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

What camera were the Hawaii pictures taken with?

So, no break-a-way tips? I would have guessed with fish that size you would bend a few shafts from time to time. I haven´t used Pneumatic Guns much. Re-working the gun seems a pain if you need to replace seals. Has your Mares held up well? I like being able to completely tear my JBLs down, re-configure them or just do regular maintenance.

What type of speargun do you like to use for Lings? Here in So. California, for rock or bottom fish a shorter gun with a 3/8´´ shaft and break away tip seems to work best.

How big do the lingcod get in your area? I seen some nice size fish here in SoCal, but 50lbs is a monster.
