I'm definitely interested - let me know the exact dates and hopefully I'll be able to make it.

I had written on the "personal information" thread that I had hoped to go to the keys this year. This sounds like the best opportunity that I will have.



march 27th - april 1st

we normally hit sombrero for muttons and grouper. then, there's the bridge rubble in 90+ feet that has some bigger critters. the actual bridge has lobster and big mangroves. if the vis is good on a slack tide, there are some big holes between the bridges that are home to some big blacks.

the campground is a blast. they've got hot showers and a great view. marathon is also a great hub to trailer the boat to ramps that are closer to some wrecks.


If you've got room for one more on the boat, I'm in (my boat is too small for the Keys). Let me know and I'll make my campsite reservations.

Never been spearing but just as happy to freedive and take photos.

Feel free to private e-mail me at scottlnelson@hotmail.com


Sounds like it would be useful for diving in the Keys when I get down there anyway.

march 27th - april 1st, buddy! get your @ss down to knight's key!
I'd LOVE to, but work has me snowed under for another couple of months and that is Easter weekend to boot, so no chance of getting away. It's killing me knowing what I'm missing though.
et tu?

sorry cj, we'll send pics and flowers :D

scott, what about you? we've got a few hearty spearos lined up for the keys, wanna join us?


ps. my abyss/yellow lens is the bomb! :inlove

As we discussed, I'm in!

(I will caveat that I was unaware that this was Easter weekend - whats up with Easter being in March? - until CJB pointed it out. I just need to re-confrim with the new info).

other scott

actually i meant scott turgeon.

but, mr nelson.. keep me posted on whether or not you can make it too.
Thanks Andersn


I greatly appreciate your offer and would love to join you but between my first child hopefully being born in April, the Nationals in July (N. CA), and the Worlds in November (Brazil or now maybe Chile), I'm pretty much screwed for vacation time until 2003.

As a matter of fact, I was thinking about your trip last night and looked for any GPS numbers that I might have for that area to pass on to you but unfortunately I didn't have anything down there.

I know you guys are going to have a great time!

other, other scott


oops! I was a little confused about the "other Scott" - that's what happens when I try to sneak in reading the forums when I'm really supposed to be working.

After reading Scott Turgeon's profile (2001 USA Spearfishing Champion), I don't think I can get away with confusing myself with him anymore.

I'm still on - will just need to leave Saturday night after diving instead of Sunday AM.
