Re: Lion fish derby-cape canaveral

The water will still be warmish until late November. Earlier is better, so if you can pull it together before Thanksgiving you should have better weather. Pull in more help if necessary. Anyone else...

Re: Hurricane Hole?

You'll want it fairly available after the storm. Bugs walk in bad weather so when you find them you can limit out on the ones too big to gauge. Generally the Ocean on the SE FL coast is divable (with...

Re: Another hammerhead attack

GOM hammerheads aren't smart enough to realize we aren't on the menu.

Re: Lion fish derby-cape canaveral

Check with the local Jaycees to see if a chapter will help with the "first annual" and potentially have a few members "adopt" the program to give it a longer life. The JCs put on similar type events...

Good vid.
Grabbing the throat works a bit better, but I have subdued a few by filling it's mouth with my arm to cut down water flow. Hard on the arm and suit, but works in a pinch.

Re: Help in west palm

Bugs are where they want to be depth wise, but generally the farther you can run from an inlet the less picked over the spots are. There are a bunch of good hunting spots on the third reef between...

Mini-season safety record?

Did we actually end a mini-season with no fatalities or serious injuries? I haven't seen much on the news fees about injuries this year.
