Default Ledges off Steinhatchee

Headed down next week with the family to do some scalloping but would like to get on some grouper. Plan on trolling from 30-50ft. Any good resources to find some ledges? I’m assuming there is a top spots map or something. If I had more time I would try and do some scouting but gonna be a short trip.

Is it scallop time already?
Grouper may have moved a little deeper than 30'- 50' by now.I would try to troll a couple of stretch 30s starting at 50' and go deeper and watch your bottom machine. When you get bit mark it, then go back and drop bottom rigs. It's a process that does take time.

It would be much easier to target red snapper and it should be in season in the big bend area and alot easier to find on bottom machine.
