Lots of fish in shallow, fish are all over in the 35' to 45' areas. I got one report of limiting out in 20' of water North of Anclote Island. Stone Crab season opened on October 15th and everyone has been grabbing a claw or two... good eating! Stone Crab traps are usually on great bottom in shallow, so be sure to check out structure around them, could be a great diving and fishing spot!

Del Arduengo sent these photos of the big catch off of his boat "Old Yeller" Nice fish Del. Water temperatures are in the mid to high 70's, still warm. Vis has been great to fair, depending on the weather.
Let's go diving.

  Increase the Size of Your Body Parts ~ Guaranteed!

 

Investor inquiries welcome!
Everyone is talking about my new discovery!

I get e-mails every day about increasing the size of my body parts. At 250 pounds, there is nothing on Captain John that needs any more enlargement!

These fraudulent claims about miracle pills really irritate me. First I hate to think one of my X's has been ratting out my "short comings" and/or selling my name to these liars. Second, I hate the "p-word" they use, the word sounds small, like peanuts.

But being the business man I am, I have decided to jump into this business and be the only advertiser to absolutely guarantee enlargement for body parts for both sexes. This miracle scientific breakthrough is only offered by Capt. John, and will work on both male and female bodies! No pills to take, no creams, no exercises, no implants! Guaranteed!

What is this miracle?It is called refraction, a scientific wonder! Dive naked! Presto! All of your body parts will appear 25% larger than normal!

To increase the size of your body parts go to:
