Exploring the Wrecks

By Brenton Roberts

Not only is there a great opportunity to dive natural reefs around Florida, but there is also an abundance of artificial wrecks to be explored. This gives anglers a view “beyond the sonar” of these large vessels and how fish use them to their advantage. Florida Sportsman member michael.barnette shared his recent wreck dives off of Pompano Beach. Not only do the fish adapt to these ships, you can see the how the sea fans and other reef life has made it their home as well.

Florida Sportsman offers GPS coordinates to many of these artificial reefs throughout the state on the Florida Sportsman Regional Charts.
