Ponce Inlet and nearby artificial reefs question

Looking to do some fishing both in the inlet and at some of the nearby reefs. I am not looking to go out more than 10-15 miles. Specifically I am looking to find out typical anchoring methods people use when fishing these areas. In the inlet will a standard danforth work or do I need more of a rock anchor? Out on the nearby reefs, specifically the ones without mooring balls, do people typically anchor in the sand near the reef and drift over it? Or do you just drift? Depths seem to range from 50-85 feet. I want to make sure I purchase enough anchor line.

    Well, three times your water depth for a good scope in your anchor line is standard but you can get buy with less if the current is slow. The artificial reefs out of Ponce range from clusters of bridge debris, culverts and boulders to sunken vessels. It's best to anchor up current and end up just in front of the "reef" but drifting can produce too.
