I am not familiar with the Piggy Perch. It looks sort of like a pinfish? If it is, our pinfish live in shallow bay water up to 30’ maybe the deep water is just to much pressure. Or you hook and leader are to heavy for the bait to swim freely, restricting it’s oxygen. I use live, dead and even chunk bait for grouper with good results. Just my 2 cents if its worth anything.
