Check your mail.
What size boat do you have?
Do you have any of the SG bridge span numbers?

How is the fishing around the sg bridge. I have always fished the cut, the surf, or the shrimp boat between st george and dog island.

I was referring to the bridge spans and rubble dropped about 12 miles offshore. It was from the old SG bridge. They should be producing by now.

Thanks I was wondering about the new bridge. The Atlantic beach bridge in NC is a great spot.

go to www.bigbendfishing.net and click on area charts- sorry about the multiple posts but i keep remembering different web sites

Hey 313, Thanks for the links to help out.
Can't you just post your numbers to make it easier. :huh:

i'm selling my boat - the majority of the #'s i used were public and some of the better ones that i found were very close to the public #'s-most public #s offshore are placed there for very good reasons- there close to proven sites- just look around a little while you are there, and keep your eye on the bottom machine and finger on the gps mob button!

I was just :stir:to many folks don't want to put in the time and fuel it takes to get good numbers. I don't mind helping out with a few numbers to get someone started.

What boat are you selling.

03-28-2008, 03:42 PM
03 cape horn offshore 19ft-its listed in the swap and sell-if you know of anyone in the market let me know-its like new- i've got it listed at nada average value and its way above avg.

I'm also heading off to St. George for vacation in July. We'll be talking our boat with us to do some off-shore fishing. To those who have sent some numbers via PM's, any chance you could extend your kindness to another GON'er and PM 'em to me as well? :type:

I'll save ya a grouper fillet!


03-30-2008, 08:51 PM
Dennis, send me your email address. what boat you are fishing and where you are from.
I'm not sure if there will be any snapper or grouper left in the gulf per Roy Crabtree.
Don't try to pass off any of those talapia (ditch fish) fillets as grouper for payment. I'll be checking for worms to make sure it's the genuine article.

My goodness how things have changed. I can remember that when I used to ask for numbers, I was told to plug in TOW...Time on Water :biggrin2:

03-31-2008, 12:27 PM
Most of the numbers I give out are from the bridge. There are around 100 numbers for spans and rubble. If you look at the list of public numbers for them they only show the corners.
I'll help out a newbe or my fellow Ga fisherman. I was lucky enough to have others help me and I just want to return the favor. Also my boat is in the shop and you may want me to ride with you to use some non public numbers. I have some good ones.

Just 1 More

relic you get on my boat anytime you need. i sure do apprecaite all the help you and others have givin me. i have put time in offshore and i have found 2 things the tower and 1 spot that had about 20 divers on it.

04-01-2008, 09:33 AM
Dave, the towers can be a good place to pick up some large AJ's. As far as catching divers use a heavy jig. I don't know the limit but maybe someone can give us more info on that.
