Have you dove out of Naples, if so with what dive shop? Aren’t these artificial reefs 20 miles out to get good vis so the fish can see the bait. Up here it’s 5ft if that but this is where the Caloosahatchee comes in. I would hate to get reeled in and put on a wall of a rich guy in Naples ;-)

Flood came up with a plan to create 36 artificial reefs about 20 miles off-shore—it’s close enough for the average boater to get there and far enough for clearer water

"Not only is this going to ensure that the local fisherman have a supply of game fish to be able to catch, but it’s also going to give a reason for tourists to come down and catch divers ;-)

I seen this on the local news when it started. Figured it was bait for fishing rich guy tourist $$$
