Started off a rough yr up here especially compared to last spring but it really turned around the last couple of weeks. Hopefully it continues.
Thats how i roll. I only really have the weekends unless I take off or work from home and jump in early. Anyone down to meet up and dive this Friday morning? Just came back from San Diego and want to shoot more shit

ps - and i second the preference of the forum format for discussion. The FB format is designed for only quick and shallow conversations.
Exactly...it really dumbs down the conversation or argument when people can't expand on what they are talking about not to mention making it super difficult too follow. I love the the couple word funny sarcastic jab but it boils it down into nothing but little jabs where all the ideas and value gets lost along the way.

Still hit or miss on little packs of them but let's go!


I'm looking at jerseymudsnipers avatar and I've become obsessed with the full skeleton mounts on IG.... I'm thinking about getting a beetle colony going and having a go at stripping a few fish to mess with this winter. Anyone do this before?

Fish no but i've had beatles being a taxidermist. They are ok outside. My problem is i never needed them enough to keep warm in winter. They smell and i didnt want them in shop or near house.

Yeah, I have area outdoors where I would keep them just for the summer. Try and get the bones clean then store bones until middle of winter to mess with.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

Just boil it 5-10 mins everything falls of the bones, brush it with old tooth brush and then dry it

Re: Daily Vis report thread

That some pretty nice work. I did something similar with a deer skull in November for a Euro mount and did the same thing, was just longer and needed more time put into cleaning it.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

The boiling yellows the fish bones so you don't get that stark white and I was going to try to do whole skeleton with the all the little bones. The more I look into the beetles though it's looking less fun. I remember them as a little kid getting into stretched fur so I figured bam this is super simple. The more I read about getting a good colony going and having to dry the fish first it's looking more like a setup a spot for next yr thing. I have to work out drying the fish somewhere in the sun away from getting hammered by the birds or carried off by critters too.

Manasquan

Manasquan Inlet North was 6-8' today at high tide, no sun. I passed on a nice eel. The rod and reelers further out on the jetty were pulling in abies but I didn't see any in the inlet. Good dive under a dark grey sky. I think I may have spied a sheepshead in the shadows, so many fat taug it's hard to tell sometimes.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

You could try it with a fish, bit I've had luck burying a hog skull to strip the meat off the bone. It would have to be summer and you would want to do it far from the house.
