When you read or hear the term “wreck fishing”, you may think of the old days of swashbuckling pirates. The modern interpretation of wreck fishing includes not only shipwrecks but also artificial reefs and rough bottom fishing area.
With wreck fishing, perhaps the toughest part is indeed finding a structure to fish at. This requires taking the time to thoroughly research which areas have the best potential for fish. Thankfully, there are numerous resources to help you find the ideal spots, especially when it comes to artificial reefs.
Finding wrecks can be a little tricky, but it does yield great rewards provided you’re patient enough. A GPS is essential to help pinpoint the correct location. Modern GPS units have become highly accurate within about three to five meters, making it much easier to find wrecks and reefs without being too far off.
South Florida abounds in wreck fishing opportunities for anglers of all skill levels. Some of the fish you may come across or catch include mackerel, sea bass, grouper, and more. Jig fishing, live bait, and chicken rigs are also effective in finding fish hanging out near wrecks.
