Has anyone been to this reef? I tried to find it saturday but no luck, nothing but sand and sand sharks. The waves were long rollers for me so we went to the bay, that's when the fog rolled in. I guess I was lucky cause I don't have radar but a good GPS.

Anyway, any tips for finding these reefs? My fishfinder is not the best but I would expect it to pick up an AR..

BB -- The reef is a rather large area. You can get the boundries for NJ artificial reefs at the NJDEP website: http://www.state.nj.us/dep/fgw/refloc00.htm
and there are pictures and a description of the various vessels that were sunk at the GSN at this website: http://www.njscuba.net/reefs/chart_06_gsn.html.

The book with the waypoints is only $15, supports the reef program, and includes laminated pages of each reef site with the wreck locations, which is great when you want to see which of the wrecks are closest to you. It can be ordered from the NJDEP website: http://www.njscuba.net/reefs/association.html

You can't miss it. 3 miles out about 110 or so, look for all the pot markers. Much of the area is made up of reef balls, you might not mark them on your machine. There's usually boats in the area.

My largest fluke are always off shore of the reef, usually between the reef and range buoy. take a heading of 115 degrees and reef is approx 3 miles with range buoy at 4-4.5 mile mark. great bottom structure along there, I believe reef sits in 55-60 ft of water.
