Re: Spearfishg Miami May 2019. Advice?

I used to live there. Miami is pretty decimated in terms of there being fish to spear. But you can find stuff shallow on the grass flats and patch reefs. If you go onto the main reef 30 to 100 ft...

Re: Aother diver bitten. miami

I think this sport is unfortunately getting too popular. I went back to the keys earlier this winter and my usual sports holding fish were all completely decimated.

Re: Garrapata?

Whats the impetus for preventing access to a beach whatsoever. MPAs is one thing but not letting someone set foot on the beach period seems drastic.

Re: A Preventable Jet Ski Death

^ do you keep the epirb on you in the water (or on your float?)

I've considered getting one but wonder about the logistics of diving with it.

Re: Tethering Shark Shield to the tip of fin w/o drilling hole in fin?

i think i will try 5200, glueing a small (2-3 cm) flat piece of plastic onto the corner of the fin, with a hole and line through the edge of the flat piece of plastic.

The fins have an epoxy coat...

Unfortunately, the edge/end of the fin is not flat (because of the rails on the side going all the way to the end and the odd shape at the end). This rail is actually very soft rubber, so it might...

Re: Tethering Shark Shield to the tip of fin w/o drilling hole in fin?

This raises another issue I wanted to ask. Even using a tether ...or doing what you have suggested causes the cord to tap against your fin as you swim...making noise and scaring the fish.
