Exploring

Took HeadHunter out for several days and found some cool stuff. Speared and caught some nice fish and thought I'd post a few pics. Waters a little screwy out deeper, cooler and cloudier than normal. Shootable but not ideal. We did manage to take some killer vid's.
Planning on showing those at the 2014 Blue Wild. I will post a few screen captures when I get a little time.

Oh and by the way, I drove 3 Lionfish spines deep into my calf and the result was........interesting.....lets just say it wasn't enjoyable. I would strongly suggest that all divers out here that interact with the bottom, have a way of producing hot water/heat on their boats. It sucked with the hot water, but I'm sure it would have been much worse without it.

Here we go with the pics....

Re: Exploring

Here's a screen capture off a deeper dive. We'd dove this spot back in 2007 and had wanted to return and film it. Finally managed to get there and re-dive it, pretty cool huh? Not every day you find one of these just laying around.

Re: Exploring

Another screen capture, deep steel commercial boat in around 400'. Instruments still on the dash, kinda thought provoking while swimming around it. I'm going to put some effort into trying to discover it's story.
