Deep Sea Fishing out of Ponce Inlet?

What could I expect on a party boat all day trip out of Ponce? Pictures I see on a few web sites indicate I might get a handful of fish under a pound each. Are there any boats that get into better fish?

    You'll likely have a decent chance at Amberjack and/or Cobia if you fish larger (preferably live) baits. Maybe some big mangrove snapper in the 3-8+ lb class as well. The little grunts and beeliners will be the main result if you fish little pieces of cut bait.

    Grouper up here are relatively few and far between, and party boats are too slow & can't afford the fuel to get out 35+ miles to where most of the good ones live. And red snapper are closed of course except for the limited 3 day season.
