congrats aquiles!
!Good shootin' El Guapo!

Sure YUMMY YUMMY fishes !!!
120 feet viz. I probably will miss every shot with these kind of visibility. Damn, 60 foot viz already confused me. My my.

IYA:duh :duh :duh
Keys Craze redemption

Just when you thought that the kid lost his edge he makes the comeback!:ko On saturday we went out in 4-6 foot (?meters) waves. It was nasty but the desire to fish was even nastier.
I can't type too well cause stabbin the thirty pounder i stabbed myself (in the finger) Oh well the price of fishing

:head I will try to post the pics I hope they come out.
Check out the vis. This was the thirty pounder in 60 feet of water

Pink Floyd sayd:

...wish you where here,,,,well i wish i where there....;)

But where did you encounter the alien with the big Jagger-lips and no chin? It has stolen my mask and snorkel, which is numero uno by the way!

P.s Aquiles is looking good holding the aliens big fish...... rofl

Lasse moving house this weekend, so i aint gonna get me some....fish:waterwork
Muy bien migrant!

...am I not the only one thinking that that slug of a mutton is a record? Hope you slathered that bad boy with lemon and habanero... That's eatin!! And at 90 feet?! What're you trying to prove, that Jay's going to have to go through you to get to your Mom? :inlove su es la mano!

I'm trying to get Anderson to let me come out in August, so save me some. Even the 90 footers... I can shoot down. :crutch and North... Bill and I have the snorkels.

snorkels and blather

Hey Sven
What did you decide on snorkel? How did you deal with Hana Pa'a? Until I get back into sticking fish, next year, snorkels aren't very important. On the back burner.
Everything I see sticks out farther than my ears. It's almost like the designer never used it. Sort of like a fishing lure, it doesn't have to catch a fish, it's successful when it leaves the store or the factory. I did find a moldable mouthpiece for about $35. We built better snorkels as teen agers because we didn't want to spend the $2. There was a real cool one at the dive shop yesterday that folds in half and fits in your buoyancy compensator's pocket. What's a 'buoyancy compensator'?
If I sound a little bitter, the worst cold in years hit me about ten days ago. Couldn't take it anymore on Monday and with the help of Sudafed, went to 110 feet a couple of times. Felt like crap and the stuff I spread on the surface after that would gross out a proctologist
Do you believe that other thread? NEWS FLASH divers get horny. Starting to feel like I've been on another planet for a few decades.

best wishes

Bill's back!

Indeed Bill, these "new found" revelations are giving me a sore neck from the head shaking...:head

The guy's at HanaPa'a were great! Gave them your credit card number and I recieved my order in two days, packed nice and all, and will definitely give them the nod when it comes time to spread some of the winnings around. I was looking through their '01 catalog at the AQA brand and was really surprised, glad and surprised at the "older" styles of masks that they've resurrected, (swiped?) and are making in silicone to boot. My cockles are gladdened to have a source. Of course I hedged my bet by buying several of everything... ;)

Sorry to hear of your illness. Still, going to 110 w/decongestants puts you in a league with the gifted, and deaf... :ycard

I'm up at Tahoe for a few more days and hoping that this nail-banging at altitude will give me a few extra red cells come next week if I can get to the real beach.
