Default Today was a bust

Went out today for a quickie and the water was incredible. Clearest blue I've seen in a long, long time. We hit some stuff in the 110' and 90' range around 17 miles out. Found plenty of fish...but seems like we couldn't get to them because they saw us coming a mile away. No bugs, 13" trigger everywhere, huge AJ's...but not looking for AJ. I hesitated a few seconds on a big snapper and it was enough for him to get just out of range. My Buddies had a few snapper pull off the shaft. Me and my dive partner had to abort our second dive because one of the other divers had a run in with a lionfish...and he lost. He was starting to really hurt so we came in. Total score...4 divers- zero fish and one really painful needle stick! But overall a great day off.

Normally very, very talkative...he was totally silent the whole way in. Sucked it up pretty good, but said it felt like a bee sting times 100. I knew he was hurting when he said to please take him to the dock.

Sorry to hear about the bad luck. The nice part about spearfishing is that even if you don't get fish, it's still diving.

Did yall try getting some hot water from the tell tale? Ive heard that it helps, I KNOW hot water helps with stingray stings.

My engine doesn't produce hot enough water. He had to wait till we got back to the dock for relief. Fortunately, he ha a Lortab (for his arthritis) and it finally kicked in a little by the time we got to the dock.

Sorry you guys had a rough run. We managed to nail a few, but our day was a cluster also. Hope your buddy heals quick. Never had a lionfish jab, but my day is coming I'm sure.

Salt, did you find that there were times of small fish, but the big ones were few and far in between?

I guess I am wondering if the Clear water really did make it harder to kill fish.

We had one run. Diver gave chase, to no avail. The rest took shelter in the structure... to no avail. They certainly saw us coming.
