Dutch Banks

The Dutch Banks are a well known area of natural bottom about 10 miles southwest of Pensacola Pass. During a sonar survey of the area, we saw two large ledges (Dutch 1 and Dutch 3 below) and a medium ledge (Dutch 2) with a couple of apparent artificial reefs nearby. This is a nice area of live bottom that produces triggers, snapper and grouper on occasion.
