Default "The Edge" dive video

Shot this video on The Edge yesterday. 180' deep and pretty dark.

You will get a bigger video view when you click on the "YouTube" link at the bottom of the window.

Thanks Whackum for:1. I had no idea the Edge was so much geometric rock structure; Thought it was more rubble looking; 2. You took out some lion fish. Glad there weren't more there. 3. Showing what life is like on the edge. Lots of little guys swimming around.
What was that last thing that you picked up? a big clam shell

Awesome video as usual. Thanks! We were out there yesterday. Caught 8 monsta mingos, had 3 mystery breakoffs, and caught 1 suicidal mahi on the fly line.

Kinda slow but had a windlass failure, couldn't anchored right.

Neat to see what we were fishing. Question: We were catching big mingos about 12 cranks (20 feet) off the bottom. Do you see schools hanging like that?

Yes, it was a helmet shell for my wife.

I didn't see any mingos where we were.

Lots of those monofilament fish lodged in those rocks!

There was another video of the "Edge" a couple years ago. It too was extra cool. It looks like the "blocks" are man made.

But it's due to some sort of "fracturing" that happens because water or air gets under certain rock forms and they crack and fall away...

It's not man made, but it looks like it is.

VERY COOL video.
