Marathon fishing advice

Hey everyone,

I'm coming down from South Florida in a few weeks (11/11) to do some fishing. We're looking into renting a boat and hoping to target some tuna, grouper, or snapper - basically some eating! Any advice as far as best setup, bait, areas to fish, time of day, etc? We're fairly new to fishing but have had some successful Mahi trips out of Fort Lauderdale. Any help/advice would be appreciated!

Thanks!

    Hey jwalk,You probably don't want to hear this but by the nature of your questions I'd look into hiring a captain/mate for the day.The 4-500 hundred will be money well spent.Ask a lot of questions and watch everything.Good luck,Lu

    Hi my name is Benny, I know the area well. Find a drop off in 85 to 110 feet and anchor and chum, you should get ballyhoo to come close. Cast net some and send them down alive, grouper should turn on real well after having all these winds and some muttons can be caught in that depth also and even shallower. good luck and tight lines
