Default Spearfishing 2-8-14 Pics and Report

Trip report for 2-8-14. Got a very late start because of some boat trailer issues. 3 hours later, hit the water at noon and still managed to get out a ways. Water was nice and slick. We managed 3 dives in the 110-125 range. First natural bottom, second was a chicken coop, third was a desolate concrete pyramid. If you ask the captain, it was the worst haul in the history of the boat, but everybody else (Critterfl and Miller time) went home happy. I got a total of 1 lobster, 28 lionfish, and an 8.5 pound trigger.

I weighed out the lobster, trigger, and a lionfish at GBB&T and put them onto the spearfishing derby thread.

By the way, Bill, this is what a lobster looks like with no pants on

NICE!
thanks for saving me the humiliation of the" lost wheel" story, then the "lost fin" story and the "lost glove" story.
I did recover the fin in the middle of 3 mile bridge but unfortunately, 24 hours later, the strap buckles were disintegrated! Oh well, thanks for the tip on that!
Cool looking lobster photo!
Next time AA....Next time.....we'll find'em!
Next time!
Any pictures of the natural bottom? it's a piece I don't think I've ever dove so I'd like to get an idea of what it looked like. by the way. I wasn't sure how you wanted the "official" photos uploaded...don't mean to derail the thread here...thanks for the photos!

I think that's fine the way you uploaded them.

The natural bottom one didn't record for some reason. It shut off while I was headed down the anchor line.

You would kill in a Lionfish tournament! Do we have any in the panhandle or any interest in getting one established? I'd help run one!

I think 28 lionfish in a day is a far cry from what some other guys are getting, but for me, lionfish are usually an afterthought. We have a PFF spearfishing derby going on year-long. It's free and just for bragging rights.

There is a section for not only largest lionfish, but also a per-day total.

US Divers Blades....antiques...best fins ever made

By the way Toner, we're like you guys, the danged Lionfish are by catch so 27 isn't bad considering that's our 3rd option on a dive (Game fish first, then bugs, then Lions)

Miller Time went with us! He spoke highly of you....I suspect, after the day we had he's thinkin "what a cluster fudge!" we are

Man I can't believe that you let the guy miller time on your boat Bill. He's one shady character.





Just kidding. I thought you were banished to the depths of land lock Brandon?

Maybe as soon as hunting furry critters on land end, I'll break out the bubble gear finally.

Nice haul guys.

Hey Bill,

I was just looking at the Derby spreadsheet. Just wanted to let you know that my lionfish is bigger than your almaco jack. Just saying
