    Corals for sale

    Just got back last night from Dave's "Seagullcat" house with some incredible looking mini colonies. The “Tyree bubblegum monster” is a true monster frag with great color and puffs up when feeding. All the other mini colonies/frags are well grown and LARGE. I will post some photos after the corals get used my lights and the water conditions (water change tonight) in my tank. His two display tanks are just packed with great looking corals and the frag tanks has frags growing together. Thanks

    Need help with tank lift

    Nice looking stand. I will come down just to look over the welds and pat the back of the guy who welded it. You can't have enough old guys lifting. RickO
  3. Sorry I missed your post early on.. What do yo0u have left of the live stock? RickO
  4. What time will all the heavy work be done? I will show up just after all that for the BBQ, drinks and a dip in the pool. Hanging out with friends and fellow fish nuts is always fun. Lisa thinks I should show up PRIOR to all the work being done so what time do we need to hit the time clock. By the way will we be getting Holiday pay? RickO and LisaO
  5. Packing and getting ready to head for the Keys Trip @ 4:30 AM. What did I forget to bring along? It does not matter as we have to go to Divers Direct to get new booties (old ones wore out) and if Divers Direct does not have what you forgot, you don't need it. Snorkel Boat is Saturday morning 8:00 AM check in. RickO Cell: 239-849-655four RickO & LisaO
  6. The weather forecast has high winds starting Wednesday of next week up to 30 mph but dropping down for Friday and Saturday. I am going to keep an eye on the weather forecast using Windfinder.com and Sailflow.com into next week. RickO
  7. I have been in touch with Bob @ Strike Zone the charter we will be using and he is not requiring us to place a deposit. We just need to keep him up dated as to how many will be going out Saturday morning. RickO
  8. That forecast is better than a poor weather forecast. Lets keep a look out and our fingers crossed.. RickO

  12. The club arranged trip will be on Saturday morning. We currently do not have enough to reserve the entire boat so we will be doing a shared charter. Saturday afternoon activities will be up to each individual as to where they want to explore or snorkel. Like Ron, I like the horseshoe area including both side of the road ands under the bridge depending on tide and wind conditions. I will be collecting crabs, shrimps, small fish, other inverts and gorgonians. I will have collecting nets, slurp gun and holding buckets with me. Anyone who wants to tag along to watch/help/collect is welcome. I mention the slurp gun as a joke because I have never been able to slurp anything but have been very successful with the nets. One thing that we have not sais much about is dinner Saturday night. In the past we have got together at one of the local restaurants and we need to get a head count as to how many will be joining us. If you are going to join us in collecting please make sure you have a FL saltwater fishing license and read and comply with the rules and regulations on taking creatures like having a flexible knife for Zoa removal.

  13. Snorkel Trip June 16, 2018 Need to get a handle on how many snorkelers we many have for the trip next month, June 16, 2018 (Saturday morning) RickO & LisaO Charlie & Robin Ron & Elaine Blackthunda77 & wife John Reynolds
  14. Please note this response was initially tried to post May 1, 2018 Blackthunda77 Glad to hear you got your reservations for the Black Fin Resort. Your boat sounds like fun. The first club trip I went on to the Keys Reefer Ron and Coral Dave had boats and took members out to the small islands. It was a lot of fun. We will get this post more active as the trip gets closer. Sorry I can not offer any help with the membership renewal but FishinBob keeps an eye on the posts and will be able to help. RickO
