A fun video we had a chance to be apart of about lionfish. Check it out!

Invasive lionfish are bad for local sea life -- but good for eating - CNN Video Lionfish are an invasive species that are plaguing the Gulf of Mexico, destroying habitats for other fish. Now, divers are trying to control their numbers by catching lionfish and selling them to upscale local restaurants.

Four years in a row we have won on the biggest stage, God is good! The 2021 Emerald Coast Open was a big time and we appreciate all the hard work and preparation it took to put it on.



1st & 2nd mates doing work πŸ’ͺ


The last couple days have been a blast diving with great friends! Bonus was landing a few fish.


This past weekend we participated in the Pensacola Lionfish Classic. We left the dock super early and dove all day Saturday to put together the winning box of fish. So proud of my teammates and their ex*****on of safe dives to the tune of 419 lionfish!


Some great adventures over the past week. The middle grounds were a great time with John and Miles! We got to show the fwc a couple of our fish from the trip.


A few pictures from the last couple weeks! This summer has been a good one for sure!

Remembering those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, Thank you! #OorahDevilDogs #MemorialDay



The Emerald Coast Open was a huge success! Thanks to Alex Fogg for all he did to orchestrate the best Lionfish tournament of all time. We planned and executed a great tournament which let us repeat as the lionfish champions on the biggest stage. Next year will be even bigger! 2241 Lionfish over 87 dives spanning 2.5 days was enough for first place barely edging out an awesome team "Fear the Spear".


Come down to AJ's on the Destin Harbor for the Lionfish Removal and Awareness Festival 2019 going on today and tomorrow. We are competing in the Emerald Coast Open and will be at the weigh-in tomorrow! See ya there!


Got dinner plans this week? Check out where Lionfish will be on the menu! #eatthemtobeatthem #emeraldcoastopen


Last Sunday, our team brought home 1st, 2nd & 3rd place for the Lionfish category along with some others. The Redneck Riviera Spearfishing Tournament was a lot of work but our hard work paid off! #1200lbs #teamfloridaman


We went out yesterday to finish a Lionfish order. We decided to dive some natural bottom and came away with 18 spiny lobsters. A limit of spinys out of Destin is definitely a first for us!


Got a nice one today! One of the first for 2019.

Pasty B and the Dreadknot bothing weighing the first Cobias for the year for Destin!! Pretty work boys & girls!!

One year ago we bought the Dreadknot 2. It turned out to be the largest single project we had ever undertaken. It took many man hours and lots of dedication to complete this boat and have it up to our standards. Special thanks to the dream team of Don, Phil, Joe, Larry, and Steve who worked tirelessly on this project; We couldn't have done it without you. Here's to many good times and tons of fish to come over the gunwales!


We took the Miss Amelia to Carabelle to participate in a Rov and sidescan project. Four days offshore at a time and hundreds of nautical miles. Praying the weather stays nice for us.


Awesome day on the water. Thanks for the stellar job working these fish in. Any day cobia sniff the props is a good day.


Great couple of days diving with our friends from MS. Awesome job filling up the coolers guys. See y'all soon!


Very grateful to be able to work alongside my brother and padna. Hashtag blessed


Captain Joe had two awesome five hour charters today. Pretty work guys!

Tournaments remove 15,000 lionfish

Thank you @DestinLog for featuring our teams win!! Team Florida Man 1st place πŸ†πŸ₯‡πŸΎ http://www.thedestinlog.com/sports/20180601/tournaments-remove-15000-lionfish

thedestinlog.com More than 15,000 lionfish were removed from Florida waters thanks to several tournaments held across the state focused on targeting the invasive species.


Great red snapper opener today! Gag, scamps, yellowedge and some nice red snapper.


Fantastic two days of Lionfish slaying with Carson and Jerry. They did a number on the Lionfish population. #diverite #zookeeperlcu #hatchcustomspeargun #fwc


We had a great trip this morning. The bull mingos were on fire.


It's safe to say there is no one better at killing Lionfish than us. We killed 1500# in two days and over 2400 fish. These results are unprecedented. Especially in a time where the Lionfish densities are much lower. Team Florida Man for the win! #zookeeperlcu #diverite #hatchcustomspearguns #niritic #diverightinscuba #teamfloridaman


Fun private spearfishing trip with Doc. Thanks guys, great shooting!


Check out the awesome new aquarium at the Ft. Walton Beach airport! We had a great time collecting the marine life. Big shout out to Capt. Joseph 'jojo' Livingston and Alex Fogg!


Before and after welding, sealing, primer, and paint. We are moving right along. Topside will be next. We are building something special. A full family affair!


@Absolute Dustless Blasting LLC getting the Dreadknot II stripped down so some fresh paint can be applied for many successful seasons to come! Exciting things are unfolding; stay tuned for progress updates!
