Default Alabama Alps, Cat's Paw, etc...

I've been trying to find coordinates for the Alabama Alps, yellowtail, roughtongue, cat's paw, pinnacles, and saddle reefs, or any of the othernatural structures along the 40 fathom curvein that general vicinity (East of the Alps).If anyone has them, would you mind PM'ing them to me or posting them? The coordinates I found from NOAA were in a weird ass format that I was unable to use.

Thanks,

Bob

Bob,



Andy and I did some homework on those #'s a few years ago. We found that they were listed in decimal degrees, and your electronics read in degrees, minutes, seconds. So when you program them in you will be off using the DD's, try converting those numbers to D,M,S. and see if your successful in finding them. We have the #'s and have not spent much time fishing them and would always welcome some reports from the various spots as it covers a huge area.

Thanks for the reply. I found a conversion program online and a fellow forum member helped me out with some good numbers. I will post reports as soon as I get the new boat home and get my son born! Thanks again!

If you want to make sure the spots become totally worthless, post the coordinates on the internet. Otherwise, I would keep them to yourself.



I have some spots that made it onto the forum a few years ago. I don't even waste my time looking at them anymore. Every boat in Pensacola has them, and has fished them into nothing.

Howdy,

Pick up a Hilton's Chart at Outcast - these structures are identified there.

All the best,

Tom Hilton

I don't have the coordinates at work with me but here is a link to some bottom floor pictures that might further assist you.

Bellafishing,



Good luck to you. Those numbers cover a tremendous area in the gulf, and they are no secret to anyone with an elementary understanding of the GOM. You will find hundreds of way points within the greater regions described in the USGS survey or NOAA report that you reference. My personal experience has been that it would take a large effort from a single boat owner to ever cover or map this natural bottom structure, in addition, you have to have some savvy bottom fishers to produce in the depths that these spots lie. You don't have to work so hard to get a limit of snappers these days, and you know grouper fishing can be an all day affair. You will spend alot of fuel to narrow these areas down to their most productive features. I fully expect a personal message with numbers for every scamp, and gag you find. J/K, Best of luck.

These some numbers for the Alps that I stumbled across

29 15 215

88 20 430

Don;t know if they are accurate or not

I thinks it like 85 miles from Perdido Pass ( not precise )
