Don't know about the sound, however there's two barges in the bay between Eglin and the Destin pass, the bay cones and several things folks have dump near there. Most of the wrecks shown on the charts have decayed or are buried. There is also the target ship east of the mid bay bridge, it's marked by a lighted buoy and the rudder quadrant still sticks out of the water.

There are tons of reefs in the sound...they are call docks! The sound between Destin and Navarre is really too shallow to hold anything worth while when you can catch the same things on the tons of docks around.

The closer you get to Destin Pass some reefs wouldnt be bad for mangrove snapper but for some reason those mangroves arent as thick as you near Navarre. But its not just as simple (or legal) to just toss out a reef and fish it!

yeah i have a dock where i live but i was thinking of dropping something in some deeper water..maybe the channel? theres even some deeper water i can hit from my dock..what do u think about that? the channel seems like it would be better...slowly drop stuff to create a nice reef? not sure what to drop..big rocks, christmas trees..etc? i would never do anything to hurt the enviroment which is why i am doing research...and im not trying to break the law just make a small fishing spot..i saw on older post the legal aspect of it and i assume thats so people dont dump something that could hurt the enviroment?

The channel is NOT a place where its legal to drop something. Thats like dropping off your old couch in the middle of 98. The channel is there so boats can navigate safely and it would not be legal to drop anything.

Heck Im sure its illegal to put a reef anywhere in the sound. I wouldnt advocate doing anything illegal but if you really had to put in a reef, just make it around your dock. The best thing you could probably do if you dont already have one is to get a nice dock light or perhaps on of those submersible ones.

Go a couple of blocks from any WalMart and help'em out by picking a few stray carts--and find a new parking spot for them out of traffic areas,
