    We decided to check out another fairly deep spot.

    I out gassed for one hour and twenty minutes before I went back in the water and down the anchor line.

    I was told, “Go anywhere but North.”

    “Why not North?” I asked.

    “Because you’ll get to 300 feet really quick.”

    I went East and then South, trolling for bugs.

    I didn’t feel as narced as I did on the last dive.

    I finally came across one that looked legal and grabbed for it.

    The thing was fast and slipped through my lighting fast grab.

    I continued trolling and caught one for this dive.

    I only had 15 minutes at the bottom and decided to start my ascent after 12 minutes.

    I knew if I had trolled for one more minute I would run in to a huge lobster that would have ruined my bottom time.

    I surfaced fairly close to the boat.

    Dan and his group was the last ones back to the boat.

    Dan unloads his stash of bugs.

    Dan’s crew came back with their bags stuffed with lobsters; they had apparently come across a heard of them.

    The Captain triple checks Dan’s lobsters for size.

    I pose with my catch of bugs.

    Beers are cracked for the Island Diver debriefing session.

    We partied all the way back and in the parking lot in traditional Divevets fashion.
