Default Offshore Bottoms - What to look for?

I know the typical things like wrecks and reefs. But what specifically do you guys look for and get giddy about when you find it? Yesterday, I came across a big "hump" in 365' of water and it was covered up with fish. After that, I found myself looking for more of the same. So what have you guys found to be good enough that you don't even have to hook a fish to know it'll be good?

Also, any advice you can give when searching a new area would be appreciated. Once my arms couldn't take anymore jigging or AJ's yesterday, I started checking coord's and bottom fishing a few spots given to me by a friend. That went well but not knowing or understanding exactly what I was looking for was a little frustrating.

Really just knowing general information on Fish that you are looking for . It helps to study fish species to know what and where they will be , I'm talking about knowing water depth that each type will be in,! for exanple snapper are usally in water less than 150' and Jack are above any of the other stuff you see on you screen , Bottom drellers , grouper bee liner , etc.
You got to know you fish !!!
