These are under water rigs, there is nothing on the surface at all. basicially lots of bottom structure, lots of sharp objects that will cut you off, so be careful. but also lots of jacks, grouper, and snapper........sharks too

Default Rigs

Those two rigs you are asking about are both submerged cut off rigs that have been dropped just outside the pass, maybe 15-20 miles. If you're looking to run to any standing oil rigs you're going run at least 50 or 60 miles. I might be off a little on those numbers but I know I'm close.

You're going to have to make a 100 mile run at least to get to some standing oil rigs out of Destin Pass.

If you go that far you might as well fishing the drop off. You will be real close within a few miles from edge and nipple

i appreciate the info I know they are submerge youtube is a great thing . I was just wondering if anybody has been out there recently and if it is worth it . i have never fished it . i figured there would be amberjack there but didnt know if trolling was any good or if you can try to pull in a grouper.

Monster barracuda out there. Caught one around 5 foot and about 50 lbs. lots of under sized amberjack. Fish with BIG live bait. Keep a trigger fish rig on the bottom to try to get some big ruby reds. Also caught a nice cobia while jigging. My trip was about 10 days ago.
Everything is out there. The water is around 85 degrees.
