This is very old information, but I used to do well on the Bridge Rubble. The trick was to be there at first light before all the dive boats arrived. Once the divers hit the water, I could still find a few on some of the scattered structure 100-150 yards away from the main rubble.

Anyone else have a tip? Just asking which of the public spots may be best.

Focus less on the spot and more on the bait, don't he afraid to go to large and let it really soak. We usually go 6' leader at least 10 cranks or so off the bottom. Sometimes they want something butterflied over something live. If you're catching AJs left and right youre too high in the water column IMO

We had luck at the tanks just south of the pier 3 weeks ago, 2 grouper, 4 legal snapper, and a king

Also lost a shark
