Re: Nassau Conch?

Awesome advice, thanks all!

If anyone has any good guides they can recommend let me know!

Also that freezer trick sounds great, very interested in bringing back a shell.

I think this might be a sign that we need to update spearboard. I notice we're using an older 3.8.1 Vbulletin, currently they are shipping 4.0 for $195:

Re: a question about swb

I agree with the clarification that it is the change in depth.

People do pass out from 5 foot depths though, particularly in the pool practicing without a spotter.

Re: NorCal: Floatline and gun marking

That is a great link, thanks! Looks like it is unavailable for a few weeks yet. Went to Sports Chalet yesterday but all they had was 50' in black.

Thanks all for the great advice!

Re: NorCal: Floatline and gun marking

Thanks for all the advice. One more question:

Those who have used the homemade floatline and the store bought, was the extra money worth it?

I've had red rock crab a few times and never had a bitter taste, though i don't drink either so that may have something to do with it.

Re: Why do we have a abalone season when we can only take 24 a year

That has always been my guess as to why.

I don't mind the July break, as i've had some of my best spearing experiences then. I never end up on the bottom staring at a ling while holding my iron!
