GREAT fish, but that guy needs to show a little more enthusiasm. He looks so dead pan.  :smt044 :smt044 :smt044

That's funny.  I saw the same enthusiastic expression when you found your first scallop.

Started spearfishing from a kayak recently.  How do you secure the kayak to keep it form drifting away?  Kelp? anchor?  Kelp isn't always available.  Didn't see anything mentioning that.

Thanks.

Take a kelp clip and an anchor just in case no kelp is around to clip to.
