It was my Son Paul's 18th Birthday, so with some cooperating weather we headed South. John Rodstrom of Mount Vernon, Ohio called to inquire about a Spearfishing trip so he tagged along and made his first Oil Rig dives and caught some of the biggest fish in his life. My Son Luke (15) was also aboard. We started at a wreck in FH-13 to feel a couple Red Snapper pull and then went out to the G-Rig Air Force Tower. We made our first dive there and poked some Mangroves. John had a chance on a huge fish but missed. We then went out to FH-7 and made dives on the Jumbo Barge and the Grantee Tug Boat. Paul dove the adjacent Rig there and speared what we think is a Dog Snapper (See the Pics). He also saw a large Sea Turtle and Speared an AJ that broke the shaft and swam off. Next we hit MP175 to the Southeast and Luke poked a nice 36 pound Cobia. We also found more AJs. Paul boated a 35 pounder and John shot one that took him for a ride and broke the line across the Rig Legs. We also broke a brand new Penn Rod which was seeing it's first action. We had a costly trip in terms of equipment and tacke, two spear shafts, 2 tips, and a standup Rod. We headed North checking a few wrecks on the way and eventually made it back to the dock at 9PM. It was a great day that encompassed 122 nautical miles, 72.6 gallons of fuel ($234), and 15.2 hours.
