Time for yet another diving adventure report! I have heard some say that my reports lately only show people pictures and no specimen pics, well this one should fix that. Our trip started off September 27th, I picked up John D. in Pickins and we were off to Florida. Jerry and Tena were to meet us the next morning at Ginnie Springs where John and I were camped. Pat was meeting us there to camp for her birthday weekend. We arrived Wednesday afternoon and setup camp.
The first night, John and I cruised the park checking out the bikini girls, it was a rough night.
The next morning, Jerry and Tena arrived and we suited up for our first dive of the week. Tena dropped us off at one of the springs and we floated out to the river and began our hunt.
Jerry and I both had cameras with us and took several nice shots of the underwater wildlife etc.
Above two pics: That's me hunting the bottom, I think I need to do something with the ponytail before it gets wrapped around a tree and I have to cut it off!

The fish in the river reminded me of stray cats, they would hang behind Jerry and I and wait until we turned over a rock and then grab whatever was under the rock to eat, crayfish, smaller fish, etc.
