Default Alabama Alps

Doing some searching for coordinates to Yellow Gravel I ran across info on the Alabama Alps. Anyone familiar with this area and know how far of a run it is from P-Cola pass. Thanks guys, just trying to find some locations for Billfishing this summer.

Alabama Alps are part of the geographic feature known as the "Pinnacles". They start some 44 nm southwest of Orange Beach and extend further west/southwest another 15-20nm. Great bottom fishing especially during the winter months.

Yes that is correct, the coords I listed are for the square waypoint marker on the map.

I loaded up a demo map of the Alps if you'd like toplay around. Depths are displayed on the contour lines at 5 meter intervals. Coords are reportedfor each location that you click.

double click to zoom. Click + drag to pan the map.
