Dave, thanks for the report. Looking forward to shooting in your waters soon. What was the average depth of your dives?
10-21-2002, 08:27 AM
sweeet report Dave!!!! :D lol...big guns and goin' down...lol :D
Thanks for the kick in the ass :eek: ... I'm now registered....and yes I've been a lurking whore for on both the FS Forum and this mac daddy spearboard.com for a while now.
Diving off of Homassasa in 40-51 feet of water is a nice change from the usual 90-100 out of the Cape. Gotta love that extended bottom time!! :D :D
I'll give Wahoo Too (Bob) a call to remind him to post the pics. Overall we had a great day of shooting with lot's of fish. It was a good practice round before I head out to the MG's. I don't know if the cooler weather has brought the fish in closer or what but the bottom was alive with fish. I'm a little tired today after 4 dives but it's a great feeling man.
Thanks for an awesome day of shooting... I think I need another practice round before our Nov. 1-3 trip.
10-21-2002, 10:55 AM
I 'am the one that is willing to give up my seat for that run . Got these BUS tics and sure would like to go . They are VIP with a bus ride ,tail gate party and a night in a resort for FREE some other shit too but if no one takes my seat on the NOV 1-3 trip then I will be in the GROUNDS any way and it won't matter
DON"T EVEN THINK IT YOU GUYS BECOUSE IF I GO TO THE M.G.
MY WIFE IS TAKING HER GIRL FRIEND!!
Now is a great time to do the GROUNDS if any of you would like the chance send a e- mail and its done
PS you would be real lucky to get a seat till after x-mas

Dabull Trouble! Great report and THANKS FOR A GREAT TRIP on Saturday! It was a pleasure to dive with someone who knows what they're doing and loves spearfishing as much as Merk and I . I'm pumped that we've started meeting fellow spear slayers on this forum!
Merk and I both had a great time and the huntin' was excellent!!! Got home around 11pm and was sore as all hell yesterday (I'm smiling when I say that because it meant it was a great trip). Still can't believe that you trumped me with that gigantic 'go! I thought I had you with a 5 - 6 lber until you brought up that monster.
I sunk my teeth into that 7 lb flounder last night for dinner. TASTY!!!!!
Just to brag on Dabull Trouble a bit. I saw him line up with his new big boy gun on a hognose from about 15 feet and stoned him dead!!!! Very impressive. Puts my 48" to shame with the range you're getting. Great shooting! Looks like that new gun will be tuned in before your trip to the MG. Thanks again and I can't wait to get out there again and slay 'em with you!!!
Dave - I'll try to get some pictures from the trip posted here today. I tried to attach one to this reply. I'll see how it works.
10-22-2002, 02:40 PM
hey wahoo glad you guys had a good time.glad you also registered for this forum,you can get a ton of info off of here.we have to get merc (brian) a new name.i know he can come up with something to do with fishing or diving.dont brag on me to much about the new gun.i missed a lot of shots on the first dive.if you noticed i only came up with 3 fish and you guys both had full stringers.yes those were some nice goes.gonna go again on saturday.you got a spot if you want it.i think merc is gonna go also.if you cant go just let me know as soon as you know so i can try to get one more person or maybe 2.if you have trouble posting pictures e mail scott or capt jay on this forum or put a post up and they will tell you how.i dont have a clue how to do it.thats why i dont post pictures of any of my trips.i knoow there,s probably some non believers out there about the big goes so the pics wont lie.i also ate some of the goes last night.blackened on the grill,man it was almost better than eatin pussy..capt dave with a big gun and goin down
10-22-2002, 04:07 PM
dabulltrouble - I'm working with Scott to figure out which Server I can dump the pictures onto so people can refer to them and check them out. Hopefully we'll have them ready in a day or so. Hang in there. The huge go's proof is in the Pictures!!!!
I definitely want to go this weekend but might be stuck at the house :( . I'll let you know by tomorrow so you can line up a few others instead. I know Merk wants to go!
