fort myers beach reefs

looking to go spearfishing off fort myers beach. have a boat but no gps. are there any reefs near that area that can be found without a gps. may reef, sanibel reef, gh reef? are any of these marked by bouys that can be found with only a compass? thanks in advanced for any replies

here's an idea, take 2 minutes to type out a decent answer and help a brother out. or does it make you feel better to belittle someone for trying something new? be nice or go home.

i know ppl who dont use gps and go out H&L fishing and find the same holes every time they go out. if ur within a couple miles of shore, you can use the landmarks to help. its not as easy, but do-able.

it might be better to look into buying a handheld gps off of e-bay or craigslist. makes things much safer and easier.
