    Not sure exactly where it is so I'll guess within a 25 mile radius of Cape Resurrection.

    There is a Pinnacle Rock at Cape Fairfield on the west side of Johnstone Bay.

    The pinnacles I've heard referred to are on the South end of Green Island, certainly accessable from Seward but a long run.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    Thanks for the replies. I think that the Cape Fairfield area may be what I'm looking for.

    The only pinnacle I'm aware of at Fairfield is about 50 feet above the surface. Perhaps there are others....

    In February 1946, the Alaska Steamship Company's S.S. "Yukon" ran aground at Cape Fairfield in a blizzard with 496 passengers aboard. Over the space of several days, the passengers and crew were stranded aboard while a flotilla of rescue vessels stood by, unable to approach the stricken passenger liner. The ship broke in half and the bow floated to shore with a number of people inside, while the aft half of the "Yukon" grounded offshore, later sinking intact in deeper water after the survivors had at last been safely removed.

    So if you're fishing offshore in the vicinity of Cape Fairfield, near the very distinctive "shark tooth" rock, and see a mysterious underwater plateau on your sounder with a squared-off profile, around 200 feet long, 50 feet wide and about 50-75' profile off the bottom, you just might be fishing over the grave of the "Yukon" shipwreck.
