Default MBT Number Correction: Brass Wreck

For those who are maintaining a list of public spots, here is a correction. I was out there the other day side-scanning and diving on it.

BRASS WRECK

MBT's Number: 30 12.847 N 87 03.137 W

Fisheye's Number: 30 12.851 N 87 03.213 W

Distance from MBT's number to the wreck: 400 feet W (273)

To be honest, there wasn't much on it. A few grunts around the edges, and a few black snapper near the windless at the north end of the wreck. I picked up a couple of shovel nose lobsters and another guy took home a medium-sized flounder.

There was also a 5' sandbar shark that kept bugging us that day. I had to give him a jab in the side to make him keep his distance. He still kept his eye on us though. And I prefer to think of my flounder as "nice-sized," rather than "medium-sized."

had the privilege of diving the brass wreck in the 70s when only a couple of commercial fishermen had it on Loran A. He let me dive it but I had to give him the fish. Lots of big sow snapper, and the first time I was in a fish shooting gallery and came up empty handed. A comedy show of errors and equipment failures. But other than that, a memorable dive!

Brass wreck is still on my list of wrecks to dive. Are there ant brass pins left? I really want to add one to my collection of salvaged finds!

Yes there are hundreds of them (Brass rods). But they are round rods they are on the West side still electrosily welded to the rails so take a hack saw with you when you go. Oh (fish eye )I didn't know the Brass wreck was a public number. I guess it is now

IIRC, it's illegal to take anything off of a wreck that is 50 or more years old.
