Any of you guys ever dove those A6 Intruders they sunk a few years ago ? We looked for them weekend before last to no avail.I also talked to another guy down there who said he could'nt find them either. Could they have moved in a storm? If I remember correctly, they did'nt sink very many.

Really dont know about your situation but last year they sunk an old plane I belive off of Bayport in 35 ft of water and of course now they cant find the dam thing. Probally picked up and moved from a big storm.

I went there a couple of weeks ago.We hung up with about a 60lb cobia on a ling jig while seabeast was diving. The cobia actualy jumped twice. That was the first time I ever saw a cobia jump. We didn't catch the cobia , something hit the line and cut it.

There are several clumps of them with most being 2 to 3 planes .A couple have landed on top of each other.There are several concrete junction boxes as well.There is a 54" SS Biller with a P/H down there too.Somebody lost it last year when a cob came back to life on his stringer.

They are pretty scattered. It's like landing on a pin. Sometimes you do, sometimes you don't. Goodluck.

We use them as a last resort when it's rough offshore in the summer.They hold nice genuines year round,but scattered.A good dive on the way in from offshore,cause most of the Bayliner/Regal crowd are gone by 3:00.PM me for some #s to crosscheck

Got a question 100days. Is most of the good fishing (close in)out of st aug. on those ledges around 35 miles and does it have a big profile. Have only dove there one time but the capt. didn't know about anything except blue water striking fish. May get a chance to dive some more there this season and if what I think is true I wont stop until 35 miles.:D

Bayliner/Regal crowd are gone by 3:00...ROTFLMFAO!!!

Bluegun,yes,yes,yes my brotha.Vey nice fishies at the 35 mile areas.Esp the true ledges.We have gotton limit of mangos and bugs in one dive.If you have a LORAN pm me I'll send some #s yo way.The published #s are good,but 30+ miles is a long way to find 5 boats fishing 1 ledge.Greyface,what else would I call'em?The non-fish catching crowd.We had a guy anchor in the sand next to us 150' or so away and tell us his GPS said the planes were under him.Right out of the Hotspots book.

Thanks 100days. I could use a couple (unpublished) #'s for st aug. This week we dove culverts and culverts and culverts for my first time in st. aug. I had a good time and got a few fish too:D A-men on the long ride just to play bumper boats.
