    Uh.. so much for task loading with it being mini season, now you are asking NEW diver to have a pony bottle and extra reg??? And to the person who suggested a night dive? Really? This is a new diver!

    Smart decision

    Been yanked up before by FWC.. and we were doing a fish count!!! didn't even have lobster gear on us!

    Impressive.. member since 2009 and this is your first post. Congrats for getting over your shyness. :shades:



    :D :D

    Believe it or not diving inside the sanctuary areas is usually empty during these 2 days. Great to dive if you are not looking to take lobster.

    I did Molasses one year and was the only boat there.

    Listening to the VHF traffic during the two day affair is truly frightening. Missing divers, boats reporting picking up divers, Etc.

    best way to be safe during mini-season. Stay inside and drink lots of rum until regular season is here.

    Uh J, didn't you change you screen name to Probable_Cause_Jenny? Oh wait, I'm informed that FWC requested that name change for you.

    Never mind...
