CA Scrubs Crush Texas Slugs (Photos + Video)

Miles, Errin, and I went out on the Southern Cross with Capt Keith Love back in April. The weather window was tight, but we were rewarded with beautiful conditions and lots of wahoo!

The sharks were everywhere and definitely keyed into our actions. We had to fight for nearly every fish.

We were in Texas for all of about 48 hours, but we had a blast. We took some of our catch in to a local restaurant and they cooked it up 3 different ways with all of the fixins'. I don't think that would fly in CA.

Nice fish! How close are you to them? In the video it looks like you could swim up and pet them.

It varied. Sometimes they'd cruise in really close, other times they'd stay further out.

If we dove as soon as we saw the fish, they generally would be wary of us and would stay 20-30+ feet out.

We found that if we stayed on the surface, they would come really close. Then you could slowly dive without spooking them for a shot.

The Ulusub crew crushing it! Nice job guys, you scored big time!

Suddenly the California fur bags we have to deal with here don't seem so bad after seeing those sharks all over the place chowing down on the fish!
