Deep water springs and wrecks are a great place to fish when the weather allows.
Amberjack up to 60 pounds are quite common now. Take a mixed selection of live bait with you; each day it seems they want something different. While out there, don't be surprised if you get into some big cobia. They seem to be hanging around the wrecks in 100 feet of water.
Red grouper fishing in 100 feet is about as good as it gets. Most of our fish range from 8-15 pounds and are feeding on sardines and live baits. Watch for potholes and small breaks. These have been our most productive areas.
Before recent cold fronts, gag grouper fishing in 40 feet has been fun. Limits are coming daily on the moving tides. Remember to start with cut bait before sending down a pinfish. When the weather changes quickly it takes a little longer to get the big ones to bite.
