Jigging out of WPB

Was wondering what jigging opportunities existed out of WPB? What species can realistically be targeted either by vertical jigging or casting out jigs?

    I mostly get amber jack & grouper on jigs. Occasionally I bring up a king. Sometimes I snag a random bottom fish. Some guys get tuna on them.

    I'm fishing vertical jigs over offshore structure.

    AJ season closes tomorrow in federal waters.

    Kingfish love jigs and it can be costly if they start clipping off jigs. Bonito love jigs and can provide lots of action. I've caught occasional blackfin tuna and cobia on wrecks. Big blue runners and smaller jacks common. Sharks like it when you hook big jacks. Usually good action on deep edge of the reef along Palm Beach County and artificial reefs.
