manasota key trembely reef

I have only been able to make it out 2 days so far to the reefs fished Manley tremble. We caught a few small mackerel. Caught 2 nurse sharks, 1 over 8 ft. Besides that its been pretty slow. Have been fishing pin fish and finger mullet live and cut bait mullet, squid, mackerel. Have 2 more days of the trip. Any advice. Should I run out farther. Is the different reef that is more productive this time of year. Different type of bait or presentation.

    try running to 70-80 ft. I'm not familiar with that reef. but you should be able to find some red grouper at those depths. look for swiss cheese bottom or small reliefs, 1-4 ft. good luck
