Default March 2019 coop find

Dropped my go pro on another run over. Looks like black snapper or grouper?

How deep was it? The color is gone at that depth, unless the water is dirty.

This is 70ish.

And a question. How do you know when the structure is directly under the boat short of getting camera stuck?

Good electronics. I can usually stop directly over a coop/wreck, or within a few feet. It's just a matter of time before I loose the gopro, and have to call in a diving friend to retrieve it.
Once on the American Spirit, I had the gopro deployed and was fishing at the same time. Capt. Green saw my gopro rod bend over, he yanked it into reverse and backed away a few feet. Later, video showed it hanging up in the wreck. Will post video if I can locate it.

Update; found it!

So the good electronics has a narrow beam better than 200 kHz? Just trying to understand.
Here's video of 70' for the color. Green is starting to show.

My main bottom machine is a Furuno 585 with a thru hull 1k transducer. It stays on 200 khz in under 400' of water. Easy to get right up on top of a wreck. Minn Kota holds the boat still, we often catch the wreck.

You could try a red filter? We used one 24/7 for diving videos.

It doesn't work as well as the pictures show but it does explain it somewhat

the 3 Major types of fish in this video are Trigger (obviously) Red Snapper (silver ones) and Black Snapper.
No grouper that I could see and I watched it pretty closely
