Default Orinsky

Been out of touch for awhile and haven't fished offshore lately. I'm dying to know what the general opinion for the Orinsky reef is.

Orinksky huh? never heard of that one. but as for the ORISKANY, it is located at 30 degrees 2 minutes 36 seconds north latitude, 87 degrees 0 minutes 24 seconds west longitude. The uppermost structure is located at 30 degrees 2 minutes 33.3 seconds north latitude, 87 degrees 0 minutes 23.8 seconds west longitude.





whoops i read your question wrong. i thought you were looking for the coordinates. from everything ive heard from buddies diving it, is is really starting to get loaded up with fish. i cant wait to dive it next summer. i personally wish it had been placed in about 600 plus feet of water, but that's just me. do a forum search on "oriskany" and you will come across TONS of old, helpful threads.

You read it wrong, because you were too busy trying to bust the guy's balls for spelling it wrong. You know what he meant, so there was no need to post your original comment.

And you are too busy busting his balls about busting the original poster's balls to add anything positive to the thread.:letsdrink

To answer the original question. Yes the Oriskany is starting to hold more and more fish. It is a big reef. Many people report catching fish on the sand to the sides of the ship and off the bow. During the summer months the superstructure area usually has about 6+ dive boatson it. But fishing off to the side or over the bow I am toldis some decent fishing.

I read on a local dive site that the wreck shifted and now the superstructure is below "safe" diving depths? Any news on that?

Everything is about 8-10 feet deeper now I believe. The flight deck was at about 135 before the ship shifted/settled a bit. The super structure is still well within reach.

I dove it a few months ago before the storm. There were fish everywhere on that wreck. Also there was a fishing boat around the bow and they were doing real well. Everytime I looked their way it seemed they had a fish. Here are some pics from that dive.
