This is a short iMovie I put together fishing for cobia and playing with 400-pound bull sharks on a large wreck in the Gulf of Mexico north of Key West.

My friends Brian and Kevin had some fantastic fishing on their first trip to Key West. It helped that the weather was nice. We were able to run to the Rockpile, a not so secret spot nearly 70 miles from Key West and about 12 miles northeast of Fort Jefferson at the Dry Tortugas. We had a little fun with a visitor before chewed the bottom out of our chumbag.

Everything below this line is not mine... but there is so much cool lionfish stuff out there... All the credit goes to the creators... just love watching them get shellacked. They really are a huge threat to us. Enjoy the reaving...

By way of disclosure.... I had nothing to do with this... but it is awesome! October 11, 2014 While diving with Coast Watch Alliance in the last Gulf Coast Lionfish Coalition derby in Pensacola, FL we came across a reef that had a high density of lionfish present. We determined that this site was in fact an upside down sunken Airplane.

Lad Akins from REEF demonstrates how to safely fillet a lionfish. Check out the video to find out how to turn lionfish spines into skewers or toothpicks. For more information on Lionfish, please visit
