Nice Midlegrounds trip with Captain Joyce Gordy on the Narcosis II Saturday. My fellow adventurers were Seals members Dr. Grouper (David Shelton), Big T, (Tom Morris), and Shooter Dan (Dan Addison). Also present was Wayne the real good Tarpon deisel mechanic, Scott the X-ray tech, and Carl the Computer Scientist. We were prepared for just about      Narcosis trip 2-21-04 012.jpg (688326 bytes)         Narcosis trip 2-21-04 020.jpg (662557 bytes)    any eventuality.        Cackle.jpg (149812 bytes)

Everybody knows that the weather forecast was screwy......but this time it worked to our benefit. We didn't feel a lump the entire day, but had the Middlegrounds almost entirely to ourselves. We had to look for fish this time, but eventually did good. The highlight of the day was Tom Morris's big hogfish, which he stalked in the sand at 140' deep and shot with his new SS Commercial.......with the line on.

At the 85ft level Harshman caught a Greater Amberjack fish weighing in at 95.5 Ibs and 5ft 4inches long. This weight tied the Suncoast Seals Dive club Record that was set in 1968. The inner ear of the fish was sent to the marine laboratory in Panama City, FL for age analysis. During the same dive Littell caught a 53 Ib Amberjack.
