The bottom in the northern Gulf of Mexico consists of a gradual sloping mud bottom void of any structure with the exception of the thousands of oil platforms. The platforms provide the structure needed for the crustaceans and small bait fish to hide. This in turn sets up a food chain for the vast variety of fish found in the gulf.
The oil platforms provide the structure needed for crustaceans small bait fish to hide. This in turn sets up the food chain for the vast variety of fish found in the Gulf. Bottom feeders such as Snapper and Grouper can be found at the lower levels while Cobia, Amberjack, Mackerel and numerous other species will be found in the middle and upper levels. The oil platforms in the shallow waters near shore hold Speckled Trout and Redfish while the deepwater structures gather schools of Wahoo, Tuna, Dolphin and Marlin.
You never know what's on the end of your line when fishing around the oil platforms. That's why so many anglers love FISHING THE OIL PLATFORMS!
