Description: Bill's account of the season's first blood
Reason for Nomination: Although Bill's posts are often rage-inducing to a selected few (or many) on the board, his trip reports are generally well received. This is due to the fact that they are well written, informative, inspirational and often times, injected with snarky humor and pretty pictures. As a result, any of his reports deserves to be nominated. This one stands out due to having the first reported white seabass of the season. Keep in mind, this is when the days were short and dreary, water was dirty and frigid. Most people have hunkered down in the comfort of their own home, munching on the last freshly caught lobsters; all the while waiting for an excuse to go diving again. In short, it was the report that launched a thousand ships.


Ill Second That!

Reason for Nomination: This report made me feel like I was there. The poster's enthusiasm really showed through his writing and prompted me to choose the same destination for my spearing vacation this past April. I enjoyed it so much that I'm going back in December.

Reason for nomination: Casey introduced a brand new diver from Ecuador to spear fishing for the first time, and on his first shot he got a legal ling cod! A classic example for all of us about how to introduce a new guy into the sport!

My other nominations for Kirby & ApneaAddict were removed, as the dates were outside the parameters for this segment. Regardless, they post great reports...

Geographic Region: West Coast
Description: Spearing lings & blacks on the north coast & a survival run in the boat back to port.
Reason for Nomination: North Star consistently delivers great trip reports that keep me stoked to dive frigid northern waters & risk permanent testicular hibernation. He's out enjoying the ocean with his family in the first quarter of the year, when I'm still on the ski slopes... He inspires me to want to get my kids into the sport!
