So, this Saturday is looking to be rather calm. I have a 21ft sea hunt (and a plethora of safety gear). I am considering a run to the edge for some grouper, wahoo, BIGGER Beeliners , etc.... is there a better plan this time of year?

Inshore/nearshore: Are the sheepies biting? picking up a 4 man slot redfish limit possible?

What/where do I fish this time of year?

I'd hit the edge. Don't forget to put out a couple of fly lines with live bait or cigars on them. I've caught some Black Fin Tuna that way while fishing for beeliners. (At anchor of course)

The weather is going to pick up out of the north quick by noon. Doable but it might be a choppy ride home.

It's looking better than yesterday. I'm going to try a grouper run Saturday morning.

Same, I will be at the edge by 730ish hopefully. Might push a little further out to some spots a friend gave me for some grouper.

But to answer your question about inshore Brntphish I went out Tuesday afternoon to Destin pass from 3pm to 5pm. Strong incoming tide and the Sheepshead were everywhere. They would only hit a Carolina rig.... We landed 8 in 2 hours.

So when leaving to go to the edge, what/where do you get bait?

We have historically stopped near the buoys near the Massachussets with sabikis, but that takes up valuable fishing time.

So do you:
1: Catch bait at the edge?
2. Buy Frozen Dead?
3. Buy Live from the bait boat?
4. An option i am not thinking of?

Bait boat hasn't been out lately. Use what you catch at the edge. Although cigs caught a few BF's a few weeks ago.

Fly line cigs, use bonita strips for grouper. Catch bait or Mingos on Bonito chunks. Live bait for anything top to bottom. Take some good Squid also.
