As far as the sound goes can I rely on the wrecks that have symbols on my lowrance hand held GPS for black fishing and striper structure?

Default Wreck question

Many new gps systems hold a number of fairly accurate wreck sites. However the numbers are not always exact due to NOA depth sounding equipment.

get out there now and start looking around..and if you encounter someone on an anchored boat yelling at you to leave-then he is most likely on a good piece.

That's funny but too many times I have just guessed and tried some random spot to not catch anything for an hour and have 10 boats anchor right right next to me.

Default your not alone

Hey Jets me too. The topic of Wrecks is a very delicate topic on this site. Its like stirring a hornets nest.

Default How I found my spots.

On slow summer days, I break out the trolling gear and troll around for blues, generally aiming for and criss crossing over wreck marks on the chart plotter. While doing this, I look at the depth sounder constantly. If I see a hump, I hit the mob button, and record the spot. I've found 5 or 6 nice mid sound humps that way, and they always hold blacks in Oct and Nov.

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.
