We just returned from a three dave trip in Providenciales July 7,8,9. And when we dove west Cay, my son and I found 12 full grown lionfish. It would have been nice if we could have captured the buggers.
I did talk to the dive boat dive master(Caicos Adventures) about the large amount of LF and he said some dive operators were licensed to take the LF but they were not..
This looks like a good place for a LF round up.
Here is a picture we took.
We have a new winner in our quest to find out who can get the largest lionfish on record for the lionfishhunter.com challenge. Zach Timmons has beat the previous record by 2 1/2". here is his account:
These fish seem to be everywhere now. Crazy that they have spread so fast. Never ate any because the snapper were biting so well. I will try them next year. This is a giant one for us. Most of the ones we shot were about half this size. Thanks for your interest. Let me know if there is a record keeping for fish for the Bahama chain. I fish down there every year somewhere. Love it. Capt. Frank Timmons
Keep killing those lionfish an submit your findings here. Hey Capt. Timmons, how deep was this one?
