Default ArtificiAl reefs--chicken coops, etc

Hello everyone,

I took some time off from the forum as I was traveling and have not been fishing much. I just logged on and found my inbox was full with inquiries about putting out reef materials and chicken coups.

The answer is yes we are still running loads. We have coops and concrete materials. Still running about 450 a spot for two coops. Sorry to those to whom I did not provide a timely response.

Default coop measurements

Each coop is 48" wide and 52" tall and 8' long-has five shelves in it and weighs 750 lbs. with the fiberglass shelves in it. Make your reefs 2 coops fastened together 1 coop isn't enough weight for a descent reef and 2 coops fastened together won't tumble in a bad (cyclonic storm). The tree hugging state of Florida makes you remove the shelves which is pure ignorance as the shelves are locked in the structure and the triggerfish love the fiberglass!

Fyi. Keep in mind that's 750lbs, not 450. And they aren't easy to handle. You've got to have a way to load em. But I disagree on the single coup. For the everyday guy, 1 coup will produce nicely. But $450 for a double aint bad. If I had my choice I'd rather have twice the spots spread out in different depths than just a couple doubles. If possible I also like them them on their side rather than on their back. That way when I dive the shelves are parallel with the bottom. Just my preference. And I wouldn't put them on your boat if that's what you're thinking.
