Fort Myers weekend trip

I'm taking the family over to Fort Myers over Labor day weekend and never fished the gulf. I've been dying to catch some grouper there for the longest time now and now have the opportunity to do it. I want my girls (12 and 16) to catch some nice fish. Do i need live bait or will frozen sardines do? I have a navionics card for my simrad that has some reefs listed. But not sure as to where to start, any tips or tactics as a base line to get me to where i need to be? I'll be near the San Carlos Bay area. Looking forward to some advice. Thanks
