Double dropper rig. 4/0 hook. Find them and they will eat. Strip bait work great. Cut bonita or any other cut fish. Cigar minnows. It all works

High low rig with loop on bottom to secure weight. Rig is made of 100lb fluorocarbon leader. Simple j hooks.

Are they normally a little higher up than red snapper? Also a little deeper?

Chicken rig with squid. Let the weight hit the bottom, crank it up a few feet. Should get a double.

You just have to find out where they are holding in the water column. Once I hook up on a fish. I will push the line to the side of the reel for 5-7 turns. When I drop back down and I see my line bunched up on the side I stop it. Usually a minute or two later I am hooked up again. I just repeat this process. We have caught several limits doing this.

Chicken rig, small hooks, and little tiny bait, like 1 tentacle from a squid. The trouble is trying to not hook an ARS, but we often have to weed through 5-10 ARS for every b liner unless we are way way deep.

I use Hayabusa #6 in chartreuse and will pull a full string of them up . You could probably go up in hook/leader size if specifically targeting them , it gets torn up quick .

And that should be 100% legal in Florida because fish bites aren’t natural bait, therefore you don’t need a circle hook correct?

Hadn't thought about it.
You can get circle hook sabikis from Mustad,Hayabusa and Eagle Claw.

Gulpman,

There are some pretty good vids on YouTube making dropper rigs and t-branches (no metal). The lack of metal works great on various "spooky" species too. I make mine with mono or fluoro, depending.

Here's a few examples of a conventional dropper as well as a double line drop:




On same subject, here is single strong T-Branch with snelled hooks I use for heavier lines. Example for Queens:
