Homosassa 6-24-21 spearing

The plan was to go out to 50' to 60' but it got bumpy so we stopped in 30' shallow reefs. Vis was 25 plus until the tide started in and the current started ripping. Vis dropped to 15 or so. Spent all...

Re: Anclote 6/20

Nice haul. The last carbo I've shot (or seen) was maybe 10years ago. We did an easy limit of hogs Saturday, they seemed way more plentiful than the last couple of years.

Re: Out of Homosassa Saturday 8-25-18

Your day is coming soon Grey, looking at my calendar now to plan dive trips for the rest of the warm weather. Maybe into early Nov.

I know I owe you a trip and a ride on a cat boat.

Re: Out of Homosassa Saturday 8-25-18

My wife's camera has a good strobe setup that brings out the natural colors. The camera also "sees" much more than the human eye.

Re: Looking to buy used Steel 100+ HP tanks

Eric, I went to HP 100s last year. Love them, longer bottom time and you can ditch 7 lbs of weight.

My wife is our dive photographer and anchor salvage champion. She likes to remind us that she is doing environmentally beneficial things while we are murdering fish =)
