Default Pics / Vids of a couple of reefs I deployed a year ago

Went out today and checked on a couple of reefs that I had deployed last year. I had posted pics and videos of these reefs a while back but I just cheked and the links are broke. I guess they go lost in the forum switchover. Oh well.

The first two pics are of a set of five steel tables with chain link fencing that has been down 12 months. The other picture is a rebar reef that has been down 14 months. Both are in 85-90ft of water. Since fishing is still closed where they sit, we just bounced them to see if anything was there yet. There is definately some life on them. No sign of oil either.

The bonus is I also figured out the white balance on my camera so the pics look way better than last time I was there. The down side is I only got a few pics and two videos, still I thought I would share. Oh and I still need to work on holding the camera steady.




Below are videos of the same reefs.

Can you hold the camera a little more steady?...

Kidding... COOL video.

Seems the chain link attracts more bait and/or juvies.

Maybe only one or two keepers on each though.

Thanks,

Jim

You can't get much better vis. Beautiful. Your rebar looks like a nice frame. You may want to try bulking it up with more fence material, stuff inside it,etc. Density,density,density.

Can you swim down there with my bait for me? I am sick of the little ones getting it.
