December 30, 2013.
We've been enjoying the new underwater camera that Santa brought us. The larder was full so we spent a few days in the water stalking fish and lobster and taking their pictures rather than their lives.
It was kinda weird but fun.
I'm sure the lobster enjoyed it more.

The Fine Lions moved into the neighborhood so when they went fishing I tagged along to take some action shots.
It was fun but watching someone else kill shit
was wearing on me.

Tomorrows New Years Eve and there will be a gathering on the beach and Christy wants to bring her Lobster Salad.
The problem is that we've been eating lobster but
not hunting them. You can't eat photos.
So this morning I got the
green light to go out and actually kill something.

I like to methodically hunt a section of the cay at a time. We've done several sections but hadn't touched my personal favorite yet.
Steve and I were in the
water by 0900 and Christy & Kim manned the dinks as we swam along
checking coral heads and ledges.

We covered a lot of ground and were back at the boat by 1100 hours. Steve took 9 bugs and a Hogfish while I grabbed 8 bugs and 3 Hogs.Obviously, after sharing my favorite spot with the Fine Lions I'm going to have to swim over tonight and kill them. This saddens me but Hey, we all had a great day.
