Early Spring Dive

I'm going through some old footage and put together a video of a dive I did back in March that was pretty entertaining. A good mix of fish and near the end of the dive, a hogfish that I shot swam under the ledge and speared a mangrove snapper.

Wow, that is very cool. Glad you were able to get that on video and thanks for sharing.

I've never seen a GOM lobster. How deep were you?

Also, that is an awesome dive ladder platform. What kinda cat is that?

Thanks. It was 85 feet of water and the boat is a 31 Renaissance Prowler. The dive setup is great on the boat.

Lucky bastard - the 31 RP is an AMAZING boat - wish I could afford one. I went out on a 246 once and it blew me away.

Re: Early Spring Dive

Whaaaat?! That's like a Hat-trick in spearfishing or something.
