Default Vermilion snapper

We moved down her about 4 months ago. We have been trolling around and finding nice spots but all we can catch is red snapper. We have some friends coming down and wanted to put our sons on some beeliners. Are there any public wrecks that hold them or is there something in particular I need to try on the spots I have found? Thanks. We are fishing out of Pensacola pass.

You can go to the 29th edge literally anywhere and catch them. 180 ft. depth.

Yes...Typically in deeper water and a lot of times suspended up off the bottom .....say in about 40ft off the bottom.

Am I looking for structure or just get in deeper water?

The 29th edge runs form NE to SW for miles and miles with a depth of approximately 180ft. You can head SE, S, or SW out of Pcola pass and hit the edge. SE is considerably closer than SW but we usually fish more S and SW to avoid boats. It is mostly rock bottom and your depth finder will easily pick us structure and fish when you get there. I have fished the edge since the 70's and we love to anchor on a good spot and chum. That way you can take advantage of the topwater species, and set baits down for grouper, AJ's and such.. You can drop a two hook snapper rig near the bottom and catch beeliners almost anywhere on the edge. Squid is best.
