Default Private reefs

You guys really have no respect for the hard working people that purchase,permit and deploy the private reefs that have brought our reef fish populations back from the future of more shortened seasons and lower bag limits. Instead of running your mouth about raping someone's investment why don't you consider that if you find it take a few fish and go on. Better than that why don't you help by getting off your pocket book and deploy some yourself so that you can at least know that you are contributing to the fishery. The way you are doing it you are what we in the reef building community call the scourges of our industry. Be part of the solution not adding to the tearing down of our fisheries!!

Capt. Mike, not trying to start an argument with you, but I re-looked at all the post. Who was advocating raping a spot and cleaning it out on here, other than the comments made towards me that they found my spots and were going to carpet bomb them? Those guys were just joking. Unless I missed something else.

I say if your lucky enough to find a good spot that someone else might have bought or dropped than catch the shit out of them. I can understand from the person that dropped the spots point of view that they would be pissed but when you drop a reef it's a risk you take.

I believe that if u find a good spot, mark it, fish it a few times and leave it alone till next year... odds are that you and the "owner" of the reef aren't the only two who know of it. If u "catch the shit out of them" u are depleting the reef of large fish and it will take much longer for the remaining resident fish to be large enough to keep. Catch a few, then move on. There are plenty of wrecks, just slow down and watch your bottom machine! Just my opinion...

Angry Reply of a user!!

Bigrick you are the epitome of what's wrong with with our sport. You sit back and watch everyone enhance our fisheries and then you get out there in your boat (I can only imagine what it is) and ride around like a true bandit to plunder what you can find. 15 years ago you would be labeled as a thief- that was when the people that fished out there had honor and respect for other fishermen and women.
What we all need to realize is that when idiots like bigrick become more prevalent than those of us that care for our sport and the fisheries and are willing to actually pay to be involved the resource is doomed. The fishing pressures will eradicate our resources. As for bigrick get off your pocket book and be part of what we have created not part of what will inevitably destroy it!!

30 years ago charter boats out of orange beach would run you off with a shotgun if you got to close to them while they were fishing a "privately" built spot.

Back then if a boat was heading south and running a course that would take them within a 1/2 mile of a boat fishing a "privately" built spot, common courtesy was to deviate from your course so as to give the boat fishing at minimum a 1/2 mile clearance so as not to interefere with the fishing going on.

I sorta of miss those days.

Cool

Wow!! Bout half derailed here!! The guy simply asked how!! Or did I miss something? I have only been in the area for a couple of years. I have fished and dove quite a few "public" spots. There a litteraly tons of them. It would be impossible to fish them all. So I have pulled up to an anchored up up boat and asked hows it going only to get cussed out or worse yet they say nothing at all and just stare you down!! Excuse me! just trying to be friendly! If you are going to get that uptight and worried about someone gettin on yur spot! Why dont you sell your boat and get some friggin golf clubs!!

Later

Man perspective gets lost quickly. First to the last post. If it's public(payed for by tax dollars or well published nat. bottom) then it's open to anyone at any time. Just use common boating courtesy. With today's technology anyone regularly bottom fishing should input the published public spots into the unit they're using and give room to anyone fishing a spot they don't have. As for those who would "run" on or "pick" off someone with their radar(which some charter boats took to), that's akin to showing up to a random BBQ, grabbing a beer, and asking when your burger will be done!!!
