Default Bottom pics of Timber Holes

Our first run out to the Timber Holes was a productive one. BIG lobsters and lots of fish.

Here are some topo maps of the spots we visited. We dove the three hard bottom structures rising up in the middle of the pictures. You can click on the images to see slightly larger versions.

It was an old ancient timber cypress forest when the sea levels were lower. Supposedly there are some areas where there are holes where it looks like there should be a tree stump there.

There is another post somewhere on here about the underwater forest off Alabama's coast.

That makes sense. I know that the edge used to be the coastline thousands of years ago. I would love to see some video of the timber holes and this Alabama underwater forest that you mentioned.

There is video of the Alabama spot floating around the internet. I think a WKRG reporter did the video and story. If you do a search on you tube you'll probably find it. He didn't reveal the location other than to say about 10 miles in the gulf south of Mobile bay

Yeah, it is a cool video. I have some areas identified to check with side-scan sonar next time I am out that way. If I find the stumps, I'll post the pics.

I've hit a hole out there once or twice, man it was relentless!

There are circular holes in the top of many limestone formations out there. However, I haven't found any timber yet.
