Re: Anybody else done diving till spring?

I agree that there are multi-factorial reasons for fish decline or improvement. Just letting you know my observations. And people whether commercial or recreational are putting a ton of hook and...

Re: Anybody else done diving till spring?

I'm thinking as much of the charter and other hook and line guys that are working / fishing in the winter blowing up the hogs hook and line. Now that they've all learned that trick, and the hogs are...

Re: Anybody else done diving till spring?

Just observations over the last 4 plus years of diving mostly 35-75 with some deeper from time to time. Gags have gotten better. Red snapper have gotten tremendously better. Legal red grouper can...

Re: Anybody else done diving till spring?

I grew up here too but just late to pick it up. Getting my kids involved as kids to make up for it.

Re: Anybody else done diving till spring?

We'll dive all through the winter if we get days with decent seas and we can put a boat together. We did a couple nice dives a couple weeks ago and shot a good number of decent hogs. I can enjoy my...

Re: Current Vis - Tampa Bay Region (Homosassa to Sarasota)

We did 2 dives yesterday in 70-75 feet out of JP. Viz was probably up to maybe 20 feet. Horizontal was better. Silted up real easy though. First dive was real fishy. Lots of hogs and a variety...

Re: Paralenz Underwater Compact Camera

What's funny is those are regular flashlights. It was so dark under the red tide that the Paralenz color adjustment made the flashlights look like pink lasers.

Re: Paralenz Underwater Compact Camera

I've been using one for about 6 months. It's a little buggy with the software. I've had some issues with overexposure, which is frustrating. The company is good at responding for service or help...

Re: Current Vis - Tampa Bay Region (Homosassa to Sarasota)

65 foot out of JP was 10-15 foot viz. Big lobster, nice lion fish and small hogs. Hook and line was nice too.

Re: Current Vis - Tampa Bay Region (Homosassa to Sarasota)

We're going to take a look Sunday too. We've had a week of very reasonable seas and no rain. We're bringing a bunch of fishing poles and bait, though.

Re: lookunderwater.com video thread

It's a pretty cool website. I'd really be curious to see not just the structure but what we saw at different locations and times of year. It would be hugely helpful. But very few of my videos are...

Re: Recommendations for fabricator of dive ladder/platform in NPR/Clearwater area?

I have had two ladder issue in the last few years due to my own stupidity (but that's not important right now). I found and used JTR Marine Enterprises in St. Pete. Small family owned shop. They...

Re: Red Tide Hogfish Dive

Yeah that was my brother. I don't have to shoot all the fish but I didn't want him to get away.

Red Tide Hogfish Dive

A couple weeks ago we did a dive through red tide in 60 feet of water out of St. Pete. I'd never done it and it was very interesting. Red tide went about 15 feet with zero viz and water and fish...

Re: 36" Cobia minimum size proposed - thoughts?

Have seen exactly what moose described in St Pete Clearwater over the last 4 years. Gags, AJs and ARS doing better. Hogs worse. Red grouper way worse. I doubt I’ve seen 5 Cobia of any size in...

I can’t find one to save my life which means I probably don’t need an increase but also maybe we do need an increase so I see more

Re: Video: 9/17/18 | Ledges and The RJ Thompson

I've only used the DCC once so far and used the Blue. The video came out crazy blue. After that I haven't used either. You're getting better light in your videos than I am though so maybe I'll try...
