Re: Do I shoot or do I run!!!

This post is the reason I got involved in SB. I heard about a huge fish this guy shot at 425ft & had to take a look. So much has happened since then...what a blessing. This board and now others have become a family type thing since then. Kinda cool to read over it and see all the comments from yester year!

Re: Do I shoot or do I run!!!

Hearing Dan tell that story in person was one of the best parts of the Blue Wild Expo- both times I've attended. I'm sure it would be just as good the third time if I could go this year.

WOW!!! To plan a dive that deep, then shoot a giant and wrestle with him at 400 feet, go through the deco and all is an amazing feat. Glad to see you got perfect conditions for the dive.

"Everything looks bigger underwater". . . I can't even imagine how huge that thing must have looked! Way to go!

Seriously something like that could make an excellent spearfishing video to sell. give me a ring if you need a manager for such an endevor

you shot this right about the time I joined this site. to date nothing as epic as this has been done again.

Hey Bill, I heard the story during the 2009 Blue Wild. The third time was great during the 2010 Blue Wild. A lady on the audience asked Dan if he had any BIG FISH stories to tell! (I'm sure she said: HOLY SHIT, after Dan told the story)

Ack! Dan's presentation was one of the main talks I wanted to attend at the expo and unfortunately due to some unfortunate events that morning with a certain Nazi towing company at the lot next to the hotel and an innocent friends Jeep - I arrived a half hour too late.

Oh well - Dan you are just going to have to shoot another one!! Hell, i would bet you could get a major network to foot most of the tab for video rights!
