Back Country Wrecks

Recommended Posts

I know this is a long shot but is there anyone that would be willing to share any numbers for structure/wrecks on the gulf side in the lower keys (bahia honda to like sugarloaf) not trying to go commercial fish out there or anything just for when the wind is coming out of the south I would like to have an alternative to the Atlantic side.

The Gulf side stuff is very hard to get help with. The commercial trap guys and some local guides know them all but are not talking. There are a few public but farther south. This time of year the Spanish Mackerel  are around on the Gulf side. Troll and chum to locate them.

Yeah I know a couple people that spend time out there but they make there living out there and definitely don't want to share. I noticed the public wrecks on my navionics but as you said most are farther south. I know there are several plane and medium size boat wrecks in that area as I used to have loran numbers for them but never converted them and they are gone with this last hurricane. Just hoping somebody is feeling generous.

Wow, haven't been to the Keys in 15 years, but when we use to go, we stayed in Islamorada. Someone turned us on to a plane wreck in the back country/Gulf. Use to catch some nice Mangro and keeper Grouper off that plane. Wish I still had the numbers.

Yep, we found a home made wreck in the Atlantic. Apparently someone remodeled a hotel or motel and deposited all the sinks, toilets and bath-tubs in a spot about mile off shore. We would spend all morning tickling lobsters out of that spot.
