I can't wait to shoot and come to the weigh-in. This tournament is top notch in every respect!
Looks like mother nature is cooperating for most of the Gulf of Mexico for this weekend's St. Pete Open. No excuses not to join the "World's Largest Spearfishing Tournament and Party".
If you haven't registered yet, see you at the Captain's Meeting on Friday. If you have, see you at the beer tent on Saturday evening.
Does anyone have a spot open for a freediver new to the area, but not new to diving? I'm freakin dying here.
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely,
in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in side ways,
totally worn out, yelling... "That was a hell of a ride!!!"
Things are changing!!
WOW....what a differance a day can make. It ain't looking good now!
E15-20kts. with 4-6ft. The only thing good about that report is the direction of the wind. You should be OK in a 40ftr+ diving within a mile of so of shore or in the bay!
Hope something changes. It's suppose to get even worse on Sunday.
It's the first update of a change, I expect to see more here in the near future. 3 days out is still an iffy call in any weather forecast.

Don't worry about the weather, get your tanks filled and loaded. Have an inshore game plan ready and be at the captain's meeting for last minute rule changes. This tournament will not be postponed due to the current weather forecast.
It rains and blows everyday this time of year, shoot up the sheepshead if you don't want to run offshore.
If the current fish regulations continue this might be a sheepshead open tournament next year so IF the weather forecast holds true then consider this year as scouting for next year's Open
I LOVE SHALLOW WATER!!
Hopefully Bill didn't put the 'weather looks good' curse on us. Just have to wait and see.
It is Wednesday, and this is a classic example of the NWS jumping the gun. I bet it comes down to 2-4 or less - any takers?
