Re: Uss monitor - then and now

Nice that you caught a weather break. I'm up in the Banks now for vacation; wind's been howling out of the south since Friday and my dives on the Under Pressure this week were scrapped.

Re: Lion fish population declining?

I think it's pretty clear that concentrated hunting can keep a lid on them. I notice that when I dive on well-trafficked reefs like Juno Ledge I have an extremely hard time finding any. It's only...

Re: Paralenz, New Underwater Optimized Action Camera, Aims at GroPro

Saw this yesterday in one of my usual dive shops and asked the staff about it. Apparently the first batch had defective end caps that resulted in flooding, but they were able to send those back and...

Re: Hammerhead Sharks ~ Mermaid Frenzy

On the FL east coast, three nautical miles out. Water depth can vary depending on how wide the shelf is at that point; off Juno Beach you might be in 100 ft of water and off Martin County the same...

Re: Nazi Germany's Most High-Tech Submarine Has Been Found

Re: Lost scuba diver off the rigs in Los Angeles.

Re: Lost scuba diver off the rigs in Los Angeles.

Re: Any news on diver attacked by shark?

Is there anything backing this up? So far in this thread no news articles have been posted and it seems to boil down to hearsay.

Re: Shark Bite

I'd say you're mistaken on that; I know of a few boats and fishermen working in the general area.

The reason they don't target the feed sites is probably because it's not worth the effort. The...

Re: Lost Divers Jupiter

From what I've heard, at least two of the divers had Lifeline units and activated them, and that was how the PBSO found them as quickly as they did. In the video it looks like no less than 4 boats (2...

Re: Shark ID help Please.

Wish someone had taken a shot of the head; that would have cleared it up pretty easily. Hard to tell from what's posted, but the two most likely options seem to be a basking shark or a megamouth....

Re: Two surfers bitten by sharks an hour apart in Florida

Yeah, I think the shark was a lot smaller than six feet and it likely was a blacktip or spinner - the typical "ankle biters" found in the surf around Volusia. To the average touron on the beach, all...

Re: Two surfers bitten by sharks an hour apart in Florida

Cumiskey told WESH that the shark was around 6 to 6 1/2 feet long and that it “definitely bit and shook one or two times” before letting him go. "A sizable chunk was missing from my foot. Well, not...
