Yes you have to get a permit for a private wreck.

No you do not have to have proof of purchase so to speak. Just a permit to dump said reef.

If you are asking what I think you are asking the only thing "private" on a reef you get permited and deployed is the numbers. If someone happens to find your "private" reef then that is just a chance you take. You can't tell the person that found it to leave cause it is yours, can't put up a no trespassing sign and so forth. Even though you paid to build it or purcahse it and have it permitted and deployed once it hits the Gluf floor it is technically fair game.

Private is the wrong term, more like unpublished reefs.

Like Ryan said, once it's down, it's anybody's to find -- and fish. And that's a good reason for a strong bottom machine and to always be watching the screen. You'd be amazed at how many spots you've passed up because you didn't know they were there.

What Ryan said. No such thing as a private reef. Just a reef you paid for or made and dropped, with unpublished numbers. Fair game. Don' let anyone ever bully you of a spot you find because it's "theres"
