The less divers, the more lionfish. Private reefs or deep public ones far out will have the most.

The last time I was on the culverts it was loaded. They are about eighteen miles SW of Destin next to what I was told was a paddle wheel boat in 115ft of water. They are a couple miles east of the Mohawk chief if you know where that is. Don't see to many people dive out there.

The lionfish are still thick! We shot these fish, just a few days after we removed 52 pounds from the same spot. Every wreck I have dove this fall has plenty. These came from the Monica in Destin. They are great eating and it feels good to help out.

Wow, that's a bunch. Hope you guys are freezing and saving the heads of them, just in case they pass that 100 LF heads for 6 Fish Tags proposal. At least you'll be ahead of the pack.

Water Ninja,

That video is crazy... i can't wait to get there and contribute. Hey, are those homemade lion fish holders (don't know what else to call them)? If so, could you provide the material details?

Some of them are homemade out of 6 inch pvc. We also use the lionfish dungeon which is a high quality product from A-plus marine that we also sell on our dive charters. I like the dungeon best because it's easier to empty and comes with a handle and a clip. Not sure which one you saw in the video. They are both similar. I can give you details on both if you send me an email at [email protected].

Y'all need to teach that resident jewfish to eat them up. He could pack away a bunch of them in a day.
