Bay and Gulf Counties
Over 390 GPS Waypoints for Bay & Gulf Counties
Panama City, Mexico Beach, Port Saint Joe and more
Includes sites in the Florida Panhandle Shipwreck Trail. Bay County has incredible reef sites for diving and fishing with great clarity and structure. Bay County and other organizations like MBARA are very active in deploying new reefs and maintaining existing sites. With over 335 sites coordinates, you will never run out of great reef sites to visit in Bay County.
NOTE: We have had reports recently that many artificial reef sites in Gulf County are gone or dispersed, frustrating anglers trying to find structure. Most sites on our lists were laid in the the 1990's and from storm activity or the effects of time, many sites may be gone. Please let us know the exact site if you cannot find one and we will remove it from our lists. We include the coordinates for these sites because many are still there or nearby.

We include many files for your GPS brand. Your unit will recognize 1 or more files on the chip. Only import 1 file as they all contain the exact same data. Always backup your units data to a blank card before importing our waypoints.
Transferring Waypoints to GPS Your Unit Your unit must accept SDTM memory cards; we include 2 sizes that work with most modern devices. Simply insert the correct size memory card into your unit then select the appropriate menu items to import and merge waypoints into your unit. After the waypoints are uploaded, remove the chip from your unit.
Our chips are not software and do not self-install; you must manually select menu items on your GPS unit to import waypoints. We include a detailed instruction sheet, a User Guide and GPS brand instructions on our FAQ pages. Please refer to your units operating manual for instructions on how to upload waypoints to your unit; we do not provide support on how to use your unit or its software.
PDF & KML files include date sunk, description/materials, latitude, longitude, depth, relief, and links to more site information (if available/varies by site.)
Unit files and GPX files include 4 fields: name, description/materials, latitude, and longitude. Some unit files include the depths but not many due to import constraints. Click image to right to see actual sites included.
What Sites Are Included? The types of waypoints included vary by county and may include artificial reefs, natural reefs, shipwrecks, ledges & holes, island & inlets, marine boundaries, and mooring buoys. Visit our main websites www.floridagofishing.com or www.americagofishing.com to find the area you are interested in purchasing under the GPS menus. This is where you can look up New! sites that are added to our lists after our annual fall updates.
Updates We update our GPS lists of waypoints in the fall months. Once a county is complete we add any new sites to our website lists and mark them with New!. Usually there are only a small number added to some areas, so you can easily key them into your unit.
Many areas rarely have site changes or additions so you may received data files that are dated as far back as 2014.
Sure, you can use our numbers online for free, but do you really want to spend your valuable time typing in hundreds of waypoints? And how convenient is it to have nearby site numbers ready when you need them, numbers you never thought you would use.
Secret Spots There are NO secret sites in our data files. All waypoints are for public sites acquired from many sources. An enormous amount of time has been spent researching the thousands of waypoints on our lists making them very unique.
GPS Coordinates Format GPS units & software programs will automatically convert our file formats to your Lat/Long default setting. Our files are in the following formats:
PDF & KML Files: Lat/Long Decimal Minutes (dd mm.mmm)
Unit & GPX Files: Lat/Long Decimal Degrees (dd.dddddddd)
Accuracy of Coordinates
Due to the Increased and Severity of Recent and Past Hurricane Activity, it is Very Possible Coordinates May Not Be Accurate.
America Go Fishing cannot guarantee accuracy of coordinate data contained in data files. However, America Go Fishing constantly performs reef monitoring through volunteer reef report submissions and communications with reef stakeholders to verify locations of artificial reefs and produce the closest waypoint coordinates possible. Please understand that smaller reefs can be very difficult to locate with GPS and depth sounders because they are small targets that can be challenging for highly experienced navigators to find. Storms and other natural events can relocate sites and the effects of saltwater can erode a site making identification difficult. With these factors in mind and other unknown circumstances, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of our files, content or coordinates.
Maps & Nautical Charts Files on this card contain waypoint locations only - maps and nautical charts underlay our waypoints when viewing in YOUR software or on your GPS unit.
Software Application software must be pre-installed to use PDF & KML data files. Free software available. Most manufacturers provide free or low cost software to manage waypoints on your computer.
