Default First Trip to the Edge

Went out saturday 9/27 to try out fishing on the edge for the first time, was hoping to get to shake off the grouper hex that has been put on me.all summer I have got 1 legal scamp and he was barely legal

I never found any bottom that looked like a ledge, or anything that looked like rocks, lumps, ridges

the bottom looked like a smoooooth slope and we didn't mark any fish at all, looked and looked and looked.We were south of the avocet where it drops off from 200- 350'

someone give me some tips on fishing the edge, I'm hungry for some grouper

Gave up and came back in, got 2 keeper AJ's, threw back some whopper snapper, got 2 short red grouper, everywhere we went flipper ate every single throw back.

Different areas along the edge have some nice ledges. We got one legal scamp out there today.

Basically due south of the Avocet out of Pensacola. The numbers cover approximately 2.5 miles of the edge.
