Default Deep spots in Pensacola Bay?

What are the deepest spots in Pensacola Bay? I like to fish inshore and was wondering what the deepest spots in Pensacola Bay are and alos do they hold Grouper and Snapper. I have heard that there are some inshore wrecks and I was just wondering in how deep of water they are in. Thanks for any input.-Ryan

I just started fishing the bay last year and only have been from the pass to ina few miles. The deepest I have seen is around 60' and the ledges are very steep. I have not caught a grouper or snapper in the bay but there are post from time to time.

There are places in the bays and ICW that hold these bottom dwellers. If you have a bottom machine pay close attention to any structure orledges. Most of theholes are in from 20 to 50 feet of water.

I've caught a red snapper and a gag grouper in the bay, and I hear the grouper are doing well recently in the bay from some local guides.

I think the deepest point is in the turning basin off of NSA. Probably 50-60'

I'm not new to the area but just started inspired fishing and still like bottom fishing. I would like to find the deep holes in Pensacola bay. Would any of you care to let a newbie know where I could kind some of deeper holes? I know that a lot of fisherman will not share them because they don't care for to many people being in there honey hole. However, it's Christman and help in this area you help save years of looking for them. Robinsons

No arrows saying "Fish Here" but it does give you the general topography.

Looking over this chart, I didn't realize the water got deep so quickly around the end of Ft. Pickens. Looks like a good place to try.
