Default The "Nipple" and "Elbow".......

where are these located in the gulf? I have seen some say due south of Pensacola Pass. Is it where the Gulf starts getting drastically deeper? I can see on Google Earth where is looks to drop off dramatically about 60 miles out. Just trying to educate myself. Never been to the Nipple or Elbow and probably will not go anytime soon. I'm just curious. Thanks!!

Yes, exactly. They are bottom features where deepwater canyons come up to the contental shelfs.. on the 50, 100, and 200 fathom curves respectively

I have a chart on my wall. The tackle shops carry them also.
