Default pensacola pass advice

I have fished the pensacola pass a couple of times the past week hoping to hook up with a bull red or grouper. I am using an 80lb leader, 3 oz weight and circle hook with pin fish and croakers. I am drifting the channel at the pass in like 50 to 70 ft of water. No bull reds or grouper but 2 to 3 foot sharks are plenty. Is anyone else catching a lot of small sharks and is there domething else I should be doing. Maybe move out the pass a little? Thanks

In my past experiences I've always stayed closer to the base side close to the rock no grouper but lots and lots of bullies I caught alot of mine on either cut mullet or large gulp shrimp and let it drift twards the rocks!

try drift fishing the last jetty going out the pass on a outgoing tide, fish the bottom with live bull minnows, shrimp, pinfish, blue crabs, even gulps. throw right by the rocks, the redfish will sit on the other side of the the rocks waiting for the current to bring the bait to them.... then bam...good luck

Fall is baby shark time. Just keep at it and you'll eventually wade through em to what you want.

Good luck,
Alex
