"Pilings" in lower matacumbe

Recommended Posts

They are locally called the "Coffins" and hold a multitude of fish including Green Jack, Mangrove Snapper, Tarpon, XL Jewfish, Permit, huge Barracuda, small Grouper and Snook. Caution should used when fishing that area due to submerged structure  on the south end and it can sometimes be tricky to anchor there due to the strong currents.

They were part of Flagler's railroad that got wiped out by a hurricane I think in 1928.

Labor Day hurricane of 1935

The Hurricane Memorial in Islamorada is pretty interesting for just a few minutes visit. Right across US1 from the fire station.

How do we avoid the submerged structure?  How far away is it from visible ones?

Thank You George! That is a great link.  We do call them the Coffins and they are often mistaken as having been part of the Flagler Railroad. Have have caught many Tarpon within sight of those.
