Default Bay snapper and grouper?

Just curious about fishing for grouper and snapper in the bay, r people doing there fishing closer to fort pickens and what king of water depth are we talking. Not asking for bottom locations just general area. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Myself and a friend of mine have hooked into a few snapper and some nice grouper this past week right off the seawall on NAS.

I fish around the Fort Pickens area a lot but I also fish the main part of the bay almost all the way to the 3 mile bridge. Productive depths seem to range from 25 to 60 feet of water so if you find something anywhere in the range it may be productive.

Listen to this guy, He is the king when it comes to bay grouper... He knows his stuff and knows what he is talking about. Go by hotspots and talk to Matt or Chris, im sure they will be able to get you the right bait and point you in the right direction.

Went out sunday thanks go out to the guys at Hot Spot for the info. Caught one under size snapper, a small shark, and got broke off three times. Fought one fish for about ten minutes. How big r the sharks usually caught? Thinking maybe it was a shark, if it was he was a big fish. Never saw the fish but it put up a fight for a 345 GTI , any ideas?

NAS Seawall, Port Ops, LEX Pier (carrier pier), jetties in the pass hold red snapper and grouper if you can pull them out
