Middle Grounds Trip

Short video of my first Middle Grounds trip on new Tideline 365. We got a couple nice middle grounds hogs and mangos. Some pretty solid red grouper and a couple triggers as well. Not all fish are shown on the video. In particular Brian found a 10 pound plus hog and my spear that swam out of a hole that he had wedged himself in after I had to head up. Dive conditions were great. Perfect viz. Warm enough to wear a shorty only.

Re: Middle Grounds Trip

Rob, looks like you pretty much have the deck tank storage figured out. Great looking vis. Some nice fish went into the box.

Where did you buy/who built your tank racks?

Nice guy in Tarpon Springs. Has a number of items on his website but will do custom whatever you want.

Re: Middle Grounds Trip

I find blasting music in these videos annoying. Maybe you think it helps?

Re: Middle Grounds Trip

Hey Gary, I like them better with music. I know some people agree with me and some people disagree. But I'm just sharing because I like watching other people's videos and I assume I'm not alone. But I'm not monetizing them or trying to (can't do it with most music) so there's not really anything to help.

Re: Middle Grounds Trip

When Iíve been spearfishing I wasnít listening to music. I was hearing all kinds of underwater sounds. Like bubbles, crackling, divers grunting, screams when you get hit by a lion fish, screams when a fish bites you, etc. The music masks those sounds and takes away from the experience.

Re: Middle Grounds Trip

Yeah I don't listen to music when I spearfish either. I do like to though when I'm watching them. And since it's my video, I get to make it however I want. You don't like it. That's cool. No problem. Go ahead and post some of yours and I'll be happy to watch - and I won't even complain about how you choose to make them.

Re: Middle Grounds Trip

Or the headhunter videos. I cracked a gut when Dan and Kenny Moose were hunting together. Kenny stuck his arm in a hole to pull out a fish and it bit him. Screamed like a little girl.
