Default Report from monday night

Man I'm whipped. First I went spearfishing yesterday and shot some nice blues and a couple flatheads in a freshwater lake. On the way in with the lite winds I decided to go gigging that night. Conditions were great except the tide was strong. Shrimp were blowing by the boat along the shoreline clouding up the water. Worked a little bit, scared a few nice ones, but got my limit of 10. Most were average with a couple around 18 inches. Didn't care, I wanted some filets! Pics to follow.

Thanks Bama and Flounder. Crazy thing happened last night, I went to gig a flounder and I totally missed the head shot. Instead of the flounder shooting off, it swims 3 feet away and stops giving me just enough time to stick it the second time.

Caddy, not ashamed at all about saying I spearfish. Where I dive takes a ton of skill. I dive a lot of times with visibility less than 3 feet. Taken quite a few friends that have never shot a fish. Heck, it took me 4 trips before I got my first and finally mastered it after putting in four years. I purposely don't shoot many. Go more for size than loading the box up. I've also taken some of my fish recently and fried them up for the homeless here in NOLA.
