Ponce Inlet 8-6-22

Does nobody use this forum anymore? I have been out of diving for 7 years, so I haven't been around. But I came back in preparation for my recent trip and saw no posts by anyone except jfjf... where did everyone go??

As mentioned, I sold my boat in 2015, and thus lost my ability to do what I love, which is dive offshore. I changed that in July and bought a boat, and I could not wait to get back out there. Saturday was our maiden trip on the new Gator Bait.

Dove 65 feet, our old honey hole. Ocean was just what I needed on top, pretty calm, sun and blue sky. The bottom, not as much. 69 degrees, snotty water, viz was 10 feet or so. But the boat managed 8 lobster. But even if I had just gotten one, I was SO happy to have gotten back out there!

I scared them all away. I think they were all intimidated by my outstanding videos- heaven knows they never comment on them.

BTW. I'm still an Ahole!

Not many are active. Just a handful of people post, but more people just look and no comment. That's my opinion.

You're definitely right. I can see tons of people have read my thread, so obviously people are still coming here. Just nobody posts reports anymore... thats too bad because those reports (when accurate and honest) can save people time and money!
