|Current Conditions Gulf of Mexico|
Gulf temps are in the 80 - 85 degree area. Bring
a bath robe! We have been having some of the best vis in
years for this time of the year. The rains have caused
some problems with vis and high seas, but we are still
getting out every week. Fishing in shallow is still slow.
Try 65' or deeper for the big ones.
I went diving on last month North of Anclote in the 45' area. The Big Rocks, Vermount area for those of you that have been diving with me before...
Vis was 15' to 20' the current was ripping out of the North, on the backside of Vermount, we found lots of Mangroves and Hogs. Capt. Ben took an 8 pounder biggest one we have taken in that shallow (45')
Captain Richard Daniel's son, Hunter did well on his first spearfishing trip. See photo left.

Scallop Season Opens!
The most productive way to catch scallops is with mask, fins and snorkel. Drifting along, the snorkeler looks for scallops in patchs of seagrass. Sharp eyes help pick up the shiny paired eyes lining the scallop's interior mantel. Being towed behind the boat on a snorkel sled, using a glass bottom bucket are other methods of locating scallops (Sleds and Buckets available from Aquatic Adventures dive shop).
What you need to scallop:
I will be booking Scallop Trips from July to September 11th when the season closes. Full boat with guide $250.00 or $60.00 per person, 6 hours of fun!
There are still Manatees at Crystal River. But the heard
moved out earlier this month. There are 50 or in the park
all year round, but you have to look a little harder to
find them. I always find manatee!

a trip to Florida. In looking through your site I thought
your trips looked interesting and was considering
contacting your (sic). That was until I read your page on
bottled water. (See Newsletter Article www.scubatampa.com/nl.07.03.html)! While I agree
with the first part of your statements, what began as a
plausible cause quickly degrades into a vulgar ranting
about idiots, "faggots", and Swiss and French-bashing.
I just wanted to let you know that at least in this case,
you have lost business because of it. Please do not reply.
I am not interested in starting a dialogue. I simply
wanted to make my point so that you might reconsider what
you are trying to accomplish with your website; promote
your business or your prejudices?
Capt. John Wrote: Dear Eric, That is a rant and is considered humor.... You obviously have no sense of humor! You probably are an idiot.
Asking me not to write to you shows a lack of respect for anyone with thoughts or humor that differ from yours. Why did bother writing in the first place? Did you want to pick a fight and run away? How French of you!
If you believe in the Bible.... We all came from Adam and Eve, so we are all Hebrew. If the world flooded we are descendants of Noah, and we are all still... Hebrew. So I am Hebrew.
Russell is a Norman Name, French. The Normans (French) and the Saxons (German, Swiss) are the fathers of the English Race. So I am Hebrew, French, German, Swiss and English.
Luke Russell was born in Lancastershire England 1669, Died in St. Mary's County Maryland in 1729. I am a 6th generation descendant of Luke's, so I am Hebrew, French, German, Swiss, English and American.
My great, great, great granddad on Mom's side was named Hearn, and the Hearns are from County Cork, Ireland. So I am also Irish. He married a Saux and Fox Indian woman in Oklahoma. So I am Hebrew, French, German, Swiss, English, American, Irish and Native American!
Genetic scientists have discovered that we all have a common earth mother through our common DNA. She came from Africa and was probably black. So I am Hebrew, French, German, Swiss, English, American, Native American, Irish and Black African.
There were probably some idiots and faggots in my family tree as well..... (Noah's son Hamm may have been "funny")!
Bottom line is.... I can bash my own people and heritarge without the fear of being called a bigot or prejudice!
Anyone who thinks I can't, Eric, can kiss my Hebrew, French, German, Swiss, English, American, Irish, Native American, faggotty, idiotic Black African Butt! Eric, feel free to write me back, folks like you amuse me. "Shine on you crazy diamond"! - Pink Floyd
