Mermaid STONES KINGFISH...fisherman yells

Why are the fishermen so cranky? I wave, smile & try to stay out of their way

I got separated from John on this dive but came across this small school of kingfish & he said I took a long shot....seemed closer but the only shot I had!

Twas a risky lucky great shot. The vid can stand on it's own w/o the click bait title though.

I guess you could say all my shots are "Lucky"

I like to think, that I dive with the best & he teaches me pretty good & I have so much to learn & loving every moment of it!

Also it could be just the speargun...it is really nice!

Oh... this title was 100% accurate NO BAIT! (I just left the fishering boats out of our video)


Thanks for watching

You should've included it. After all, it was one of things I was hoping to see. Don't be disingenuous. The video can stand on it's own.

Nah... get out there..you can see for yourself. They rant some of the weirdest things at the dive boats and other fishing boats... I sit back and find some of it comical

I like all of our titles... some of them are great baits & the videos even greater to match!

I've had communications with other boats as to when/if they're leaving...yet I've never been yelled at. My courtesy has always prevailed, but then again, there is always the random asshole. Fortunately, I've missed them or my courtesy has prevailed.

Sorry.... None of our shots are taken on wide angle...this is a true long shot & it was the only shot I had...they moving away from me quickly!

GoPro 6 linear fov (fisheye effect removed by using linear)

Linear field of view captures a straight horizon with a more natural perspective. This mode eliminates the barrel distortion (fish-eye effect) typically captured by your GoPro's wide-angle lens, without compromising image quality.

thanks for watching
