Default 4th of July week fun!

As the title says the whole week was fun! I dont have all the pictures from the weekend my other camera is still at the beach But anywas the week was the best I have seen in a while! I hope everyone else had a great time, Since i haven't had time to go through all the posts that i missed.

Sunday the crew was my dad a few friends and myself we had a pretty good day with some nice grouper, snapper and kings in the mix with a bonus cobia.

Monday and tuesday it was just my parents and I with some nice snapper and my first try at spearfishing with my new gun.

Wed we made it out for about an hour and then the storm came in so we headed in for a few hours until it cleared and we went down to scallop some which was really disappointing, we ended up with only a handful of scallops in 3 hours. The DNR said it was the worst year in a long time for scallops

Thursday was a great day with a few new members to the crew who had never been offshore before. The girls absolutely loved being on the boat, they got to catch most of the snapper and all of the dolphin! While they were catching the chickens on ultralights my buddies and I were diving under the weed patches looking for bigger fish to shoot with no luck. Its pretty cool all the life that you see under those things that you never get to see from above! After that we went to another spot where I shot a nice mangrove and sheeps head. I had a huge goliath inhale my mangrove that was on the spear as i was swimming up to the surface, all of this was caught on the GoPro too! We ended the day with 8 snapper, 12 dolphin, 1 mangrove, 1 cobia and a sheeps head

Took friday off to recover and have a few drinks on the beach

Sat we ended up with a 5 man limit of snapper and a friend of mines first dolphin, however small it may be its still a dolphin! After that we went back to diving, the mangroves were past my comfort zone to get to but i did get to watch 6-8 massive goliaths swimming around the tower we were fishing which was probably the coolest thing i have ever seen!

All in all a pretty damn good week if i do say so myself!! Sorry to be so long winded just had a lot to type!
