Default Closest biggest reef or wreck to fish in March

Hi Guys:

I am new to the forum but have been lurking around for months. We are pulling our Proline down in March. I saw the post where someone converted a ton of reefs and wreck cordinates.

My boat is only a 22 foot and we will be coming out of Pensacola. What are 4-6 good spots that are close. I obviosly would like to stay in as close as possible as we get our sea legs underneath us.

Thanks for all your help guys!

Rick

Wow that is amazing how many artificial reefs you guys have.

What do you guys like to fish better:

3 Barges
Blackwater Bridge
Pete Tide II
Soule Barge
Tug Deliverance
USS Massachusets This seems a little shallow to hold a ton of fish. Crazy close to the pass though.
TUG Slyvia I really like this one because of the depth.

Have any of you been to these wrecks lately???

good luck man, these guys don't like to give up the goods very often. You post once on here and when you go to fish that spot there will be 400 people on it, don't take offense just go try a few of them out. Since it is already loaded and everyone and their brother fishes it, the barges hold fish alright, its fished hard though.

I went to the blackwater bridge rubble a couple weeks ago and it is loaded with snapper although about every spot on your list will hold snapper.

If I had my choice of just those wrecks I would choose the blackwater bridge rubble as there is some good black snapper on the wreck as well.

The mass is not a good choice if you are not familiar with the waters as the cannons can be just under the water line on a high tide. I have some screen shots of the layouts for the wrecks on google earth but due to size limitations I cannot place it on the forum. PM me a email address and I can send them over.

Try some of the pyramid reefs put in close east of the pass around the three barges. Or go to the west to 1 of the four I-10 bridge rubble spots. They are about 10 miles but are big and easy to find. If you want a good list of the public spots go to http://www.myescambia.com/Bureaus/Co...cialReefs.html.

All of the above hold fish, all get hit pretty hard by fishermen/divers. The Mass hold TONS of fish........good place to get bait for bigger fish.
Three Barges are good for just about anything...but you have to get there by sunrise to get the best bite. You can catch fish on any of them, you will just have to hone your skills and don't assume the fish are dumb.....if you are not catching anything.....hide that hook in the bait, and use the lightest rig that you can get away with.
If you want to REALLY have some fun...go to MBT Divers, learn to dive, and get into spearfishing.....the fish are ALWAYS HUNGRY FOR STEEL!
I have some good footage of may of the local reefs on my website: www.firefishvideo.com . Good Luck!
