The nipple area is past the edge but dropping live bait on any of those areas you circle would produce some grouper.

I've been trying to figure it out too, all we keep catching are snappers. We did manage one grouper but it was out of season and had to release it

Pretty solid information above. But focusing on a smaller piece of bottom and trying to keep the baits there is the best bet for grouper once we get in the sand near the structure we pick up snappers. We fish between the gulf and east coast of FL. Depending on the current don't be scared to add to the leader.We have been using the CMOR card for our gulf trips and has helped us out of towners put fish in the boat.
