Hey Stephen, is it possible to incorporate pictures into a post. As this category is not just about spearfishing it would be wonderful to be able to post pictures here. If they had a story that went with them that would be even better.
You Already Can!


File Uploads are already activated in the forums. I have set them to be viewed "in-line" now (i.e. they appear in the post itself rather than as a link)

You can upload an image in a post by using the "Attach File:" option at the bottom of the post page.

schoolmaster snapper

when i have my gun, these guys are no where in sight :D these critters are my second favorite snapper to eat. 1st is the mutton snapper.
mangrove snapper

here's a nice pair(male/female) of mangrove snapper. i'm not too fond of their flesh(a bit muddy to me), but alot of people like them and they're plentiful where i go. the larger ones of this species will actually turn on it's side when you're chasing them giving you a smaller profile cause you're looking at their back. then, it's almost impossible to spear them. pretty good defense mech. i'd say. :D
My Favorite

This is one of my favorites. It's a Goat Fish. The local name for it is Joe Lewis, due to the large lips. (no racial pun intended)

True, but having lived in Boulder for a short while, I know there are some very clear lakes in those distant peaks (when they are not frozen). Do I remember you saying you hailed from FL? If so, I understand if you are reluctant to dive water that was snow just days and sometimes minutes ago...:)

Great photos Andrsn! You have the touch. Most of us shoot pics with more emphasis on the washed out dark blue and the comments are always along the lines of " are you sure that is a ______ fish?" Keep them coming! Although I live near the pacific, work has been taxing my dive time.

Warm Regards,

this is the very tasty hogfish. although alot of people call them hogsnapper, this is wrong. the hogfish belongs to the wrasse family. their flesh is superb! very white and fine fibered. delicious broiled with just lemon and herbs. gotta keep them iced well until you clean them, cause they can mush up on you. very interesting bone structure. looks almost prehistoric in the photo.
gotta share sometimes

here's a nice little nurse shark that thought it needed to relieve aquiles of the grouper he had just shot. i really don't mind sharing sometimes. :D
aquiles' twins

in case you haven't seen this pic on the 'personal bests' thread, here it is. this is aquiles showing off his skills. yes, they were skewered simultaneously. not an easy feat knowing how difficult it is to get 1 grouper, and even a headshot at that!
my wallpaper

this is one of my favorite shots.. i call it 'los ojos'
ingredients: schoolmaster snapper, blue striped grunts, atlantic goatfish, mangrove snapper, french grunts, and some others...

That's what I've got to look at the whole day ..
