Default Natural Bottom question

See people talk about natural bottom. What exactly is that and how do you spot it on your bottom reader?

PS. Naturalbottoms.com is the top result in google. Although cloth diapers would keep people from using my head, that is not the information I was looking for.

Bottom that occurs naturally. Rocks, holes, nature's contour basically.

I asked this same question before and people posted some very helpful information on that thread. I would link to it but I'm on my phone.

If you can't find it, I'll try to post it later tonight.

This is natural bottom.....and It can be hard to spot. The best way to learn how to find it...is to go to some known - public numbers....and learn how your bottom machine displays the areas. Once you see it....you will be able to spot it in unknown areas. It has to be much harder for non-divers....as a lot of spots we would think were not very good by looking at the bottom machine....are actually really productive.

Thanks! Do natural bottoms occur before the edge / deep water say within 29 miles? Are their any public natural bottom spots that standout that I could research or find the numbers too?

This list is somewhat old now....but that is not always a bad thing (people tend to forget about the old spots.)

Lots of natural bottom south of the Liberty ship (Meeks) pensacola. Also smaller pieces North of the Liberty ship. Great pictures there firefish.
