Im not looking for secret spots. I downloaded the fwc numbers which was about 12 spots. I know there has to be more than 12 public wrecks in Jupiter area. There use to be a link to public numbers on FL sportsman that link is dead.

There is some really nice patch reef from 60' all the way out to ledge. Better to not fish the ledge anyway with all of the sharks

Get CMor or get familiar with bathymetry charts on NOAA website. Plenty of resources out there to see what the bottom contour is in your area, look for hard bottom, get the numbers off bathy charts, go fish. Bathy charts even give you the depth.

I recently said the same thing, but got my head bit off and told I should go take a bunch of charters and I guess steal their numbers. I think there is less than 12 actually. For some reason WPB and Stuart have a ton of man-made wrecks, but Jupiter is seriously lacking.

I bought a Strikelines card about 6 months ago, and fish the ledges. When I dont feel like dealing with too much current, I stay on the first ledge and catch triggers/porgys/small muttons (occasional keeper). When the current isnt too bad we will go to the 2nd and 3rd ledge but honestly do the best on the shallow one lately. Every time I have tried to go deeper than 80' this year its been blue runner and shark fiesta. Thats going South. To the North is Loran ledge but honestly the few times I ventured North I didnt do so hot.

sadly CMOR doesn't offer too much out front here. Nada useful for deep dropping
$$$ plus didicated display if yours isn't friendly with it. ( My Garmin is not supported )

DD numbers arent that hard to find out of jupiter, tiles are there.

I looked at cmor but not worth it IMP and I have garmin as well. Those numbers are a start.

My suggestion is to understand the bottom contour by looking at Bathymetry charts. Jupiter is the one area with the widest reef, specially in the 80-100ft

Like a said, check NOAA....... there's plenty data available 7 miles south of Jupiter inlet...... https://maps.ngdc.noaa.gov/viewers/bathymetry/

You have multiple ledges in 80ft. As you head east and going deeper, you'll see 80ft, then a sharp wall probably 50-60ft at top, then slowly drops down from the Greenish reef you see with the yellow mark, quite a few small reef lines before you get to the drop off. Sorry I can't help with artificial wrecks...

Use the NOAA chart posted above and you can see depths and GPS numbers when you point your mouse....

The public NOAA charts cut off. That detailed stuff is what strikelines sells as their "Google Earth" card. Those images Jose posted are out of google earth not the NOAA site, but he may know of how to get the bathy data added to google without having to pay for it with a strikelines card. I personally havent been able to figure it out, not for lack of trying. I bought their Lowrance card instead and just use that imagery on the boat. It definitely has made a huge difference in what I fish and what I skip over. That first monster ledge he is talking about is the one I drift more often than not, and just inside that all those patch reefs as well.
