We are headed out to the 150 wood wreck for the season opener of deep Sundays. Any one else?

Hi Steve,
The 150 wood wreck is a old wood wreck in 150fsw that is well offshore in the gulf and usually produces some good entre' items for dinner. If your profile is up to date it is a little too deep for you.

The marine electric is a good wreck. she stil has some portholes left. Last year she had some tangled pot lines on her and it fairly easy to get into some overheads if you are not carefull. current can be tricky on top of the hull depending. The double frame hull that is laying out in the sand usualy holds some lobstrosities. Sea bass and taug are also frequent residents.

Sounds like a good dive, but yea...my profile is accuracte. It'll be a couple years before I can dive the deeper than rec depths. But, spearfishing is on my to-do short list. I probably should bring a net/bag in case I run into any of those lobstrosities - as long as they don't claw a hole in my drysuit/drygloves :D

Hey Eric,
I'm diving the 150 wood wreck too. Hopefully, I can find enough tasty sea critters to make a dinner or two. However, if I wasn't diving with Ted on Sunday, I'd try to hit the Marine Electric with Jeremiah. Thats a cool wreck as well.

See you on Sunday.

Steve,
You are in luck! Jerimiah teaches a spearing, hunting gathering class in rec depths that I have heard is comprehensive and a lot of fun. you should talk to him on the boat about it.

Andrew,
I am giddy like a school girl. The early dives on the wood wreck usually produce some "heavy fish"..

Eric,
You should have been out on the first weekend to the San Gil. Ted had some numbers for a wreck that he had not been to before. We decided to dive that wreck first before moving on to the San Gil for the second dive. The wreck is probably an old wooden fishing vessel, very broken up with a few piles of junk. However you wouldn't really notice that because the Tog and Black Sea Bass were HUGE and UNAFRAID. The sea bass were out of season so they were safe, but I measured one that was almost as long as my arm. Yes, they were that unconcerned about the divers that I could hover a foot over one to measure. As for the Tog, just when you thought you saw the biggest one ever, an even bigger one would come along. The whole dive was like that. Made me wish I had a speargun.

I'm hoping to get a bag of scallops and some more brass from the 150.

Andrew,
Yea I am still pissed I did not get "the word" that you guys were going to the lunch box wreck on the way to the san gil. We are planning a trip back there at some point this season, and if the tog are big enough to sadle and ride, I will be sure to liberate a few!lol
Eric
See you in the morning
