Default Anteres Reef Donkey

It was a beautiful day on the gulf Sunday. Did one dive on the Anteres and picked off this little reef donkey while all the huge red snapper were taunting me.

Chapman: Yea, the seas were flat. The viz was OK, nothing to brag on, but probably about 30ft. There was scum layer half way down that had me concerned I would have 0 viz, but as I descended, I dropped out of it. You could look up and see the layer above you.

My name is Dean, and my father was Dean as well. We didn't weigh the Jack. I wish we did, because he was a fat boy. We only measured him and he was 3 feet in length.

Hey Dean

sorry, I wouldn't have picked on ya about your picture so much but I thought I recognized you.

if the AJ was 36 fork length he was about 25# +/-

it's a good one.

No problem. I didn't take it as you were picking on me. Yea, the measure was to the fork, so thanks for the estimate on the weight. I have shot two other AJ's in my past, but I think this is my biggest. I need to start gathering these details in the future, just so I can know for my own bravado sake where I stand.

You know, until he hits the scale, he can weigh whatever you want
