Default Struggling to find grouper

Can anyone give me in pointers to find grouper? I have fished the edge quite a few times to find grouper or scamp, but have never caught any. Would I fish the bottom of a ledge or the top? Is drifting through rocky areas a productive way to find grouper? I've used pinfish and b-liners with no luck. Recently, I bought the CMOR map and fished a few areas that I thought would hold grouper, but found none. I've been skunked every time. I have no problems finding other species.

Need to find some hard bottom in 175'-250' roughly. If you don't know what hard bottom looks like on your machine do some searches online you should be able to find some screenshots. I catch grouper on hard bottom areas sometimes I cant even see any actual structure.
