I remember years and years ago, seeing the "smoke stacks" or something that was right at the water line but the video makes it seem it's no where close now???

Those were the gun turrets Jason. Been a few boats rip their bottoms out on them. I remember 10-12 years ago a pretty good size charter got one and beached in the pass at Mcrea. Had some pictures of it for awhile. I'm sure someone else remembers better than I that can fill in the details.

The turrets are still at the water line. I fish it often. Loaded with bait and kings.

Depending on the tide the stacks are awash.

GREAT place for bait. And yes a King or 3 will hang out.

Round things awash are barbets where the gun turrets set into there is actually two of them the second one is 2 or 3 ft. under the surface to the NE. Two or three boats have hit the mass. The Entertainer was one of them. Jim did U misspell a word the d is close to the r ???
