Holy cow! If i saw a trigger that big i think I would swim the other way. That is a monster trigger!

Wow...big ass triggers...

If one of those triggers takes a bite, it will leave a mark.

That's the Get'em dive club's fish that I mentioned on the middle ground square tails thread a while back. Their biggest trigger went 13-7, the one pictured is only 10lbs...! Amberjack 94, 74, 71, they had a 84 Cobia too. My 71lb aj, didn't place... Great fish guys and congrats on winning the rodeo again.

Those triggerfish could eat the grouper we have around here.

That was a fantastic trip. The shooters were all "Git em" members.

Stan, That is the picture of the 13-7 Trigger that I shot. Had to tie him off at 220....................

I am curious about your equipment for these kind of dives. I see that most of the spearing on the rigs are below the 150 range.
Are doubles the order of the day or just large singles with stage or pony? What about average bottom times or are these bounce dives.
Curious minds want to know!

Aluminum 80s and sometimes a pony bottle, get out the boat and back in it as soon as possible. no camping out at 200ft, get the job done and get back on the boat. the more dives you get in a day the more fish you see which means the more fish you kill. all that double tanks and stage bottles are not necessary for this type of diving, shit like that is what gets people in trouble. if you spend too much time on the bottom you get bent. hope this helps.

Well said, J-Bone. No camping out.

Damn, i am impressed with the gun holder in that boat. Maybe i am just a newby but that is cool as hell!
