Nice haul! Why don't you bring some tails for your fellow dive club members at Hooters tomorrow night?

Nicely done. If I came up with nine tails, I wouldn't care that I didn't shoot any fish!

Nice haul!!! How big were your bugs? We got a couple of 4 #er's
2 weeks ago out on Bethel Shoals. We docked in Ft Pierce for three nights while we hunted the area. We didn't see a whole lot of fish either. We did see some monster Cobia....one is still swimming around with one of my buddies shafts still in him. Vis was real poor but we saw 6 Mantas in one day. That was pretty cool.

I am holding a 6 and a 6.5lb Bug.Next time you dive Ft.Pierce
contact me and I will e-mail you #for the 70'area NE and
straigth East out of the Inlet and # to the Beach N. Vis is a
problem in Ft.Pierce due to the groundswells from the NE.
5' is very common in the Spring.

Hey Fishkilla.
Shane is a hell of lobster graber.With the speargun he
can't hit the broad side of a big barn.Good guy to have
on the boat.Shane and I been diving for 10 plus years out
of my boat.We are going this weekend again.

yeah man i've met shane. he turned my group of lobster slayers to the ft pierce area about 3 years ago. before that we used to go play with those baby bugs down in the keys. ever since the first drop i did on a ledge in ft pierce i've been sold on that area. that vis down there is a double edged sword. bad vis lets those bugs get that big over there but it sure can ruin a dive weekend. last time i was there in september it was top to bottom with a few bugs around each ledge.
