Default StrikeLines.com charts for the Elbow, Sticky Grounds, Middle Grounds, & state waters

StrikeLines.com has brand new charts for the Tampa area, everything from the Elbow, the Sticky Grounds, the Middle Grounds, and state waters from Tarpon Springs to Venice. In the next month we’ll also be pushing out new charts for federal waters in the same latitudes and even dipping down to Pulley Ridge.

We make the charts using high resolution side scan sonar imagery of the sea floor. We look at what's down there and then mark up the good stuff so you can fish it. Sinkholes, long and rugged rocky ledges, coral heads, wrecks, huge artificials, pipelines, hard bottom, soft coral, even old oil derricks, we've marked it so you can fish it.

3D map of the Middle Grounds:





Ever wanted to know what the Elbow looks like?





The Sticky Grounds?



Or maybe you prefer artificial sites in state waters?



Hard bottom ledges in state waters?




StrikeLines' charts will work most GPS hardware and we're available to help if you have problems. For more information and to download charts check out StrikeLines.com.

We've found the spots and marked the best for you, now go fish them.

Interesting.

Can you describe how you obtained the bathymetry?

Are the maps for just a few areas of the Gulf? Or the entire Gulf? Can you show the coverage area?

Chrisrack,

We generate most of our own data using our tow-behind side scan sonar. We obtain a limited amount of data from other sources.

You can view our current coverage on our website. We will be adding federal waters charts from Tarpon Springs south within the next few weeks.

Thanks

Looks real interesting. Saw you commented on my other post. What kind of price are we talking and is it hard info like a card or digital like a down load? Chrisrack we need to hit the grouper again. Rag’s.

Ragtop409,

Unfortunately THT rules don't allow sharing of pricing in posts, but pricing is posted on our website at strikelines.com. We normally provide a digital download that you transfer to a memory card. If that proves to be a problem we can mail a physical memory card with the chart preloaded, but the process is pretty easy. Please let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks

We've added more charts:



Also, StrikeLines is looking for a few experienced folks who regularly fish or dive off Florida’s west coast to help us ground truth new fishing charts. If you make it offshore often, know how to read your bottom machine, and are willing to provide feedback on our new charts, please email Tristan at Tristan@strikelines.com for details.

Bonus points if you can provide us with underwater photos of charted reefs. You don’t have to be able to run to the Middle Grounds or Elbow; we’ve got stuff within state waters we’d like feedback on. If you have a friend who might be interested, please pass this along.

Thanks,

Tristan

I just bought the St Pete Tampa Offshore map and will be hitting them hard Friday and Saturday. I like that there is not just spots, but descriptions of the type of structure such as Rough HB and Ledge, good Ledge and great ledge.

Doing these types of searches myself would take a lifetime!

Good luck with your business. If someone did this for the Texas coast I would be all over it, pretty cool.

Thanks, we've really been enjoying it. Fun business, great customers, and we get out on the water now and then, although not as often as our captain!

Where do you normally fish out of in TX and how far offshore are you running?

Tristan, uploaded the numbers I bought and am excited to start checking them out. I'd be game for doing some research for you on the Clearwater Nearshore if you want me to - I can hit the numbers, make notes on what is caught, and when the water warms up I can dive a bunch of spots and take pics and video.

If you guys end up coming down in the Spring maybe you could bring your sonar and we can drive around my stomping grounds off New Port Richey and you can record that info and chart it - great spots and ledges.

Looks like me and the wife will be coming up to Pensacola in April - hopefully we can get together for a beer.

Eric

Eric,

We'll definitely be in touch soon and hopefully when this weather clears we'll get the sonar boat down there.

Are y'all going to do any diving while you're up here? If so, shoot me an email. Let's get you on some of our spots! Beer for sure either way!

Don't know about diving in April - all depends on water temps! But I'd be up for beer and/or fishing

What is the water temp during the first week of April up there?

I'm not sure about the water temps in April. My father-in-law from Maine would say wonderful but it's still too cold for me!

And heck yes to beer and fishing.

At my age and too many years living in FL, anything below 68 is too cold, even with a 5/4/3 mil suit on - LOL.
