You guys really have no respect for the hard working people that purchase,permit and deploy the private reefs that have brought our reef fish populations back from the future of more shortened seasons and lower bag limits. Instead of running your mouth about raping someone's investment why don't you consider that if you find it take a few fish and go on. Better than that why don't you help by getting off your pocket book and deploy some yourself so that you can at least know that you are contributing to the fishery. The way you are doing it you are what we in the reef building community call the scourges of our industry. Be part of the solution not adding to the tearing down of our fisheries!!:thumbdown::thumbdown::thumbdown:
30 years ago charter boats out of orange beach would run you off with a shotgun if you got to close to them while they were fishing a "privately" built spot.Bigrick you are the epitome of what's wrong with with our sport. You sit back and watch everyone enhance our fisheries and then you get out there in your boat (I can only imagine what it is) and ride around like a true bandit to plunder what you can find. 15 years ago you would be labeled as a thief- that was when the people that fished out there had honor and respect for other fishermen and women.
are you fukin joking? your buddy needs to have his head examined, and is going to end up in jail if he thinks he can shoot a weapon at another boat,i understand what markw is saying here haha my buddy has shot at quite a few boats that came too close to our spots i thought he was insane but the guys on the other boat were being complete idiots on the radio and pissed off quite a few captains that day. captain mike stand up for what is rightfully yours i respect that alot as a fellow fisherman i dont go offshore alot but i know how it is when someone raids your honey holes

What we all need to realize is that when idiots like bigrick become more prevalent than those of us that care for our sport and the fisheries and are willing to actually pay to be involved the resource is doomed. The fishing pressures will eradicate our resources. As for bigrick get off your pocket book and be part of what we have created not part of what will inevitably destroy it!!
WhY would you want to invest hundreds of dollars in a reef when someone will find it and fish the s?;t out of it and then tell you that you don't own that spot?i agree fishing is supposed to be fun i grew up doing it and still continuously fish , abiding by laws that were set forth both inland and offshore. i cant help i got on the wrong boat shit happens.. he paid for what he has done so it doesn't even matter anymore god takes care of everything in time and he's tasting all the carma for being a phsycho over a spot. im curious how much does a pyramid reef cost? i thought about investing my money towards something that i love and be part of the solution in helping restore our reefs.
i just want to help build the structural habitat bigger than what it is so we have more places to fish in the future and the fish populations will grow bigger each year if people abide by limits and fishing regs. i love the water as much as all of you and i dont mind contributing to a better future
