Default Private reef for sale

I had an artificial reef made by Reefmaker dropped for my personal use a little over a year ago. The reef is approx 30 miles south of Perdido Pass. I am the ONLY person who knows the coordinates. Last season, I fished it twice and it is holding fish already. I could barely get my bait down to it before a fish was on the line.

Anyway, I had to sell my boat that was stored at Zekes. I live in LA and I have no way to ever use this reef again. I am looking to sell the coordinates. Please make an offer if you are interested.

I'll sponsor you but you must post a price per forum rules. Good luck, shouldn't take long to sell.

Sorry. Didn't realize a price was required. I paid over 1000.00 for deployment . How about $800.00.

Reef is at a depth of 150 ft. It is about 1 hours from Perdido Pass. I'm not sure how far from Pensacola Pass.

It is a concrete pyramid. I think it is called a Florida Special. There is also a Fish Attraction Device extending vertically 50 ft. up from the top of the pyramid

What is the process to verify the reef and make the purchase?

Unfortunately, there is no way for me to verify. As per the instructions when I had it dropped, I sent money and got coordinates in the mail. I can tell you that I have been to it 3 times and found it easily every time and I am by no means a professional navigator/boat captain.

I've gotten some requests for more information on this reef.

First, it was deployed after the gulf oil spill. It was set up to go before that and then the Gulf was closed for a few months delaying deployment. As soon as boats were allowed back out, the reef was deployed.

At this point, it has been down over a year. As I said in an earlier post, I went to it a total of 3 times last season. Each time I had a crew of 4 and we had our limit of red snapper very quickly. In fact, it was difficult to not pull up snapper. We also caught Amberjack and grouper.

I live in Louisiana. I am strictly a recreational fisherman. I owned a 28ft boat that made it to this reef with no problem. I no longer own this boat and I have no intention of buying another. This reef, if not sold, will just sit there holding fish.

As far as verification that the reef is really out there; I don't know what I can offer. If any of you have ever done this or know anyone who has, you will know that you don't get a receipt or any thing like that. I sent money to the Reefmaker and recieved a sheet of paper via certified mail with the coordinates of the reef. From that point on, I was on my own to find it. I did and I have found it all 3 times using my 1996 Furuno bottom machine. It is there.
