Default Advice for the weekend needed

Well with the weather reports now saying 2-4ft rather than 1-3 i'm a little nervous to head all the way out to the tenneco like i was planning a few days ago. I was hoping some of you guys could give me some advice on what to target and how if i don't end up trusting the weather enough to go to the tenneco. I've only had my boat a couple months and it's a 23 ft CC so I don't wanna push it. I could head out of destin or p'cola. any idea's on where i could go maybe within 10 mile's of those passes? I'm tryin to not spend another weekend catching all red snapper. Thanks in advance.

Get the biggest live baits you can -- Hot Spots has some big pinfish -- and hit the I-10 rubble (9.5 out of Pcola) and hope for the best.

With a 23 CC, you'd be more than fine for a run in 2-4 footers to anywhere you have gas to go. The boat is capable of more than you think but I understand not wanting to find jsut what it's capable of.

do you have the coordinates for the I-10 rubble? i remember putting in coords for "bridge rubble" somewhere out of p'cola but dunno if its the same as you say. I know the boat can handle that i just don't wanna push it all the way to the tenneco in 4 footers if it got that bad until i have some more experience. i got caught in 5 footers a month ago on my first trip out and learned a ton about handlin the boat and what she can take, just don't wanna push it too far too early. trying to not be ballsie too soon.

good luck on that, we had a tough time staying away from em today, we used the largest live baits we could catch, (croakers and white trout) and still caught upwards of 60 fish not even trying.

Try doing some jigging instead of strictly using live bait. I haven't been able to go for a while but I have a friend who has been consistently limiting out on Groupers on jigs. Just your basic bucktail jig will do. You don't have to fool with the butterfly jigs. Pick up some Ling jigs in chartreuse or orange.

What were u catching on the croakers that I'm assuming were live? I know I've caught plenty of those recently.
