Default grouper off the pier

I heard people talking about hopefully catching groupers off the piers after a big storm like this. How do you fish for them? Best bait and setup?

Usually we have to have a direct hit for the groupers to show up on the piers but if they do, you will actually be able to see them beneath the pilings and they will eat almost anything you present them.

If you caught a grouper in shallow enough water do they tail dance and head shake like a largemouth ?

I catch them in 10 feet of water all the time on NAS, just throw out a carolina rig with an alewife or finger mullet (only bulk up your leader and hook) and your in business

Man I sure miss fishing around NAS. Those steps going into the water by the submerged wall is a flounder Heaven, along with the whole wall.
