Week of the flounder

Atlantic cod and European plaice

Flounder

The last two dives been awesome! Not the greatest catch but the water is getting and it’s more enjoyably.

First dive i was filming with the gopro hopefully getting out a small video soon.
Got a cod 2,5 and a plaice 1,55. (edit: Here is the video on youtube)

Second dive was with a good friend an he got his first fish spearfishing! In total we got 3 plaice and 6 European flounders.

Short update on my spearfishing. How is your hunting going?

The day of the flat fish

New spot

New freediving spot

This weekend i tried out two new spots with grate results. This area also got a strong tidal current. Nice shallow water. some of the deep spots were 11-12 meter.

Saw a few cod and ballan wrasse. The cod was around 2-4 kg and very jumpy so did not get close enough for a shot.

The flat fish was a drifterent matter. The habitat was amazing for flat fish. Strong current, shallow and nice sandy patches.  Found the biggest european plaice i ever seen! Was recovering from a dive and snorkeling like a fat tourist over a sandy area about 5-6 m deep. I see it strait away form my high point, to big to hide! The speargun is ready as i dive, the plan is to take spear it on the speargun without shooting the speargun.
Even if the plan is only to stab it i am ready to shoot if it makes a run/swim for it 🙂
Get a perfect stab and it is stuck to my speargun stoned.

I also met som angry locals that told me i was stupid to dive in that area because of boats. I calmly told him i only seen two boats in the almost 2 hours i been there and if we showed som consideration we could all be happy. Was yelled at some more before they sailed off. When i dive i always keep an aye on boat traffic and dive outside de boat lanes.

On the way back i find a nice turbot to end the day with 🙂

Total catch:
1 European plaice 3,5kg
1 Turbot 1,9kg
2 Lemon sole
