This is a good spot to catch Giant Trevally or Ulua. Live mullet is the bait of choice for many. There are also many different reef fish found here. I caught a Christmas Wrasse and Brown Unicornfish here.

This spot is the center of a ledge that runs for at least half a mile. The eighth of a mile or so to the east northeast and west southwest of this spot holds Golden Tilefish. I suspect there is more in the area.
