I keep waiting to see you ph a trigger. The video is absolutely ridiculous...Swarmed by snappers and grouper and you are shooting little, stinky triggerfish.. pretty damn sad.

You said it right. That is each and every dive up here for the last 8 years at least. I never posted much and didn't have video. Didn't want everyone from Florida coming here. But now it don't matter. This is why I have bitched so much about the snapper closure. It is ridiculous. Now the problem is everyone, including commercial boys are crushing the trigger population up here. The commercial guys are frothing at the mouth for May to get here, I can't wait to get my 1 grouper. :rolleyes:

Should send those vids to those over paid scientists that probably never go below! A picture is worth a thousand words. Just a thought

Awesome video Rob. Pretty incredible footage. Not to harp, I am all for sending the footage because I think the snapper population is better than they say, but if you send the footage to SAFMC I would not include the HUGE stringer full of triggers. I try not to be negative but it might make them think they are being over fished, same with the bugs. Maybe try cutting it in a way that it only shows the snapper and grouper? Either way, great stuff.

What a free for all!
You guys sure have a good fish stock up there.
Then again, 46 miles out! Thats like $200 in fuel alone!

Good vid and great work on the grabs!!

I thought about that too. But they know what is going on. Let them ban triggers and lobster too. Sea bass are now closed, red snapper, grouper and soon to be cobia and lobster. The only chance to get this crap stopped is for them to go completely bonkers with the closures, then maybe some state rep will get involved. I have commercial friends with gopros that are sending them the same videos. They see all the snapper and grouper and know the triggers are getting pounded and the bee liners have been pounded to death. How else are the commercial boys gonna get paid.

For sure, the sea bass population is larger than I have seen in the last 15 years up here and they too are closed. what a joke.

Robert D your the man! sweet video....If you run out of trigger fish recipes, I recomend using them to make chowder. Throw some lobster, shrimp, and clams in with it.....cant go wrong!

Last night I had a dream that I dropped on a wreck loaded with red snapper and gag grouper, but they were illegal to shoot. I had to push them out of the way to shoot triggerfish. Oh wait... :(

Nice triggerfish necklace.

Ouch, and it is only going to get worse...that being said, awesome video. Looks like one hell of a day. Huge stringer, nice bugs and enough snapper and grouper to fuel your dreams for a while.

We had a good time though. Would be alot more worth it if we could of shot some snapper and grouper.

High gas prices and ridiculous fishing closures = many people losing their job and much less revenue for the state of Florida.

No doubt. Guess it ain't that bad when divided by 4 or 5.
We are kinda spoiled around here but we pay for it in lack of fish in those numbers.

I have 3 planes in the area (within three miles). Not including the grubby.

Cool,I know of 2 others for sure but mostly we've found sanded over stuff.There's a lot of planes out there due to NAS and the carriers being here since WW2.Big snapper on those planes at times,cobia too:D.
