<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">Wish I could help you out but I haven?t found any yet myself. I'll take a day every now and then and ride around watching the depth finder and marking any holes or structure. Slow going but really the only way I know of.

This is from a trip last spring - may have moved but since no storms have hit us think it should still be there ----As you head east past NAS, the ICW splits around Gulf Breeze, there is a red mark almost straight off that point- number 21i believe but may be wrong. about 50 yds from it - south - you wil find some decent bumps on the bottom - was told it was a large sailboat. Have pulled keeper sized snapper and grouper off it in the past - nothing trophy sized but defintely grillable --good luck brother.

My 2 cents start trolling Stretch 25 or any other deep diving Baitfrom the Red Bouy in front of the Old CG Station to the Pass about 75 to 100 yards from shore I always go with the tide,There is alot of deep holes along Fort Pickens and Hold alot of Structure have picked up some nice one's doing this plus you can get some Bull reds at the same time Hope this might Help!!! Good Luck!!!!!!

I caught a keeper grouper while slow trolling a live menhaden in front of the base. I was in a john boat and have no idea how I caught it- no machine to mark bottom. But, I caught another keeper with Captain Wes trolling stretch 25's. They should be there- just have to luck into one.
