the us corp of engineers sent me the following GPS coordinates for rock piles along the northern end of poplar is. keep in mind rocks were placed their in 1999 for a fish habitat.

i would say the Feds to include the USCG and army corp. of engineers have been very helpful and timely to fulfilling my request.

WIld Bill, thanks! So many places to fish.....

Okay, full disclosure. I've been fishing those rocks on and off all summer. They occasionally hold fish, but there are other places just as good and a whole lot safer. As you can see by those GPS numbers, there's a lot of rocks in there and I bet there are even others that aren't included. I'm not kidding when I say it's a dangerous spot to fish. Just like Whalen posted in the other thread, I've hit them too, although fortunately no damage. The current over them can change quickly and the wind whirls around the point and will push you on them in a heartbeat. Somebody might remember this picture I posted in a fishing report last spring when the tide was very low. As you can see, there is only a couple of rocks visible even then but the swirls and eddies tell you there's a lot more there.

Thanks for the numbers.

Shawn... you reported in your spring report that those rock piles didn't hold any fish at the time. Has that changed some lately?

Thanks for the numbers. It's really a safety thing. Skip mention these hazards in another post and they seem to keep popping up.

Better to let folks know about an unmarked hazard than to have their day ruined by a bent prop ... and yours cut short cuz you towed them back to port.

Holy sh1t!!!!

Did you ask them to run some bouys out there!?

Thanks to all for this info...

I don't consider myself a very lucky person, but I obviously was a couple of weeks ago...waiting out a tide change we decided to do a little exploring closer to the Island. Not being familiar with that shore line, I thought I was keeping a safe distance 50-100 off shore. I never saw those rocks, but I couldn't have missed them by much around that N point.

That far from shore, that close to the surface, intentionally placed there AND NOT MARKED! Yea, that sounds like a great idea....
