can go out of FWC, Cocodrie, or even Grand Isle to just catch Snapper.

Some people have way more balls then brains. I remember going to nickle reef south of marsh island and see fools in 14' flats.

i would like to take my 18.5 foot striper vhull offshore but would only do it if i had a buddy boat. Or i had someone on board that frequented going out. the boat is definitely offshore worthy, although shorter than most bay boats, i got alot of FREEBOARD.and hold 62 gallons..
that would be cool if we got some salty dudes together and try to load up on red snappers and hopefully pull in 100+ triple tails...j/j.
