Evaluation

*Average:    3.80
I dove this site in early summer. The attraction is the EroJacks, jacks like the child's toy but 4 feet tall and made of concrete. There are hundreds of jacks piled in a long groin/jetty running perpendicular to shore. There are quite a lot of small fish and inverts that live inside the reef. I saw a large Tarpon there and a variety of small and school fish. I was there right before the Sport Season and saw several poached lobster shells, as well. The jacks run a few hundred feet our from shore. Find the reef by looking for the single jack on shore. The reef is straight out from it. Offshore, the reef terminates at the first natural reef line (parallel to shore). It's nothing to write home about, but once you're there you may as well check it out if you have the air time (you will). The reefs are less than 20 feet deep. I was there on a good day with 25 feet viz. Another guy there shot a Spanish mackerel - I was not hunting this day.
