Hi Steve
From the bulging eyes (of the fish) I guess you were fishing, rather spearing? Any idea of the viz? Thanks Richard

The wetsuit, carbon fiber fins, dive watch, spearfishing hat, hogfish, bullet holes in the fish, and post on a spearfishing site kinda made me think they were spearing. ;-)

I'm just messing around. Certainly coulda been fishing. Maybe the eyes were popped out from the use of a stringer.

Nice haul!

Good detective work! Lol!
Some was freediving, some was scuba. Towards the afternoons the water murked up and we were down to 10ft of vis. Dont really care to freedive 90ft in that murk!

Depends where Richard. The further north we went and in the afternoons we were down to a hazy 10ft. Down towards stuart we had several mornings of top to bottom.
