Default Lionfish Hunters Jackpot! - new video from last weeks trip

This footage turned out better than I could have hoped! We took over 100 fish from this site alone! Enjoy!

Awesome video! Glad you cleaned up some of the invaders. Looked like a few nice triggers were camping out too.

Think its time to start having fish fry's. All we can eat. Hear they are good. Make them worth about $4 a lb whole & have some tournaments. That would end them.

Amazing video! Great! Wish we had 100 divers a day clearing those things from the waters and adding them to some restaurants menus...

My gosh there were a bunch of them on those reef balls! What kind of fish were those they had eaten?
I watched a documentary a couple of weeks ago from Roatan where the they went down in a submersible and were finding lionfish as deep as 600 ft. They also reported the higher population densities seemed to be around 2-400 ft. This is what scares me about the future of native fish populations, they seem to vacuum up pretty much all the small fish off a site. Each mature female can pump out up to 2,000,000 eggs when they spawn. Impossible to stop the spread as they drift with the currents until they find a home.

Thank you for putting a dent in the population!

It was just 4 years ago that I dove and I didn't see a single lion fish. Crazy how it's only been a few years and they are taking over our reef structures.
