Default FL Keys-5600 GPS Waypoints

Check out my East Coast Numbers here!


FOR SALE- JUST IN TIME FOR LOBSTER SEASON!!: I am selling an extensive compilation of GPS coordinates from Key Largo all the way to the Tortugas. These files consist of numbers on both the Gulf and Atlantic side. Lobster holes, coral heads, wrecks, reefs and deep drop ledges/pinnacles. I have also taken the time to enter every public number available for each area. Quit wasting your valuable vacation time and gas money searching for spots. This information will allow you to maximize your fishing productivity while frequenting these areas.

There are shallow spots easily accessible by small boats as well as offshore numbers. These numbers are true GPS coordinates, not loran conversions.

These are proven spots for lobster, grouper, yellowtail, mangrove, mutton, hogfish, cobia, permit, kingfish, amberjack, swordfish and tuna. Many areas have clumps of numbers outlining an area of ledges, rock piles, potholes, wreck debris, etc.

I have separated the files into 4 major regions of the Keys. Below is a description of each area along with a color coordinated map to give an example of the areas covered.

Key Largo/Islamorada (YELLOW)- 1,667 Waypoints
Marathon- (RED)- 1,320 Waypoints
Key West/ Big Pine Key (GREEN)- 1,172 Waypoints
Marquesas/Tortugas (BLUE)- 1,442 Waypoints

The price for each region is $100 FIRM. If you would like to purchase all 4 regions (5,600 waypoints) the price is $350. Payment must be made through PayPal. You will receive an email of the purchased file in GPX. I can also put the numbers in almost any other GPS format, by request.

Please send me a private message including the region(s) you would like to purchase and I will email you a PayPal invoice. Once payment is received, I will send you an email with the coordinates.

The numbers are provided in .gpx format. Lowrance reads .USR format. You can download a conversion software like GPS Babel and convert them yourself, or we can do it for you when we return from vacation next week.

Yes. There are legitimate proven deep drop and swordfish numbers in every file. Everything past the reef line is either deep drop or sword numbers, ledges, pinnacles, etc.

Also, I've been asked about descriptions. I removed all the descriptions due to personal information, inappropriate language, etc.

This is a steal at $100. Results may vary depending on fishing experience, but these numbers will certainly put you in the right areas.

I have had several people ask whether any of these files include areas for daytime sword fishing. The answer is yes, all of the files include areas where we have been successful for swords in the past. Each file also includes areas where we caught snowy and yellowedge grouper as well as grey and golden tilefish. This is in addition to the lobster, snapper and grouper reefs and wrecks on the Atlantic and Gulf side!

Thanks for your feedback, Vegas. I do not dispute your point that the deep drop and sword numbers are in large structure areas that may be visible on some bathymetry charts. With that being said, we have caught fish on those spots and didn't just pull them from some map. It is my intent to help fellow anglers make the most of their time on the water. It sounds like we agree on the fact that this is money well spent and will help increase efficiency while offshore.
Good luck!

Default Waypoint Management

Several people have asked me about Garmin HomePort. I have found HomePort to be a great tool for managing Waypoints from your home PC. HomePort is a free download from Garmin's website (https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/64242) .
I have the capability to provide these Keys numbers in different GPS formats. With that being said, I HIGHLY recommend that each of you back up your current numbers before uploading the new information into your boat's machine.
Here is how I would do it:
Download HomePort
Load the current Waypoints from your machine on to an SD card. From the SD card, load your current Waypoints into HomePort (may have to convert them to .GPX- see bottom of post) and save a copy of that file. Then, open the new waypoint file you receive from me in HomePort and merge the new waypoint file with the old waypoint file. Now that you have 1 file with your new AND old numbers, save that file onto an SD card and then upload the entire file in to your machine on the boat. Now you have a backup at the house and a combined file on the boat!!
THIS STILL WORKS EVEN IF YOU DONT HAVE A GARMIN.
You just need to use a program like GPS Babel to convert from .GPX format to your machine's format before saving to the SD card the final time ( https://www.gpsbabel.org )
Hope this helps!
I know this sounds complicated but it's really pretty user friendly. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Is there anything to differentiate dove wayponts from fishing? I'm mostly interested in the lobster spots.

The majority of the spots <30 foot in depth on both the gulf and Atlantic are lobster spots. Mostly potholes, artificial reefs, ledges and coral heads. You should find all you need in the files. My recommendation would be to start the areas that have multiple Waypoints and drag a snorkeler from spot to spot. You will find new spots in the area along with the spots identified by the marks. Most of the lobster spots in <30' are very small.... but those are the best based on my experience!
