Default deep droping

Hope to do some deep dropping for the first time this weekend. I have the right rigs, and weights but have no locations. I am not asking for exact numbers (anyone want to give some good with me), but can someone that has done this before give at lest some areas to look for good bottom. And what kind of bottom am I looking for, big rocks, ledges, rough bottom?

I have not completey cracked the code - but I have gotten a few tiles and deep water groupers out there

Where to look -
Steps - 700 - 900 ft

What to look for - all of the above
Watch that bottom machine -
I like a split screen, with bottom lock on one -
If I mark fuzz - I bomb it
If I mark a ledge - I bomb it
if I mark a hump - I bomb it

A lot of swings and misses - but I have found a few spots

Hey old school, do a google search for diving reefs near Pensacola. The dive reports give you numbers, general directions, types of fish living on it. I'm in the exact position you are in. Bringing some friends down from Atlanta. Funny how Divers are willing to help others have a great time enjoying fishing while (fellow Fishermen) want you to find them on your own, they call it "paying your dues" PM if you need any help.
