The Best Shark Dive in the World!
  • Feeding Lionfish to Bull Sharks?
    Source. Watch this. So Cassell is back. Which immediately begs the question, with or without Spot's fins? But I'm obviously digressing. The uncontrolled feeding of Lionfish to Sharks is a bad bad bad idea - the more as contrary to Playa where they encounter female Bull Sharks that are indeed conditioned and rather mellow, the Bulls in Cancun are feisty males that have already bitten
  • Here comes Taryn!
      Behold! This is she. This tiny subadult female Bull Shark has been around for a while, but I've only now managed to get a somewhat decent picture today.

  • Best fishing Video!
    Great find by Allen! Yes I do fish. Many I release, some I eat - and as long as they are fast growing and plentiful species like e.g. Mahi Mahi, there's nothing wrong with that. Provided that they are managed/fished sustainably, Fish are a renewable resource - and extreme positions like this one do NOTHING in helping to address the very real issue of overfishing. Not impressed!
