Well, after a few dives last year and more than a few this year, I finally managed to grab some crays myself, instead of my dive buddies.

I think i ended up grabbing 2 and looping two. I probably woulda had a full bag if I had grabbed a few flighty ones a little tighter. Hopefully my craying will improve leaps and bounds from now.

Well done Matt..that is one big white on the end too.  You'll be bagging out in no time soon.

You can also request more xmas presents now as you can supply the family with Xmas Cray!

Came really close today

Came really close today actually on both dives. Woulda got the bag too if one didnt find a hole at the hinge to escape. Still got 12 on the boat, so really happy about that. Learnt a fair bit last time and this time, so feel i've improved 10 fold since last weekend.

Good work Matt. It takes some practise that's for sure. I can remember yelling at the top of my underwater lungs more than once at the beginning of my cray diving. I'm sure my dive buddies were laughing their arses off.


The best reason for doing what's right today is tomorrow.
