New reef restoration

Postby chris oak » April 6th, 2021, 2:30 pm

About a year or so ago, there was a big barge not too far from trump offloading rock. The story is a bit long but you can see the growth that already happened within that year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NV2-9I- ... 8c6zzFM2Pg

Anyone ever dove KOU rock? Is it open to fishing? On a related note, does anyone know how to get that kind of map/layer?

I dove the kou on scuba once its a deeper dive starting about 60' to about 100'. It's pretty wild, there's giant boulders scattered around with reef fish around them. The current can start ripping so you have to be careful if you are on tank because you will have to make a deco stop, I did mine on the boat anchor chain and vis was pretty bad.

Google earth used to have an underwater feature, but I forgot how to access it.

I've dove the KOU on tanks as well. Pulled some solid daytime bugs off it. It's one of Alan Johnson's local stops for seabass as well.

Can't wait to dive the new ones for bugs although I'm sure they will trap the hell out of it like they do everything else on this side.

That sounds pretty awesome. Potential yellowtail spot assuming the vis is good?

Possibly but I think it would just be a off chance. The rocks aren't stacked like a big reef, they are scattered. No fin bait except probably blacksmith but I didn't see any.

Don't know what KOU stands for Ryan.
