Default Dive Video: Jor Patti Barge

I took my kids out to the new Joe Patti Reef today. Here is what it looks like on the bottom.

Nice video. Good to see the a lot of small fish. That means soon there will be some big ones too. Time to get my gear wet, been dry too long.

More like things to get your line tangle up in when fishing that wreck! Fishing are going run around them and there goes a lot of tackle and money so be ready to loose some tackle when the fish show up. all that stuff is pretty but will make a angler very upset when fishing Joe Patty art covered wreck!

I believe the barge is more of a dive site for recreational divers. Shallow and safe.

Yes, they didn't put all the signs on there for fishermen. It's something to look at underwater. This area lacks in good shallow water sites to dive. There are plenty of other public fishing sites that are better suited for fishing. This thing will definately snag some tackle. So I would advise that divers make sure that their knives are sharp to cut the mono off them while down there.

This reef has such clearly defined edges, it should be a piece of cake to work the fringes of the site. That's where the keeper fish will be anyway. If you work the fringe, 10-20 feet offsite, you will avoid entanglement, and catch better fish. The real trick is going to be not losing an anchor, for most folks, who will run up on the published numbers and drop the hook. It's going to be sad to see the artwork get wrecked by careless anchoring. Just my $0.02.

Nice work, WhackUm. I think those large deck holes are gonna surprise someone soon, when they drop in and find a big Goliath grouper under there. Fun stuff.
