    ..............or a 7x57 Mauser.

    Mike
    That is completely interesting.  I have an 1893 7x57 Spanish Wasp Mauser, which is a hand me down.  A nice shooter, but horrible sights.  So you are shooting that caliber in a sporting rifle.  I have much more respect for it now.

    I'm trying to compute the price per pound for those big guys (I'm sure you eat them).  $485/lb?  I quit saltwater fishing when I figured the cost of my red snapper.   :-O

    Hey Doc,

    Here's a bit of trivia for you.  The 7x57 is also known as the .275 Rigby.  The famous ivory hunter Walter Bell killed over one thousand Elephants with that caliber.  That would not be a sport for sissy's!!!

    Funny, My father inlaw keeps touting how much cheaper it is for him to take these trips, and go fishing. 
    Trips out from Montauk for 3 to 5 days to the George's banks for tuna, or real deep stuff for cod, and pollack
    Bx - > NJ ->TX!!! 
    All to get cheaper brisket!

    Fishing in the Kayak



    I won a kayak fishing tournament in Newport. They have a tournament series called plastic navy. Lots of fun. A buddy from my Cuban cigar days started a kayak fishing business in Baja. His name is Spike.

    Out of San Diego long range fishing. I usually have at least a thousand pounds of fish per trip. Lots of school tuna up to 100lbs and a 200lb mixed in with dorado, wahoo, yellowtail,etc. But hobbies aren't just about the money just about what we like to do.

    Mike... Did any of those wind up on the Egg?
    No, but I wish it would have.  USDA and CDC do not allow the importation of wild game meat from Russia or Africa.  The Eland and Sable (second and third photos) are delicious.  All meat was used in camp, distributed to locals or sold in meat markets.  No protein is wasted in Africa.

    I hunt gators from my kayak!
  • NewportlocalNewportlocal Posts: 474
    That's cool. Swam with em in Florida but never hunted em.
  • Hokie_SmokerHokie_Smoker Posts: 653
    I dive the Cooper River for Meg teeth and gators all around but haven't encountered one at depth. Hopefully it stays that way.

    I have harvested gators for 22 years but only started using the kayak 5 years ago. It brings a new level of excitement to the activity.

    I catch threshers and makos with seals in them, but catching a gator in a kayak sounds like an adrenaline rush.

    I got certified in Northern Florida.  When I told my wife I was down 200 ft and 1/2 mile in on a planned deco dive and going through a passage that was about 3 feet in diameter, she started hyperventilating. You can't be claustrophobic in cave diving.
    Haven't dived in years.  My deepest was Zuber Sinkhole, and went to 180 feet.  Got nitrogen narcosis; cool.  Did 110 feet at Eagle's Nest, and went down the big crack.  My brother and I talked in the bath tub, which was 90? feet.

    I did Blue Springs, but only down to about 80 feet.  Did 80 feed at West Palm, and looked at the nothing on the bottom, but it was really exciting to surface to no support boat.  The guy had gone in for cigarettes!

    Most dives were at 30 feet in the Keys, and that was wonderful.



    I was certified to dive before I could drive legally. Born and raised in Key West.

    I am a diehard Dawgs fan. Really excited about this season. I'm about 10 minutes from willams-Brice so I see them play every other year in Columbia. Pretty excited that USC game moved to later in the season ha. It sucks living around the gamecock fans.

    Great thread! At various and sundry times martial arts (modern arnis under Prof. Remy Presas, TKD (agree more a sport than street),last comp fight was at age 50, 11 yrs ago (just ask my orthopedist), salt water fishing (fished the SKA circuit for a few yrs.), handgunning,cooking esp w the Egg, used to run a Porsche on the track occsionally, practice my Scots Gaelic when I can find someone who speaks it, love Celtic music, brewed beer for 20yrs but now enjoy wine esp. heavier reds, was a serious powerlifter until age 35 or so,played rugby (good way to donate blood),etc etc..Wish I was musically talented but I can't carry a tune in a bag!



    That's awesome stuff

    Ain't that the truth. What I spend on hunting and fishing I certainly don't make back ha
