Default 3/24 bottom time

Been talking to Swander about diving for about two months now, the stars aligned and he made it back to Alabama for the weekend. Being that he hadn't dove in a few months and I really wanted to get back on his boat and dive with him we headed out of OBA to a few spots he knew of. First dive he just started slaying the black snapper right out of the gate. I took aim at a AJ about 4min into the dive and that didn't end well for me, I got him in close and reached for my kill spike, it wasn't there, I had left it on the boat. Thats about the time he decided he didn't like being sideways with a spear shaft in his head and started to freak, idk how he pulled the shaft out of his head but he swam away after a few good tugs. Steve is still cleaning up on the blackies so I take a short swim and run into the AJ in the picture, he got stoned and slid right into place on the stringer. First dive I was 1 for 2 on the AJ and 0 on the black snapper, Steve was loaded up on the snapper, idk how many but he did good. Dive two was once again awesome, saw my biggest stingray and a manta ray that I can see on the Gopro vid but just barely, 5 fish for myself but, only two black snapper. Once again Steve did a great job and idk his fish count for the 2nd dive either(Steve, do you remember?). Seas were kind of rough, bubble watchers were sea sick(us too a little, I suppose), we decided to omit a the 3rd dive and call it a day. Thanks for the great dives Steve!

A video will follow when I get the time to edit it.

Nice post Jeremy, You are too kind! Hope you edit out all of my misses. Already back at the job in Nebraska and not likin it much. I looked at my video and it consisted of our 3 min safety stop and about 10 min of Destiny curled up in that seat on the back of the boat. She would probly kill me if I posted that. Sure enjoyed the time on the water with you all. Lets do it again. Oh, I was gonna tell the guys at MBT about that buzzing sound on the bottom but thought they would laugh me out of the shop!

Steve

Well, as sweet as Destiny may be, that may be a boring video.
I would love the opertunity to dive with you again, I have to bring Alyssa next time tho.
I know she would love to meet you and ride/dive your boat.

As far a the buzzing sound, I think you need to check your BC for a stray cellphone.
Can anybody explain the sound of a cell phone on vibrate at about 80-90 ft?

Help me out guys...those look like Cubera to me. Is it like Cobia and Ling being the same fish? So, Black Snapper and Cubera are two different ways to refer to the same fish?

No cubera is not a black snapper. Black snapper is a local term for a mangrove snapper.
