Default Sharky out there fellow Spearos!!

Had some very "Sharky" dives yesterday. Saw sharks on just about every dive so we stopped the solo dives and started going in pairs. In this video, watch as I load my second band, Greg shoots a nice snapper and 4 bull sharks move in. Freakin hilarious when Greg reaches down to turn on the shark shield!! Luckily the snapper swam into the coop or we could have had some issues. Once the shield was on, they still got close, but their feeding mode seemed to turn off. I watched Greg's back while he worked on getting the fish up on a lift bag. BTW, biggest bull shark I've ever seen...the video doesn't do his size justice. Make sure you are in 1080p...enjoy.

I don't see many people up here using lift bags, but where I learned to dive in South Florida we sent practically every fish up. It's definitely the way to go with sharks around in my opinion

Same thing for us on Friday. Saw sharks every dive, including the biggest bull I have seen!

One shark, I'm good! Two sharks, I get cautious! Three sharks, I tend to abort since it's usually more than me and a buddy can keep an eye on. Four sharks and I'm out of there. I am not afraid of them at all. One I will usually chase off myself. But when there's that many, they WILL gang up on you to get your fish!!!!

I always swim as fast as I can at them to give them a jab and they tend to back off after that! The big ones don't scare me as much as the little young punks that don't have fear like a teenager. The big ones take a jab to the nose and learn. The smaller punks keep coming back even after a jab from a spear point.

Grandpa that's not even that many lions!!! There are a couple of spots I'm scared to drop down in the sand to reload my gun or string a fish, they are so thick I'm afraid I'll land on one and poke my knee!

Get an SPL and pay for a few trips on those spots. All the buyers I've talked with can't get enough to keep up.
