Surveying the latest bottom fishing spots.

New artificial reefs statewide continue to attract reef fish-and fishermen. Listed are the freshest artificial reef deployments from this past year. Upcoming for this year? Plenty! Eleven new projects are in the works, started in late April and ending August 31, says FWC's Bill Horn. For a breakdown of this year's upcoming reef deployments, go to www.floridasportsman.com/xtra. Below, latitude and longitude figures are in degrees, minutes and decimal minutes.
