Will Dive for Food

A little change of pace then the normal diving, where artifacts are usually the goal and food is secondary thought. We headed out of Atlantic City to hit a few small snags to kill some fish and grab some lobsters. We left the dock around 5am and was greeted with a beautiful sky.

After a little bumpy ride and a few attempts trying to hook a sanded in wreck, we began gearing up. I went in first, tied in the hook and took off swimming in the direction I thought the larger area of wreckage was. Well I was wrong and found bits and pieces still managing to get a few lobster and Sea Bass. As I made my way back to the anchor line and stared my ascent, what comes in to view? The large part of the wreck I was searching for. O well there is always next time.

For our second dive we went to a shallower wreck and hooked it in no time. I like this wreck because its a larger boiler and is like shooting fish in a barrel. We managed to bag a few more lobster and shoot some more fish. All in all it was a good day.
