Default Anyway to put reefs in the bay?

Is there a legal way to get permits to put reefs in the bay? I rarely (read, 1 or 2 times a year) fish the gulf, boats just not big enough for it, and would like to have the ability to build my own structure somewhere

Those don't work on foggy nights...but the thermal FLIR gear will catch your illegal bay reef dumping butt in no time.

I'm sure there are PLENTY of ways to do it though using all the technology we have today...like radar, night vision, thermal scopes, gps, etc.

We were north of East Pass one night in highschool, won't comment on exactly what we were doing, but right about when we were ready to "put it in" a boat with flashing lights came flying up to us. After we shat ourselves, we realized it was SeaTow thinking we were broke down! Chose a different location, ended up being one heck of a catfish spot and a pretty good story!

I'm not sure which "put it in" you're talking about, but either way sounds fun!

Flguy, different materials decompose with certain byproducts, most of the byproducts are not desirable for the water.

I'm aware of that, it just doesn't make sense why we can get permits for the gulf, but not the bay
