Default What have you found in the gulf?

Scenario: Your going out diving in the gulf, cruising along to your destination, and something pops up on your bottom machine. You stop the boat, suit up, and drop down.

Question: What are some things that you have found scuba diving in the gulf? Have you guys seen some old car bodies down there? 55 gallon drums? If so, how much fish were on them?

Dove on what ended up being a bait ball that marked up on the bottom machine before.

Other than that, have run across spots and dove them only to find out later they were public spots that had moved a bit due to hurricanes.

You name it, its down there. Tanks(storage), cars, tires, boats, buses, dumpsters, planes, washers,etc. Most of the good stuff you can't put down anymoreand it wasn'tstuff that hurt anything.

I'm sorry if I offended anyone I truly am. I meant it as trying to be humerous but apperantly I failed. I am a retired police officer with over 25 years and have seen it all from burned up bodies to rotten bodies. Sometimes if you do not have a little humor it will get to you. Again I am truly sorry and promise to do better,especially around thin skinned people.

I thought it was humerous. I guess that seems to be a bad thing.
