Lionfish hunter in SW florida?

Are there any lionfish hunters in SW Florida (Ft. Myers -Sarasota) that could use another experienced LF killer on their boat? I live in Punta Gorda. I am a PADI dive master & TDI rebreather certified, former Mote and NOAA marine biologist. I can split expenses and I'm generally available and have all my own gear.

WHY NOT?
Besides the threat they pose,,,,
they are REALLY good eating!!!
And..
The % of yield is higher than most any other fish..
Oh...did I mention...they are REALLY EASY to shoot!

Too cool I guess. Shooting lionfish doesn't have the "chest thumping" appeal that some people need. Wonder what they are gonna do when there is nothing left to shoot but lionfish?

I'm sure you will do a great job hunting those lion fish. We will leave plenty for the folk that enjoy it

In some ways I'm glad we don't see many down in my AOE - but when I do I nail them and eat them. If we had more of a problem in the depths I usually dive I'd have no problem with taking you out with us.

I am interested in if you find someone to go out with as well. I'd definitely help split costs and clean up too. I live in Port Charlotte. Let me know!!!
