Default I HAVE BEEN DOING SOME THINKING

I was driving across the bay way today in Mobile when the song " don't know what you got till it's gone " by Cinderella came on. And thats when it it hit me, i never dreamed of the day when i would wait for the Man to say " ok boys i will let you go out and spear or catch two snapper each." I think back over the last several years when we would fuss and fight over " hey man the commercial guys get this, and the charter guys get this, and you recreational guys get this.". You know what ? Not a Damn one of us are getting SHIT right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its gone man. I will say this, when and if we ever get OUR gulf back, i will have a different opinion. i will not fuss about the man taking to long at the boat ramp, instead, i will get my ass out of my truck and help him and maybe even show him a shortcut. I will not bitch when i am sitting in the water waiting to load my boat. I will not bitch about a misprint on a sign the has bait shrimpfor sale. There are several other things i can name but i think we can all understand where i am coming from. Thats just me.

Amen Bradley! Never looked at that perspective.

And I got a brand new DeathStick enclosed track speargun that I just got my riding rig all braided up on and ready...never shot... Boat is finally tip top after all new ignition systems, waterpumps, etc, and then new props and shafts straightened...but no where to go shoot fish.

and i am still thinking. am i wrong men ? none of us are fishing or diving. i think about if the explosion and leak would not have happened, my dive team, named The Mobile RIG Divers, would have dove the very rigs and shot big fish off of because they were there in the first place to provide us with such a wonderful resource for fish. i have went back and looked over numerous post and observed post where people out Mobile and P'cola were heading to the rigs and the old sunken rigs to fish and dive. am i supposed to hate the very people that have provided me with such a place to harvest fish in the beginning ? when we pull up to a rig that has 20 boats on it and we get that look of " how dare you dive on this rig while we are fishing " i never thought i would miss that !!!!!! today is June 8 2010. i should haveat least 35 dives under my belt over the last eight days, but i dont, i only have two. and the charter guys andcommercial guys that depend on this to feed their families have it 10 fold worse than what i do.i cant be mad at the oil guys because all of the years they provided me with a great place to spear without any incident. and on the next hand they shut down the very thing i live for, other than Jesus , and that is diving and fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. thats just me, and i am not trying to be rodney king with the " cant we all just get along " mentality. I just miss my Gulf and my dive friends and my P'cola dive friends. I am through.

Alot of truth in what you speak brother......but I won't agree on the boat ramp situation ----:doh I'll still get mad but I always hold my composure....Now ifin its an older guy/gal I'll do what I can for em, but these folks that take up multiple lanes-load/unload EVERYTHING while trying to launch and crap like that, I'll never have that patience....:crazy::P:crazy:
