Memorial weekend Fishing

We rented a place on Cape San Blas for the weekend. Brought the boat with us and headed out fishing. Could seem to get anything going on the bottom (could find any structures). So we decided to troll some spoons and a gocha lures. We caught 6 Dophins (Mahai Mahi) I was shocked! No weed lines, no floating debris, nothing. They seem to be in the shipping channel. They were caught on the silver spoons. We also caught 8 large King Mackerel they hit both didn't seem to care. We were about 6 miles off shore, trolling about 5-6 mph. Best action seemed to be between 4-9pm. Also caught a few spansh Mackerel too but they were caught between 2-4pm most day.

Just wondering where everyone else is finding the dolphin, I would think farther out but I don't know. 

Also I downloaded the artificial reef coordinates and didn't seem to find any of them, anyone else have a hard time finding post hurricane?
