super cool, how many lion fish did you end up with....? (including those ones that swam back out of the bag) That spot seemed to be covered up with them. are other wrecks have lionfish like that one?
Jim I only ended up with five to the boat, I know a few more had a bad day. Just about every wreck out there is covered with the little varmints.
BTW that was us that pull up to the dock in the Cape while you were waiting for your friend.

Lion fish are everywhere on every spot (public and private) that I have dove.

About 3 years ago, I never saw one lion fish. So that just goes to show their reproduction rate. They are everywhere now and have no natural predetors.

Nice video!

My wife and I enjoy diving together. Is that your wife/girlfriend with you?

Here is a technique that I use that you may or may not be interested in.

After shooting an AJ, I push the shaft through and grab the shaft on both sides of the fish's head. I keep my hands close to the head, straddle the fish, and cross my legs. I can then steer the AJ like a motorcycle!

Yep, I have probably been doing jiu-jitsu and wrestling too long...but it does give me a lot of leverage...and a free ride!

Great video Jeremy. Alyssa is a stone cold killer!! The lion fish jail break is freaking hilarious!!! How do you like the spectra? Looks like it is very anti-tangle. I gotta try some...

I havn't used the spectra yet....Toner did tho, maybe he has some feedback?

With respect to the capt's the wreck will go unnamed.

Thanks for the compliments!

That works well. Done that quite a few times myself.
