Re: Looking to buy used Steel 100+ HP tanks

Is this still true? I know that this was the "word on the street" a decade ago, but I went to faber's website and it says not to overfill. I called a dive shop down in FLA and they said that they...

Going to the Abacos for the first time in a couple of weeks. Is there anything that we shouldn't be eating over there other than cudas (I don't eat them anyway)? Are all of the larger...

Re: Tinted Lenses on Masks

I dive with a tinted/mirror mask and when I pop up to the surface, they act as sunglasses on a really bright day. Helps my eyes relax a bit.

Re: Polespear Recommendation???

Thanks for the recommendations! I ended up going with a couple of the Gatkus and a Mako, and just picked up a couple different tip options for each.

I normally shoot a gun, but I'm going to the Abacos this summer with some friends and I want the right gear. I'm horrible with a pole spear (only used them like once or twice) and they were the...

Re: Hogfish

Hogfish in the keys is one of the best examples of "growth overfishing" there is (e.g. as soon as it's legal, it's dead). It's not hard to see that the "typical" harvested fish is barely above legal...

Re: Feds approve new Hogfish regulations

You don't dive in the keys. There is no question that there is "growth overfishing" down there.

Moving the size limit UP is the RIGHT answer... But it should have been done YEARS ago at a...

Re: Have you speared another spearo?

I'm sorry, but Gerald Perry is right. I've you've ever speared anyone, you are a complete dumbass and you should never carry any sort of weapon again. A spear gun is a gun and if you are not smart...

Re: Bringing fish back from the Bahamas

Those are the laws in the Bahamas last I was there. It was written on the back of the fishing permit.

Re: Feds approve new Hogfish regulations

Also, they are going to 17" minimum limit in GA-NC which is more than reasonable. 2 per person there.

Re: Feds approve new Hogfish regulations

They should notch it up over years... Going from 12 to 16 in the keys will basically shut it down... They should gradually increase the size.

Re: Congratulations Gregg! New Executive Director of South Atlantic Council

Gregg is a nice guy and all, but he is a part of the old blood that has been pushing MPAS for 20+ years now. Why is it a good thing to promote someone who hasn't had an original idea in 20 years? ...

Re: Commercial Hogfish in NC, SC, GA...

Commercial divers... How many boats?

So, do you think that the 69%/31% split is even? I don't think those commercial boats operate up here the entire year, but the recreational guys are always...

Re: Commercial Hogfish in NC, SC, GA...

10 commercial divers or dive boats? What do you mean by "well represented"? You mean, you think the split 69% to 31% is accurate?

Re: Recreational Harvest of Hogfish in South Atlantic Waters Closes on August 24, 201

Don, thanks for the clarification. I'm still confused as to how they came up with 69% for commercial in my region (GA-NC). Are there really that many commercial dive boats operating up this way? ...

Re: Recreational Harvest of Hogfish in South Atlantic Waters Closes on August 24, 201

Re: Recreational Harvest of Hogfish in South Atlantic Waters Closes on August 24, 201

Summerland Key, it seems that the SAFMC believes that the commercial guys kill 69% of the hogfish in the SAFMC (GA-NC) region. They are discussing new allocations of 69% commercial and 31%...
