I haven't gone out yet but my buddy just pulled his limit at Ocean Cove and found a pearl in one of them to boot. *He tells me the weather was fantastic today.

Just heard from a second friend, he scored 9 1/4, 9 1/2, and 10 3/8, his buddy got 9 15/16, 9 1/2, and 10 3/16. So it was a great trophy day for all of them!

no i wasnt , i have talked to him on spearboard a few times he posted the info on that site .

Yeah, he's been posting it all over the place. When its only your second 10 incher in 26 years of diving, you have the right to brag! Hope to pull one myself this week. Do let us know how you do too.

Hey i went out this weekend i spent the weekend up the coast, friday to much wind, saturday i went in and got my ab but only took 2 (im trying to conserve so i can go up 12 times instead of 8, but when i got on the beach i was so use to filling out 3 slots i filled out 3 slots and didn't have an ab to put it on. BUMMER! but if you guys dont mind i would be interested in that dive thing in manchester, i need to find new people to dive with because my dad isn't adventurous. I didn't get any good sizes but sunday was a very beautiful dive with good vis.

Fishhook, thanks very much, I will definitely look you up before going to Manchester. *Diving off a boatt will be a new experience for me. And KeelHaulinRob, after I get a few solo dives in, I would love to hit the water with you in future. *I am always looking for new dive partners. *Perhaps in a week or two?

04-08-2009, 09:18 AM

Sounds like alot of fun, I've never dove with that many guys before. I read on NOAA that it was going to be a little windy on Saturday so postponing my dive till Sunday. Do let us know how you do!

Abdiver, you missed a great day up there. Vis was 15+ feet. Easy limits with the water being flat up by Sea Ranch. Got 3 nice ones with the largest being 9 3/4".

04-12-2009, 11:38 AM
That's great Crazy, 9 3/4 is huge. I hope the weather stays the same because I'll be diving alot next week. Hope to run into you out there sometime.
