Deep wrecks near Big Pine

I've been bringing my family down to the lower keys every year for over a decade. We love fishing the reef and snorkeling Looe Key. My 17 y.o. Daughter is no longer content to catch yellow tails and the occasional grouper and 'cuda. I'd like to take her out to some deep wrecks where she will have a shot at some AJs, big grouper, muttons and paleagics. I have fished the Busch with some success but it is often crowded (and sharky). The Wilkes Barre is a possibility but has a reputation as a shark feeding station. I have seen a wreck called the Lake City on lists of wrecks in the area but have never heard of anyone fishing it. Any suggestions for wreck fishing out of Big Pine? Has anyone ever fished the Lake City?
