Default Lost my gun at the Liberty. HELP!

I lost my hammerhead evolution2 100cm speargun this past Saturday while freediving this wreck. A few of our team mates can reach 70 ft but the vis was poor and the current wasn't in our favor for an attempted locate/recover. we were about 100 yards south of the wreck with a northern current. im hoping the current cause it to get close or even hung up in the wreck. Will pay a finders fee. It also had my gopro attached to it. my name and number are on the camera housing, the camera, and the gun. Although the name on the gun is wearing off.

Im also willing to split gas for a trip out there and scuba for it. Im certified but prefer freedive. haven't been on air in a while.

thanks in advance.

hope It makes its way back to me

Joe

Good luck getting this back. It's a bunch of money gone if not recovered.

That gun will be within 25 ft of whare you dropped it if if was heavy and not nuetral. Try to get a accurate spot anchor and take a line and do a search around the anchor. That wreck is usually dirtyier than most if its the meek off pens. I would look for it but i am out of the area for 3 weeks. Let submarer take you and do a controled search where it sank it wont go far from that spot.

Submariner, when are you available and are you scuba certified as well. I haven't been on air in a while and would want a dive buddy.

Sealark thanks for the info. I think my gun would be heavy with the addition of the camera with extended battery. but the volume of air inside the housing may have an affect too. and 80ft isn't enough to break the housing I have the coordinates of where our boat was when I dropped it and I was about 20 behind it, I think, I didn't see it go down. I only remember swimming a fish back to the boat with my gun in tow and then, no gun.

LOL... he's out of the area.... Meaning... he's harvesting LOBSTERS like a kid in a candy store. . Let me know if I'm way off the mark, Ron.
