Beaches closed. We're all going to die.

Each year, many people die from the Flu. No, that's not funny, but closing off beaches and open water is ridiculous. I would think being in wide-open areas would be safe or at least safer than other areas they have closed down.

Re: Sebastian or Canaveral Vis

Please, share with us what is your professional background and experience in epidemiology you are basing this opinion on? COVID-19 is much more contagious than a flu. Real case mortality is currently unknown however in Italy it reaches 8%. In my professional opinion ( I am a trauma surgeon with added qualifications in critical care) our local government is not aggressive enough in closing any areas where person to person transmission can occur. Currently, there is over 50 000 reported infected people in NY and the real number is probably much higher. You are entitled to your own opinion however I am the one on the frontline of the incoming deadly pandemics, expected to manage number of patients exceeding resources available in the hospital. Are you planning to come and help me when we are going to run put of masks, gloves and ventilators?

I have a feeling in the next 6 weeks (when Grandma and Grandpa die) in the hallway of the hospital with no room,bed,equipment,or ****s given. Maybe the local experts won’t be joking so much. Thank you for your hard work and keep it up.

Re: Sebastian or Canaveral Vis

Went out of Sebastian 3/26 to 55 ft. First stop vis 5-8, second stop 10-12, third 5-8. We ended up with 17 lobster, 8 snapper, 1 or 2 trigger. Went out again on 3/30 and in 55 ft vis was poor so we moved out to 80 ft for the next to and had over 20 ft of vis for both dives. Ends with 10 nice fish and 4 good lobster. For both days almost all of the Lobster we’re several pounders. Not one short. It was odd. Temps in 55 were around 70 on bottom, high 60’s on 80 feet. Great diving.
