My usual dive buddy is busy this week and I have all week until Sunday to shoot everyday. We shoot from kayak or off the beaches in Choctaw bay. Just snorkel/free dive. I need a buddy to come along If anyone's interested just PM me and I'll send my number. Here's a pic to give u an idea of how good my hot spots are. Lol!

Depth

Not very deep. Lol! I don't have a boat so I'm limited to the bay. There's a few docks and some old wrecks we dive that are maybe 20-25. I can dive 45+. We go to Morrison springs from time to time to practice diving deeper than what we can do in the bay. I'm open water certified but rarely dive. Without a boat and just diving off the kayaks or beach there's no need for all that crap. Fins,snorkel, knife, mask, speargun, and the mind of a sheepshead assassin. That's all u need. Oh and a catch bag.

Depth

I'd say 90% of the fish are shot from the surface. Sometimes on deeper docks I'll dive down and wrap my legs around a piling and hang out. What's funny is the majority if the big sheepys we shoot are in less than 3' of water. Especially along solid dock walls. They love to munch on barnys along flat surfaces. There is one place we go that getting a limit of sheepys is almost a guarantee. In order to keep peace with local dock owners we throw them a fish or two once in awhile. I'll post another pic from a crazy day we had about a month ago.

We shot all these in about two hours. My wife followed us in her kayak and caught a redfish and several mangroves.

Vis

The vis is getting better in the bay. Offshore is always crystal this time of year. We shot in Destin harbor today and did pretty. The first stop the vis was maybe 5-8'. The second stop varied a lot. Sometimes we could see bottom 10 feet down. Sometimes u were lucky to see the end of your gun. Come on over and shoot with us.
