Default Sank a reef on Friday!!!

Here a few pictures of a reef me and jake (bayougrande) built and sank.....Excited to see how it does. I'm no stranger to deploying reefs but this is the first one we've ever welded up. It was just scrap steel pipe and a little angle. Actually went through the permitting process and Brad Bane and Robert Turpin were great to work with.....I found out this was the first permit of 2013 and there were NONE applied for in 2012!!!....I dunno if people are just saying screw it and not getting them permitted or just aren't doing it. Either way we all know it's important to do. Even with high fuel prices and limited season hopefully people will continue to deploy reefs.....What do y'all think of the design???....Think it will produce?? I do.
Thanks
Miles

It's like the saying in the movie. If you build it they will come. Good job and good luck. Remember to give it a good year to produce before fishing it.

Looks good. That should make some fish next season but the longer it sits, the better it gets.
