Default Looking for experiences diver for a snapper trip..

Would like to rent some equipment and try to shoot a snapper or 2 before the season ends. I have boat, guns, spots, ect. Just would like to go with a seasoned vet. You bring the tanks and we'll call it even. Anyone interested send me a PM so we can plan a trip. Rick

Dang!...you can hear the crickets!
Sounds like a good deal for someone. A seasoned diver, problably has a regular crew...which has probably been chomping at the bit to get out as soon as the weather permits.
Also most seasoned guys are superstitous about who they dive with.....gotta be sure you are coming back!
I would suggest that you edit your post to reflect that you are certified to dive, and the # of resent dives.....I know thats pushy, but it would problaby help convince someone to trust you.
If all fails , you might have better luck getting on a boat with a regular crew, or a small charter.

Dalton Kennedy is a great captian, and avid spearo ...currently booking reasonable charters for spearfishing. ....and you wouldn't have to clean the boat!

I am certified and have been spearfishing since I was 8. I did most of my scuba diving in high school and haven't been in a few years and all of my spearfishing has been freediving. Most of my diving friends either moved away to college or work during the week. Got a few PMs and will get a crew together as soon as I see a open weather window. I have 2 offshore boats, the last thing I'm gonna do is pay for a charter. Not looking for a team, just someone that loves to fish/dive to put in the phone when I need a extra or 2. Like I said I've done plenty of diving and plenty of spearfishing, now I'm looking to combine them.

I know there's plenty of divers out there without boats, just trying to share resources.

A generous offer indeed. PM me if you need another diver when the weather calms down.
