Hi, if you like to dive around the world I am inviting you to see the first city in America, Santa Marta, at the foot of the tallest mountain in the tropic and a fortress build against the pirate´s attacks in Cartagena and dive along these two sites in the Colombian Caribbean, to do some spearfishing, photo, underwater video, wreck diving, etc., let me know the dates of your stay here to set you up and show you around, thanks

We have a scallop dive planned for this Sat (5th) at Coos Bay OR. The water most likely will be on the rough side again so the back up plan will be crabbing & fish in the bay. If not under water, then we will use the crab traps. My son and three others spent 2 days there last weekend and returned home with 78 nice crabs. Most of them were large enough (full too) they did not even have to measure. I am going to give Hawaii a try the first part of March. It will be my first time there.

Will do, hopefully they´ll be out of the rocks. I´ll attach a pic of one of the octo´s I saw in the rocks from a few weeks ago. My last message didn´t come off right - ´´Lots of crabs in oregon and more octopus if you go to Washington´´. Just want folks to know we have lots of crabs too. I loved diving in Hawaii too, dove off Kaui and Maui at Molokini Crater - awesome dive! :-)

Sounds Fantastic. That is also how I have harvested scallops for years. I´ll never forget having 20 pounds of shells and everything growing on them in my kitchen sink. Worms, crustaceans, etc... Seemed such a waste and an extra effort to lug around. Take some pix of the octos if you can get your hands on a camera.

I like to use a fillet knife and slide it into the scallop, take the meat and leave the shell. Then I cut a small piece off the scallop and put it behind my regulator mouth piece during the rest of the dive, now that’s fresh! Lots of crab and more octopus when you go up into Washington. Like I said, we saw 4 octopus last boat dive. We’re heading out again this Sunday and I’ll let you know how many we see.

They do make a great pasta or entree for sure. The biggest and freshest ones I´ve ever had came from the oil platform legs between Huntington and Catalina Island at about 80 feet. Altough that was a few years ago. How prolific are the octos up there?
Written by Capt B on 12/3/2009
Yes, scallops and crab are much more abundant in our area. I like eating the scallops more than the ab´s myself.

We do very well diving for scallops here in Oregon too. Lots of fish, usually sea bass and lingcod. Going on a boat dive this weekend up in Tacoma Wa. on the Bandito Dive Charter Boat. Last time we went we saw four octopus and a ton of huge fish.

Sounds great! They´re my favorite seafood. Have to make it up there some time when the season opens. When is that?
Written by Capt B on 12/2/2009
I have not scored any ab´s up here and I know there are some. We did go south to calif recently and got some free diving though. Up here in Oregon you can scuba for them.
