Re: Welcome Lurkers!

OK, I'll bite. Im a spearing newb. I'm a lifelong boater/hunter/fisherman, and have been diving for the past 9 years. Im from Ohio and the diving here blows, I spend about a month in the Keys each winter and even diving down there is starting to get boring so I started thinking..boating..diving..fishing..shooting stuff..EUREAKA!! Spearfishing!! Ive been scouring a few different forums for the past few months. Im in the process of setting up my new gun, 54" Biller with some goodies from Spearfishing Specialties and making some final rigging changes to my boat before I head down in roughly a month. So if you see me post some somewhat stupid questions between now and then, take it easy on a new guy.

Re: Welcome Lurkers!

welcome aboard!! Sometimes you just have to take it on the chin, some of these guys can get pretty rough but all in good fun. glad to see you made the transition to spearing, you won't regret it. if you travel all the way to the keys, you are going by a lot of good hunting. florida has great spearing on all fronts with some of the best out in the panhandle. If you ever get on the west coast, around the Cedar Key area, get in touch and I'll get you on some good spots.

Re: Welcome Lurkers!

Yeah, I am a lurker, so much so that I lost my confirmation e-mail and even though I could log-in, I couldn't post anything. I had to e-mail SpearMax to get my account set-up properly!



I introduced myself in the FL East Coast forum, but I'll do it again here. Name's Brian, I live in Jacksonville, FL, been diving for about ten years, but just recently started spearing and I love it. I am a Captain and Diver for Sea Tow Jacksonville, and also a motorcycle riding instructor. I used to live in the Keys and I ran the largest recreational diving operation in the world for a while. I actually got into spearfishing because I bought a gun for a friend of mine as a thank you, and got myself one at the same time so we could dive together.

Thanks for the help SpearMax, and so far I'm a big fan of the board.

Re: Welcome Lurkers!

Took me 3 mounths to get my accout activated had to email spearfishing mag to get it turned on.
I tryed to get another screen name activated with a differnt email to see if i just fell through the cracks but that account still isnt activated.
Its a little hard to get ppl registered if no one activates the accounts!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have a few other friends that are awaiting activation.

please go through awaiting accout activations

Re: Welcome Lurkers!

Hi Spearboard,

It took about 1 month after registering to get my account activated.
Like kwspearfishing7 I tried to register from different e-mail accounts but that didn't help, I guess I just needed to be patient! Finally now I can reply to these nice deals on the Marketplace and post some noob questions!
Glad to meet you all!

Welcome cid2!

We don't just let anyone in.

You passed the patience test.
