Question Yellow Gravel?

I will be fishing out of the OB area Labor Day weekend. Depending on what the water looks like on the Roffs report I was thinking of trolling the elbow and bottom fishing in that general area for some grouper and AJs. I have about 5 numbers in my Hilton's Atlas for Yellow Gravel in that area. Does anybody know if it is a good place to target some grouper (Scamps and Reds) or will it pretty much be covered in snapper?

Plenty of scamp. Some AJ. Some gags. Have not caught a red grouper there, but may be just bad luck. You will catch snapper, but where will you not? Fairly good mingo bite out there as well.

We catch a god grade of scamps there if you use a 8oz diamond jig and just yogi it up to about 6' off the bottom you will do good with the scamps we've caught a few nice gag out that way to

Looks bad for the weekend. The labor day tournament will be rough.
