It's all about "where", I think, rwidman. Chumming doesn't typically take place in a quiet, crowded, anchorage. But if I toss the remains of my pan fried bass into the waters of Nicolet Bay - 30ft away from my neighbor - that might result in some contretemps.

Otherwise - not an issue, right? In the restricted waters of the Great Lakes, garbage and sewage disposed of over the side is forbidden - anywhere. In harbor, we seal our heads, right? But in the middle of the ocean - I'm crapping with the fishes.

Re: Trusting junk?

How about a large disc 42"X1/2" with a 1.5" rod welded in the center of it, a eye on the end. It would be mushroom shaped and dig its way into the bottom. I've made these using 12" dia disc for use in a lake and once they are dug in you don't get them back. The part I'am talking about is a disc or blade used to turn soil, here is a pic of the implement, using a single disc to fabricate this is what I'am referring to, the largest dia I've seen is 42".Click image for larger version

Re: Trusting junk?

I think the engine block, properly cleaned, makes a great reef.

It's an interesting idea but the OP mentioned a daily tidal range of about 25 feet, the water would be very cold. I'm not sure if it would be very pleasant diving conditions.

That's what dry suits are for.
