Default Mayor Lane Gilchrist rubble

last Wednesday we dove the Lane Gilchrist using the numbers from the Escambia list... viz really sucked!!! however I was wondering
1. Are the published points are at the end ... middle or some where else on the pile...
2. What direction does the pile lie in?
3. How long is it?

Thanks!!

interested in this as well. We fished it last week and did good. Of course, that isn't hard to do.

If I remember correctly (which I could be wrong...this was back in December), when we went directly to the number from the county list there was still reef/rubble going out in the general east/west directions away from that point.

Again, I could be wrong and I'm sure some of the kayak guys and nearshore guys can really confirm its direction.

I fish this a lot in my small boat. The list says it's 8000tons of concrete, and I have no trouble finding it. I don't like punching numbers into my machine, so I just drove around and hit the MOB when I got to what I thought was the edge of the pile and pretty soon I had a nice picture of the reef. I learned this by fishing live bottom like Greens and 21 Hole. After I learned what it looked like, I could erase some of the MOBs to free up some memory in my GPS. I don't need the government to do everything for me- especially if I can do it myself- and besides, the the reef numbers list would be a hundred pages long!
Now when I go out and want to anchor up, I can put my anchor in the sand and drift back over the reef.
