Player at 2:59 was that a big mutton you passed on? Can’t tell but looked like one. If not what was that?

Player, that was an angry Chonga. Don't shoot unless you have back up.

Now that I look at it closer it MAY be a scamp. They are sometimes very hard to differentiate underwater and I don't want to shoot what may be an undersized gag. Damn, that scamp would have been legal.

Player you need to take lessons from that world class spear fisherman who shoots small hogs in ass on species identification. You were locked in on the other fish that nice grouper cruised by gave you the finger .
i just found a video of a 30+ pound bull mahi swimming behind me laughing as I shot a smaller fish never noticed the whale

So you keep bringing me up in random post trying to put me down but here are the facts. You say I shot small ass hogs , but the one I posted on the original thread was 3 to 4 times bigger than the ones you originally posted...
Secondly, you still have not answered how you legally harvested two hogs on a solo trip in the Atlantic region were it's only one p.p......
Thirdly, you have not accepted my challenge to a competition in a area foreign to both of use so that there is no advantage to either side.
Last but not least, you tried to compare me to vanilla ice, yet you are the one that starts every single post with "player" and makes comments like "studio gangster".
You stated that I dont contribute to the fourm but the last three threads I've seen you comment on were
1: you posting a pic of an illegal catch...
2: you putting a fellow tht'er down saying " why. Would someone steal that " when their 50 k boat Was stolen.
3: you critsiziing another fellow angler for Choosing the wrong target .

So apparently I did something to make you get a little butt hurt . If you dont like being called out for illegal catches, it simple. Dont post them on a public forum. GOOD DAY !

Not sure I understand the question - how far for what? A certain depth?

Great job, Eric!

On a side note, this thread is turning out to be hysterical in typical THT fashion

Note to self!

Posting pics or video of fish on here can be very dangerous.

As to the depth to run out it depends on what your Target is and what direction you head. We get gags in very shallow in the winter as close as a few miles from the beach in 15 to 20 feet.

Yeah, it is amazing how an innocuous post ends up getting hijacked like clockwork.

Ah well. Sign of the times, I guess.

Sometimes I wonder if I should just stop posting videos.
