drag the cursor over the reefs and read the #ss on the left....
change the #s to DMS
that is minutes and seconds which is easier......

the end of that sewer line is good too.....
and it doesn't show it, but the yellow buoy off
natural bridges is a good drift....
start north at the kelp beds and drift just past the buoy...
50yds past the buoy, pick up and start it again....
maptech doesn't show it buy there are about 4/5 small
reefs from the kelp beds to the end of the sewer line...
look for birds or the water color change and watch the scope...
they are really good and hold some nice fish.....
that dog bone reef to the south a bit, what ever the tide is
if its coming in, work the south side and going out the north...
it has good fish too.......
watch the swell forecast for the weekend,
today we got our 1st NW swell and its like 8ft+.....
and is expected to last thur sat....
so seasick meds might be the call......
good luck..