10-22-2002, 04:14 PM
Wahoo, I just sent you another email with some suggestions. But in the meantime, feel free to email the photos to me, and I'll put them up in this thread for you.
Yhoooooooo.... DT...... I'm in for this Saturday just let me know how many people are going so I know what tanks to bring.
10-22-2002, 09:32 PM
Hey Dave, Glad to hear about your great trip and new gun!!I knew when Joe and I were up there you were thinking about gettin' a new gun. Glad you did and glad it's working out! Give me a call and come on down when you get a chance, or let me know if you have an opening on the boat. Can't make this weekend. Going out in the morning I'll let you know how it goes. Dan
10-22-2002, 10:28 PM
I got a report from a friend of mine that went over the Skyway today. Once in the morning and then he drove back over it this afternoon and both times it was smooooooth. Damn it's killin' me!! Good luck on your dive Dan!!
10-23-2002, 07:49 AM
Unfortunately :( I'm out for this weekend. Got some commitments at home to take care of. Hopefully I'll catch you on the next trip. Make sure you and Merk make up for my absense. I expect one huge flounder from each of you along with a limit of hogs & gags. Shoot 'em up and I'll be there on the next one.
I've tried to attach a picture of your big 'go with this post.
10-23-2002, 07:50 AM
Thanks for the help. I can attach one picture with each post so I'll post a few replies to send the pictures. I'm shrinking their size before sending them on the board so they don't eat up your server space.
10-23-2002, 07:51 AM
Damn, that pic looks friggin' cold.
10-23-2002, 07:57 AM
Good Stringers from Homossassa Last weekend. Merk with a fruitful dive!
10-23-2002, 07:58 AM
Dabull Trouble & Wahoo Too!
10-23-2002, 08:01 AM
dLock, If you thought the skyway was calm, check out our ride home from this past weekend.
10-23-2002, 08:08 AM
Hey Dave, looks like ya had a great trip and congrats on that yellow butted beauty your holding up in that last pic.I have seen one that looks just like it somewhere. Hope ya nail em on Saturday. I would be begging for a spot but since I'm hitting the MG on the JR II Nov.1 I have to save my pennies and rack up the brownie points with my wife this week-end.Hey Merk, are you going on that trip? I so I will meet ya then. Anybody else on the board going out on the Nov 1 MG trip?
10-23-2002, 08:13 AM
Great pics. That's what it's all about: A man, a gun, and his fish!
Yha, I'm going on the Nov. 1-3 trip. To bad you can't go this weekend, make sure you take care of those wifely duties. :D
Do you live in the Orlando area? Just curious since it would be a shame if we all end up driving to Steinhatchee.
Look forward to shooting with ya......Brian
10-23-2002, 10:36 AM
I live in the O-town area, specifically Maitland.It would be great to drive over with someone if possible but I don't have a vehicle big enough for two people and all the crap that has to go on one of these trips. I drove over with Interlude last trip and between the tanks (12), guns, gear, coolers, rods and such we filled his Suburban slam up. One thing I learned from that trip was bring BIG coolers.
10-23-2002, 10:54 AM
Make sure that cooler has a good cap on the drain hole.
You'll keep thinking about that great trips for months to come if you don't.
Nice pics guys. Man, those guns look good!
DubTrub, I'm sure your ready to hit some real hogs now!
Sounds like you already have a full load. I would like to chat about the GM trip if you don't mind.
send me an email with your number and I'll give you a call or give me a call at work.
10-24-2002, 09:40 AM
I'm so jealous of the MG trip, I can't stand it. Too bad I've got guests in town or I'd love to be there with ya'll!!! I hope you fill the coolers with huge hulking scaly beasts!!!
May your shots be straight and your fish all get stoned!
10-24-2002, 12:19 PM
easy wahoo,take a deep breath and just calm down.i promise i,ll give you a full report when we get back.hell i might even buy a digitel camera and give you pics to,this is capt dave with a large gun and goin down
