Woke up wanting to make something Searchy, and this is what happened. The wood is padauk from the same board that my spearguns are made out of, the rope is shooting line from the gun, and it is lashed with fishing braid.
Good to EPIC inshore dive conditions in the Gulf = Snapper Trip! This is the best I've seen the water at one of my spots... maybe ever? The Atlantic Spades were out in force and loving the clear, warm water too!
Finally finding the first fat snapper of the season! Easily in range of CETO and we've been cleaning up on paddle power 1 breath at a time...
We don't often get waves on the Gulf Coast, and when we do, they don't last long. The storm of the year made some nasty conditions, sunk some boats, and left a few clean, glassy lines behind.
I found the monster Sherpa, and everyone calls asking where they live. Well, all I have to say to that is, "Keep Searching."
I am absolutely terrified of heights. ...like streaming tears crying scared. So, Ayla and I sought out TreeUmph, a high ropes course! It ended up being a ton of fun and we went all the way through the highest course! An above sea-level Search!!!
