Try this link...zoom into PC area and click on the dots for description and coordinates. I have found many good reefs to fish off of this tool...off of Gulf and Franklin counties.

PC trip

I went this past Saturday night on Captn Andersons 8 hr boat.....we killed them.

You cannot keep but 2 red snapper, I was catching them and giving them to folks who had not caught any.

66 on the boat and everybody left with fish. I saw some really big ones caught. #13 thru #26

I hung a stud and could do nothing with it.

10 to 12 miles out max

we were in 100 ft of water.

There is a large ship anchored up about the 10 mile mark, we were within close distance of it all night.

good luck.
