Homosassa spear trip 6-20-20

Barbara and I got together with our neighbor Eric to do some diving and spearfishing today.

Noaa report was accurate, seas were mostly 1ft or less. Water temp 84. Mild current and 30' visibility.

We dove two spots I had fished before but never dove, very fishy, more hogfish than I've ever seen in both places. There were quite a few gags but they were very wary, had to spend a lot of time stalking them. The interesting thing is the ARS. The was one large ARS on each reef. No schools, these guys must just be the stragglers left when the rest moved out to deeper water. There were mangrove snapper galore but we mainly ignored them, hogfish are easier to shoot and more tasty.

We had beautiful weather and found some new spots to explore. We were diving in 65' of water about 40 miles offshore. We ended up with 5 gag grouper, 1 red grouper, 1 red snapper, and 15 hog fish.

As usual Barb was our photographer and got some great shots.
