Another One Bites The Dust!

So I wanted to post these pictures up because i felt it necessary to share such a great catch with everyone. My friend Dalaney Overstreet and I cruised out with a group of Mexican Speardivers to a remote spear-diving site in the Sea of Cortez. We were diving in 30 to 40 feet of water in an at first crystal clear day that later turned turbid with swift wind and quick currents. The Good News... We got a fish! A 25 lb Pargo in fact, this is possibly one of Dalaney's largest fish, and proof that more are on their way to the boat!

Its been awhile, since October!

Hey Everyone!

I Have been Kiteboarding or Speardiving almost every day since i last posted. Nothing but non-stop action! In this area of the Sea of Cortez where i camp, it's calm in the morning and windy in the afternoon. This works great for a combination of diving in the morning, when the ocean is clear and calm, and Kiteboarding in the afternoon when its windy!

We have found some great places lately to take our little inflatable boat to spear larger fish. Ive managed to shoot a couple of nice sized Pargo in the 8 to 10 lb range but have yet to land a 30 lb plus fish! The trick with speardiving is time spent in the water and we have been spending many hours in the underwater world which is so beautiful here.

The Pictures below are mostly from the month of November and a couple are from December.

First pictures are of the various different fish we have speared in November/December.

These Next pictures are of Javi and I and our Boat the little Belafonte or (Belafontido), purchased with a government grant strictly for Ocean Research and exploration we use the small craft to explore Mexican waters and harvest fish solely for research...

The next couple shots are of friends and various other stuff, our friend pictured with the fish below goes by the name of Dorado Dee Dee and lives up to her reputation, one day she had over 6 fish on and landed 2 of them. Amazing!

Dorado Dee Dee!
