Kings out of Ponce?

I normally fish out of st Augustine, but Friday I am taking a few friends out off Ponce inlet.  Any suggestions for what we should shoot for?  Kingfish slow trolling?

    Public reefs have snapper... and I just got a 30lb king on North East Ridge just free lining a chunk of grunt behind the boat while bottom fishing.... also saw several schools of Bonita hitting bait on the way out.

    best way to catch kings. I you can find the cigar minnows or herrring, even better.

    I also normally fish out of St Aug or Mayport.  I made a trip down to Ponce this past Saturday.  Started at about 130'.  Lot's of life but no takers.  Came back in to 68' for the kids to bend a rod on some bottom fish.  With the boys wearing out the lanes and beeliners I free lined a frozen cigar minnow.  10 min later -  WHAMO!!  BIG King on the line..  Had to be close to 50lbs after it bottomed out the 40lb scale i had on board!  Spent all of Sunday tending the smoker...
