Oh shit! Perhaps I need to shoot Balckfin somewhere else than the shrimp boats. . . . Seeing pictures of those attacks made me so scared my dick crawled up my ass to hide like a @#$%^&* turtle.

Guess the memory of those cliff jumps was somewhat short-lived.
:D

I couldn't pull up the video of the surfer getting attacked, but the seals being eaten was impressive.

Just kidding. I'm still truying to figure out how to pull of the blackfin hunt-- and stay alive. When cliff jumping I wear a helmet. Controlled risk, not injury, is the rush. No way I'd dive near a great white!

I go back to my original post, if you dive behind a shrimp boat, you're ****ing nuts.

What's next, Boca Grande Pass?

My dad owned three boats when I was growing up,and if you see me behind one you better find the sombith that pushed me.

I've spent many a day sewing nets from where the sharks tore em up.

i've mentaly blocked those pics now so lets do it... and yes boca grande is next. not now but when the tarpon show up so we can take turns holding on to old hitlers dorsal fin. riding a 18ft hammerhead would make for some sweet video.

did anyone ever watch that animal planet special extreme encounters there was this guy that did just that free diving.they baited the hammers up then just jumped in, he must have rode that shark 100yds or better. the same guy also had his arm inhaled by a jewfish at some ridiculous depth I think they said 80
and had to wrestle that thing off.now thats nuts

I thought this board was to encourage more people to spear not scare the shit out of them.

I thought most divers always had a interest in sharks.especially spearers. No harm intended just thought I'd ruffle the lace on some of there panties!:D

Besides I just finshed Helldivers Rodeo and that's what those nuts went hunting for!!

I'm glad I didn't read this thread until today. My last dive on Thursday was as dusk was nearing. Looking at my computer, the dive ended at 6:00PM. It was in 111' in the Middle Grounds, and it was a weird feeling down there alone in fairly dark conditions. I was shooting hogfish and thought for a moment about how sharks like to feed at dusk, and with the dark conditions I wouldn't see it coming. Like someone said, you just try to be alert and block it out of your mind. If you're afraid or jumpy at depth you won't shoot well.

You look at those photos, and suddenly that shark protector gimmick doesn't seem like such a bad idea.

Stone crabs are thick on the bottom of Boca Grande Pass. The only down side is the constant buzz of propellers over your head...
