Default A idea on how to kill more lionfish, need help though....

We were diving Saturday and took a day off from lionfishing but need to make plans to get right back after them. There is a upcoming tourney that we want to spearo in and I have a plan.....

In the video I recently posted:


These were taken off a private pyramid that has had little or no dive pressure to control the lionfish, with no pressure, the lionfish were infested there and as the video shows there were little or no other fish... I am sure that they are just as bad on other reef's that are only fished on and not had any divers there spearing...I would like to work something out to benefit us both....The fisherman gets a clean reef & I get lionfish for the tourney... Were going to target them well in the tourney but would consider any options to increase our harvest numbers to possibly win the tourney......

ATTN!!!!!!! I am not asking for anybody's private #'s, I would ride on your boat and would never know where we are diving.... If anyone has any interest then let me know... This was just a thought and not meant to offend/upset anyone at all....

That video was incredible. I couldn't believe how dense they were on that little pyramid. It seemed that there was no end to them as you shot and bagged them by the dozen. In such a short time the population has absolutely exploded.

I read in a research study that they often eat 1-2 fish per hour, which on the structure out here means tropicals, juvenile lobster/snapper/grouper, etc. It's awful to see.
