    Just wanted to share some pics from a day of spear fishing with my twin brother and my son's first lobester.


    What a great catch! The tail alone measured 12.6 inches!!

    Oh WOW. I am SO jealous. That lobster should be grilled on the beach over a fire. How AWESOME.

    Your grouper is a GREAT catch.

    I used to go to Eluethera Island when I was a kid. I remember my Dad going out and spearing lobsters for dinner.

    I would have let that parrotfish go though. Meat is bitter and I think they look prettier just left alone...

    Did you go with a tour? I would like to know just in case I ever get to go again. Looks like whoever did the spearing setup did a great job.
