Default Bay wreck "Rhoda" with GPS numbers

Catch a big one for me!

P.S. The forum system reduced the image size a lot. It gets a bit bigger when you click on the image. Send me a PM with your email address, if you would like a larger image.

WhackUmStackUm, I'm surprised your not out there looking for; unless you already are or have, if exists, the 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc.. de Luna shipwrecks just east of Bayou Texar where the other 2 shipwrecks are. If more exist they are gonna have to be on the Pensacola Side of the bay. Being that's the side the other two sunk on. More than likely the expedition reused a lot of the material from the ships that were destroyed, but then again maybe not.

Hey whack 'em, there also is a large 8 ft. X 6 Ft. anchor approx 1/2 mile north and 1/4 mile east I used to dive. I was an old bay scruber in the day. If you want to get together and run some old land ranges for those spots I would like to guide you. If its not too cold I'll bounce dive 'em for verifacation. They used to make lots of grouper.

Interesting. I did not know about the other de Luna wrecks.

Sure. Let's get together when it warms up a bit.
