How do you jig for just bottom species like grouper, snapper, triggers? I am trying to target them more this year. i have a few new jigs i want to try out and wanted to see if anyone could help. Below are the jigs i have seen in most reports catching these.

Roscoe jig

Pot Roast

Thank you

grouper like it on or real close to the bottom, snapper like it in the water column where they are and just bounce it and triggers like it twitched with gold hooks works best for me.

Don't forget OTI Jumbo/Jager and Smith Dunk Shot. DS is absolutely lethal on bottom fish. 80&150g for snapper/trigger up to 150', and 300g and 200-300' for grouper.

Trebles are already included on bottom of 80g DS. And they're prob OK for triggers/snappers. But my suggestion is to use a big single hook on tail (or single assist) on 150 and 300g. Next time I'm going to try 11/0 Owner SJ41 on the 300g and Gama 8/0 siwash on the 150g.
