So as far as a fishing report: I pulled crankbaits across them early summer and hooked two legal/small kings.

Default Man that site has been around a while!

When I finally got around to getting SCUBA certification in 1969(at my ex-wife's insistence) our first "open water dive" was the old Casino site. My wife and I left Rusty's and ran up there and were anchored when the rest of the class showed up. I'd already blown a tank when they got there. I used shore line ranges to find it because LORAN A would just get you to the area. I tried several piles and didn't see much of anything.

Back in the day, The Casino site was one of the few sites plotted on the chart in those days. Not very accurately plotted, either.

My favorite flounder spearing spot was the old pilings in about 20 feet a mile or so east of P'cola pass. In late December they were loaded with Sheepshead and Flounder.

If they'd do away with GPS for about 5 years, we'd have lots of fish again because most folks are too pussified to go out without dead nuts nav equipment.

Anyone know if this is a chained FAD or if it's a dive boat submerged anchor buoy? From the Video redlegs pointed to above.


If a Dive Boat Buoy - is there a process to get it permitted?



Thanks in advance - Stressless

That would be my guess; it's a very common practice to do so.

Peronally: I don't like chaining to those types of reef material since the chain rubbing back and forth can damage the life and the reef platter.

I guess #1 boat got fouled and cut the line and another boats anchor got fouled in the chain of #1s chain. Give me the numbers and I will check.

It plain a chain to the reef. You can see the rope loop ties to the chain later in the video at 2:43.

Feel free to check if you want. Numbers of the center of the reef I think, not sure where the "Small Casino reef pyramids" are other than this location.

Thanks but I doubt I will dive that area any time soon. Someone else might take a look and report
