The East Bay reefs don't show up real well.

What I've done in the past is load the GPS coordinates from a TopSpot Map in to Google Earth.

Oyster reefs come and go

The maps you are looking for are in a book called "Galveston Bay Oyster Reef Survey:" done by the Galveston Bay Estuary Program. The document is located at gbic.tamug.edu/gbeppubs/50/gbnep_50_cover-contents.pdf

The map is available at http://coastal.tamug.edu/gis/index.html

I found these maps when I was doing research before making my DVD "Speckled Trout Intensive Training DVD Series - Find the Fish Catch a Limit"

After talking to Oyster Sam (DR. Sammy Ray) an old timer PhD Oyster man at TAMU Galveston) I abandoned remapping the reefs myself. Apparently they stay in the same general area but constantly move. According to Oyster Sam it only takes about 3 months for a new reef to form; all it needs is a little subtrate such as old shell, rock, hard clay, or huricane, debris and voila. Then once formed they can be harvested by oyster boats and be gone ...so knowing exactly where the reefs are only helps a little. What counts is knowing how to work slicks so you can find the trout everyday. That is what my DVD ended up focusing on. I made tons of graphics to discuss how to fish slicks under different tides and wind conditions so you can always find the fish. The preview of the DVD is click here

I offer it with a money back guarantee and no one has returned one yet.

Good luck, hope this helped. http://www.troutsupport.com

This should open up a few more spots for most of us to fish right?

I know of a whole lot of reefs that are not on that map. How old is that?

How much shell do you need to consider an area a reef?

It was first done in 1975... remapped in 92 if I recall. Yes, there is a lot of shell not on the map... that's why it's not remapped more often nor why anyone makes a detailed map of it. It forms, it's harvested, hurricanes happen, etc.

How much shell is considered a reef... nothing specific, but I doubt they worried about small sections of reef less than 10meter' diameter.

I know that since Ike there has been some remapping...not sure if it's complete yet.
