Won’t upload the video for some reason! Some people think it may be a tuna.

Now that is interesting! I really can’t say what that would be without more details though.
Was it a basking shark, or something else do you think?
Looks like a big tuna or a sort of dolphin but as I can’t see it swimming I can’t judge....
My money is on a tuna?

There is now a video of the big fish thing ... looks like a tuna but strange behaviour to be swimming alone in such shallow water?

Whatever it is it’s certainly a big fish!

I have some more questions, ranging form the seemingly simple to the rather outlandish:

1) Is there a good source that shows the types of flora and fauna the live at different levels on rocks around Sark that are sometimes underwater and sometimes abovewater? I'll take Guernsey or Jersey if that's available.

2) More specifically about the flora living on rocks that are sometimes above the water line: Barnacles. Are your kind sharp enough to draw blood if one either drags ones skin over them or puts ones weight on a bed of them (when above water)?

3) I doubt you've ever encountered a group of people underwater repeatedly pounding a bunch of flint stones the size one one's hand against the bottom of a wooden boat. But if you had, would that pounding have been audible form a distance in the water, or indeed from inside the boat?

4) Now I'm not asking if any of you got in a fist or even a knife fight underwater, but there anything any of you can say for how best one should move to be most effective (both attacking and savoring attacks) in such a circumstance?

You don't get any less random Eric!

1) Not off hand.
2) Certainly, plenty sharp enough.
3) Very audible, sound travels miles under water and you'd be effectively banging a big drum.
4) Bring a bigger knife. From my underwater fighting experience wide slashing roundhouse type strikes are far less effective than jabs as the water resistance slows down your arm movement far more, but your biggest problem is seeing whats going on as all the bubbles obscure your view. My most succesful underwater fights have been ones I've ended quickly, by having a bigger knife.

Alright lads. I've done a compilation video of my old Gopro footage, its certainly not as good as some of your video edits but only after putting the footage together do you realise the importance of having good quality footage! The first camera mount I made for the gun was pretty poor and it kept on flipping up or down when the gun was fired due to the recoil of the band (as you will see in the video) - I think I have fixed that now.

Spearfishing in Jersey C.I / UK in 2018 - Bass, Mullet & Bream

I had a brief chat with Foxfish and even though its all Jersey diving he said it was ok to post in your Guernsey thread.
