Gulf County GPS Numbers

GPS Coordinates >Panhandle > Gulf

Fishing & Dive Sites memory card from florida go fishingGulf County has, in addition to artificial reefs deployed by FWC, Mexico Beach Artificial Reef Association (MBARA) and dozens of shipwrecks, natural reefs just a few miles offshore in 80 to 100 feet of water providing even more structure to fish. St Joseph Bay is a popular fishing destination. Many in Gulf County will venture into Bay County south east of Panama City which has been called the second most popular area for fishing and diving in the state due to the abundance of reef sites, the clarity of the water, and the big fish that inhabit these sites. IMPORTANT: We have had reports recently that many artificial reef sites in Gulf County are gone or dispersed, frustrating anglers trying to find structure. Most sites on this list were laid in the the 1990's and from storm activity or the effects of time, these sites may be gone.
