Default U-2513 sub wreck off tortugas

Is fishing allowed here? I think it is. Anyone fish it?

I have spearfished it before and never saw much more than big AJs and Goliath on it in the summertime. I imagine it gets hit pretty regular but who knows what could be there on any given day.

If its the Sub, I once or twice fished, North of the Tortuga's 8 to 10 miles, 140 feet deep more or less. I remember lots of cobia there, and king fish.

that must be a different sub. This one is on the fishing charts and located 23 miles from the fort in 200ft of water. If you got numbers for that sub, I can check it out for you.

23 miles north or west of the fort? 200 ft more likely west.

Gets hit multiple times a week. Some days more than once. I wouldn’t bother. Save the gas.

The other wreck mentioned in this thread gets hit daily. Sharks are ferocious

That sounds like the wreck we dove several times and it was a very large ship (300ft plus). It came off the bottom from 140ft to 80ft. I believe the name of it was the Oiler.
