sorry its been a while since i have posted many new and interesting things have been going on in my life at rainbow reef. went to DEMA got some new certifications. been teaching some discover scuba classes. and the most interesting was guiding a group and having a experience that i will not have anytime in the near future.
we were diving on french reef with 90 ft of visibility, no current, and the sun shining down on us. about half way through the dive I saw some fishing line floating in the water and grabbed it so it would not get stuck somewhere and damage the reef. i started to pull in the line when i noticed it was a little heavy. After i pulled in about 50ft of line i saw a very big fish and thought that it might be going after the lure but to my suprise it was attached to it and was very tired i decided to get the lure out of the mouth when i noticed that it was making it unble to open and catch its own food. so Jackie Morrison, another diver, and myself proceeded to get the lure out of the mouth. as we were taking it out, a green moray eel came out of nowhere and and attacked the grouper. we were shocked to see the eel so close and we got it away from the grouper and finished taking the hooks out. after we were done the eel came back and was looking for the fish but no such luck since we set it loose.
here are some of the pictures that we took during the dive.
