Re: Tool to cut yourself out of kelp quickly?

Re: Speargun used in criminal shooting incident

Re: Rare Baby Orca is a Headscratcher...

Thanks. My perception was that they were not as aggressive toward divers as GWS, but I would never knowingly go into the water when one (or a pod) was around.

Re: If you ever wondered about the true definition of "By Catch"

Well, he got well masticated even if he didn't get swallowed. Bet he had a story to tell the kids that evening.

Re: Lionfish can be good as spotters, before dinner

Nice when fish tell you by their actions that a larger fish has taken up residence in their spot.

Re: A Preventable Jet Ski Death

Thanks Bob. Wise words. Not many young people have the humility to listen to older, wiser counsel. Hope this gets through to somebody. May the family of this young man find comfort in their sorrow.
