Re: Do you want to beach/kayak dive next weekend?

First lobster dive of the season last Friday. Hundreds of them all over the reefs. It was a struggle just sorting through them all to find the legal ones.

Re: Sucker Fish Don't Be One

Got suckered my first charter in Florida. Haven't even moved yet, but flew down here to check things out. Hired a sport charter in Lauderdale, right next to Las Olas. I checked the weather, and...

Re: New hogfish regulations start 8/24/17

Any size limit is tricky with a spear. It'll take some getting used to, but it's not impossible to do. Maybe have a 1 fish over slot limit? Slot limits just makes so much more sense in this situation...

Re: New hogfish regulations start 8/24/17

Agree. South Florida has lots of small hogs everywhere, but not many with size. I also feel like they should've put a slot limit instead of a minimum size limit. It's really S. Florida and especially...

Re: Recall notice - we could have had a dead diver yesterday

I always do gear check the night before. I also had some old Aqualung BC I had on loan from a buddy that had a broken schrader valve that caused it to stick open. In my OW class, I sort of remember...

Re: Do you want to beach/kayak dive next weekend?

Cold day of diving out there. Pulled out a couple, most of them were small. Trying to teach a buddy how to team up on a hole, but it's hard trying to un-train old habits.

Re: Do you want to beach/kayak dive next weekend?

Couldn't win every time. Got my first slipper though. Missed a hog at point blank range. Need to practice shooting the gun more.

Re: Do you want to beach/kayak dive next weekend?

Always open to more dive buddies. Just have all your gear and know what to do. Don't want to be responsible for anyones safety.

Re: Hogfish

+1.

If the whole purpose behind this is to let fish get bigger then we need the bigger hogs around to pass on the genes. The problem right now isn't a low population of hogs. It's that the hogs...

Re: Do you want to beach/kayak dive next weekend?

I live down here, so I'll be around. Most likely I'll be dedicated to collecting more lobster before the season closes. Limited out yesterday after finding a good hole. Took me maybe 1.5 hours of...

Re: Hogfish

If you dove for 16 hours in Lauderdale and didn't see a hog, you're doing something wrong or incredibly unlucky. Lauderdale is my normal diving spot. There's a lot of hogs around this time of year,...

Re: New Nautilus LifeLine Marine Rescue GPS

From the sounds of it, this is just normal DSC protocol. I own the original Lifeline VHF. The radio range is only 2 miles, but it can hop from radio to radio on other boats. The limit is 34 miles, so...

Re: New Hogfish Rules ??

People will shoot what the regs say they can shoot. It's just incredibly easy to shoot hogs in S. Florida. It's good that the fisheries management has created sectors within Florida, because we have...

Re: New Hogfish Rules ??

Slight tangent, but I think accessibility is also a part of the problem. Hogfish inhabit shallow reefs under 30 feet and their main defense is to find a seafan and hide. They're too easy a prey for...

Re: Do you want to beach/kayak dive next weekend?

We just swam from the beach. I was concerned that we would have trouble with the kayaks if the wind picked up. It was a struggle just to drag the float back to shore when it did. Didn't bring Jason,...

Re: Do you want to beach/kayak dive next weekend?

Did a beach dive this morning for 3 hours before the front hit. Found another lucky lobster hole with 9 bugs in it. Then 12:30 rolled around and the wind kicked up to a steady 15 knots and we called...

Re: No dive flag fine

Nothing wrong with the law on paper. Problem is FWC doesn't enforce the existing laws. I haven't seen anyone get punished for encroaching the keep out zone of a dive flag. It's also difficult to...

Re: Are safety courses for Spearfishing/free-diving necessary?

This was my situation 2 years ago. PADI OW certified, dove for 2 years while mainly lobster hunting while dabbling with spearfishing. Finally realized that freediving is a far more efficient method...

Re: Hog Fish Rule In Affect Jan 1st

Federal guys like to be harsh on new restrictions to be on the safe side. I'm sure it will loosen up over time.

Re: Do you want to beach/kayak dive next weekend?

I did, but I might not be able to go that day (so says the wife). My buddy won STA 1 though.
