I tried and I tried and I tried...
Questions about wrecks and numbers come up all the time. Both last Fall and the year before I made solid attempts at sharing wreck information. I and many other members posted some of the well known numbers for all to see and use. And even though those numbers are readily available from NOAA, Captn' Seagull Charts, Mapquest and many other sources, we were bashed and ridiculed for posting the information on the internet.
Last year we had such an incredible discussion going. It included details that included the history of many of the wrecks along with photos of how they look on our fishfinders, etc... I'm sad to say that the discussion was hijacked by a handful of members who think it is voodoo to post any numbers on the internet (even well known coordinates). Their protesting turned our productive and informative discussion into an all out war that was so heated that the entire thread had to be deleted.
So all I can say is that if you guys want to try it again, so be it. OneMoreDrift and I will do the best we can to try to weed out the naysayers and keep them from turning this discussion sour. I'm not saying that we should all post our "secret numbers" (if there is such a thing any more). All I am suggesting (for a third year in a row) is that some of our members are new to the Sound and they may not know the numbers for The Cows, Sound Reef, Hens & Chickens, etc... Even some of our most seasoned anglers may be interested in learning the location or how to fish a popular location that they never tried before because they never had the opportunity to hear about it.
