Officially the season opened Aug 1st but I just made it out this weekend. Shot this 60# AJ at 145'. Thought I had stoned it but it came to life at 40' when I was trying to string him up. Knocked my mask off and gave me a good tail thrashing. My buddy caught alot of it on video so hope to edit and get on you tube soon

Yes Woody thats my new boat. Yea Ronny I heard about that Sat night. He was friends with all the Helldivers, if not a member, and they were out looking for him. A couple of them have a boat next to mine and they were pretty tore up Sat night. They have presumed him dead and the Coast Guard called off the search.

Stuck at home this weekend but here are some pictures from last weekend. We got out in the Green Canyon and found lobster,black fin tuna, almaco jack, trigger fish, grouper, mangrove snapper and trigger fish. The rigs out there were covered with tropical fish. I saw the biggest squirel fish, much bigger than any I have seen in the Carribean. Also saw parrot fish, octopus, french angels, four eyes and numerous other tropical fish. Its a shame the govt is making them tear these platforms down at an alarming rate. I am going to keep fishing/diving them before its too late.
