Finally Made it Out!

Finally made it out for only my 3rd time diving since August. Not anything special fish wise but since nobody posts spearfishing pics anymore, I figured I'd throw a couple up. Went Sun with jfjf & jfjf Jr. out of Stuart. Had pretty good conditions for the area - no current and maybe 30 ft vis. Was trying out a new gun I got for Christmas and really like it. A Bleutec Raptor 115. Gun is very accurate and neutrally buoyant in the water. I hit every fish I shot at, stoning the majority of them. Jfjf Jr. had a pretty good day too and was going stoned fish for stoned fish with me until it was his turn to drive, then I pulled ahead. That's a 150qt cooler that big mangrove is hanging off. Those are just my fish in the pic. I think it was the 1st time I've ever shot a yellowtail snapper north of Jupiter in 18 yrs of diving.
