Default 15, 18 mile rock coordinates

Hi all, hope your staying warm and looking forward to spring fishing,when I had the old boat I fished Youponreef AR440 ect but never ventured out too far from there,I always hear the 15 and 18 as well as the horseshoe mentioned, definately want to expand in the F233 this year, anybody care to share the numbers on a few of the popular spots, I've got a NOAA chart on wall but can't determine .

THANKS in advance.

Looking at a map, it appears 15-mile spans a pretty large area, in the grid between 33°35' and 33°40', and 78°10'and 78°15'.

Horseshoe appears to be around 33°30', between 77°50' & 77°55'.

Haven't found 18-mile on the map...

When I was at the Fisherman's Post school last February, several of the charter captains giving the lectures pointed us toward maps from Maps Unique (offshore-fishing-map.com), so I ordered one for the region surrounding Southport/OKI. It's amazing (to me at least) how much structure is out there.

I second maps unique. I bought a Pro Finders card from John. You can call him and tell him what you want and he will make you a custom card for your unit. It is a little pricey but you just install it and upload the way points in your system and your done. Check him out on www.prochipusa.com. My custom one he made for me has over 2600 way points from north topsail to murrells inlet. I just pick an area to fish and ride around to see whats there. Caught a 36lbs king this fall off oak island fishing a live bottom away from everybody I never knew was there.

Isn't a coordinate a fixed point? Where you're coming from is irrelevant.

Raybark is correct. There are a bunch of numbers for 15 Mile Rock. AR-450 marks the Southwest corner of the area.

For 18 Mile Rock I have 34º 03.260', 77º 27.540'

Be aware that many sources of numbers are old LORAN books bought from crew or captains of commercial or charter boats and then converted to GPS.
They are all a a great resource but don't expect..

1.That they will all be there
2.They will all be honeyholes
3.That dozens to hundreds+ of people have not bought the same numbers

You must be referring to some other site. We have never bought any "old LORAN books", nor converted LORAN numbers to GPS to use on the site. There very well may be some numbers that have been added over the years that were originally from LORAN numbers, but we do not buy them, nor do we convert them. Please get your facts straight.

As for your points. #1 could be true. Sure, wood rots, sand covers up, and storms move structure. It happens, but you will find 99% or more are spot on. That is also why this is a social site that allows members to comment and update these spots. There were over 60,000 spot updates with additional information such as descriptions, species, depth, and other info added to the spots last year. There were also tens of thousands of new spots added last year.

#2, of course. Who said every one of the 350,000+ fishing spots in the database are all honey holes? We certainly have never claimed that. Yes, there are a few named "honey hole", "gold mine", and "freight train", but we did not name them that. I can claim that we have the most fishing spots available, the best way to download them, the ease of customizing them, and for the best price. You can look to find a better source, but will only die tired.

#3, its more like thousands of people have bought the numbers, rather than dozens or hundreds. Been doing this for almost 7 years now. But we also are constantly adding new ones and updating old ones with more information. If you have a better source, I would certainly like to hear about it.
