Educate me on The Pipeline please!

I read posts about fishing along "The Pipeline". I see a long buried pipeline on my Navionics chart running roughly Northwest away from Egmont. Is that the pipeline folks are fishing along? Do you run out a few miles, then motor along the pipeline and watch for activity on the sounder? What's the story? Thanks for the input! It is very helpful.

    Yes and no. You have the right pipeline, but it is mostly buried. Due to the impact that the construction caused (destroying natural habitat), lots of pipeline mitigation sites were placed near it (i.e. artificial reefs). These are what people are fishing when they talk about the pipeline. I understand that coordinates for only a portion of the sites are public knowledge, gotta find the rest for yourself.
