The Tennessee light marker is a great place to cast net some live bait like scaled sardines or you can sabiki them up. Below is the coordinates. It is also a great place to troll around the reef and the outside of it.
The Tennessee Ledge is also a good place for deeper diving with an abundance of fish. It runs west of the light with a slow slope going from 30 – 50′. The Tennessee Reef Drop Off is located between the reef and the red number 18 day marker. Tennessee Reef Light
The Tennessee Reef Light was one of the two lights to be erected in 1933 using the 1932 design. It stands in 15 feet (4.6 m) of water, and is painted black. It is the only one of the unmanned reef lights in the Florida Keys that still has its lantern.
