Have You Ever Seen Underwater Base Jumping Like This? SICK!!!

Can you imagine diving into an almost pitch black underwater cave…

All while holding your breath and staying as calm as Cool Hand Luke…

Well professional free diver Guilliaume Nery sure can!

And they call this underwater jump into Dean’s Blue Hole “Saltwater Base Jumping

Pretty darn rad!

And with the amazing videography from his gal pal Julie Gautier, this Salt-water base jumping is one of our favorites yet.

Just to let you know how tough Julie Gautier is, below is the title of the actual video from YouTube (notice that Julie was filming down there with no tanks…pretty legit)

Guillaume Nery base jumping at Dean’s Blue Hole, filmed on breath hold by Julie Gautier

Also take note at the 3-minute mark of this video – Julie does a close-up of Guilliaume Nery at the very bottom of Dean’s Blue Hole, and there is a very quick shot of his wetsuit that has the word “Ball” written across his chest.

Well I think they should change that that “I’ve got Balls of Steel”

If you are wondering where this “Blue Hole” is, it is in the Bahamas, it is right off of the beach, and the locals believe that it was dug by the devil (seriously). There was even a 60 minutes episode on this (click here to see the 60 minutes episode).

Also, if you missed the other amazing underwater video from Guillaume and Julie that we posted a week about the Ocean’s Crazy Currents, check it out here.

Guilliaume Nery + Julie Gautier = Salt Strong

Find Out Why This Inshore Guide Is Doing The Poling Platform Dance!

Have you ever caught a bonefish before?

If not, you need to check out the amazing bonefish action in this video from South Andros Island in the Bahamas.

Some have called the Legendary Bair’s Lodge as one of the best places to have an amazing bonefish experience on the planet.

And as you will see in this video, anglers Alissa Vinoski (recently named as one of the 33 Must Know Female Anglers in Florida), Ali Hobson, and Patrick Rhea (the same guy that filmed and edited the hit music video “Fishing In Our Soul”) tear it up during a recent weekend at Bair’s Lodge.

Not only is the bonefishing amazing, but so are the people and the fishing guides.

Check out how much fun these guides are having putting people on bonefish.

Cigars, dancing on the poling platform, beer… sign me up!

Enjoy!

You’ve Heard Of The Mullet Run, But Have You Ever Seen This Incredibly Rare “Bonefish Run”?

Down in South Florida, the Mullet Run is currently in full effect…

If you aren’t familiar with the Mullet Run, it is the time of year on the east coast of Florida when the mullet migrate south along the Atlantic coast before heading offshore to spawn.

So when I came across this rare video footage of 10,000+ bonefish making their run to spawn offshore, I couldn’t think of a better time to post it.

Just wait until you see how big this school of bonefish is! And it is really wild to see bonefish coming up towards the top of the water like a porpoise before heading down to 160ft!

Not your typical bonefish move by any stretch of the imagination.

Here are the notes from the video:

During a recent expedition to The Bahamas, Dr. Andy Danylchuk (UMass Amherst), Dr. Aaron Adams (Bonefish & Tarpon Trust/Florida Institute of Technology), Dr. Jon Shenker (Florida Institute of Technology), and Zack Jud (Florida International University) reconfirmed that bonefish form massive spawning aggregations at very specific locations during specific lunar days

This bonefish run footage reconfirmed that bonefish form massive spawning aggregations at very specific locations during specific lunar days. Using manual tracking and depth sensors, they also documented that bonefish use depths of greater than 160 feet (50 m) when spawning, after which they return quickly to shallow water.

Enjoy this wild “Bonefish Run”.

Blacktip Shark Attacks 8-Year Old Boy Caught On Film!

WOWZERS!

Talk about a day of spearfishing that this 8-year old kid will never forget!

And thank goodness he had a spear to prod the shark away, or this brave young kid could have had more proof of this “shark attack/charge” than just the GoPro video footage…

This kid is definitely Salt Strong!

Here are the notes from the video:

WHILE ENJOYING A DAY SEARCHING THE OUT REEFS. A 5 FT BLACK TIP SHARK GOES AFTER NATHAN GRANET (8) …NATE HELD HIS SPEAR OUT FOR PROTECTION, WHILE DAD WAS HANDED A SPEAR QUICKLY BY NATES BIG BROTHER HOLDEN (ON BOAT) AND FENDED OFF SHARK.

THE LOCAL BAHAMIANS BLAMED RENEGADE SHARK FEEDING OPERATIONS FROM THE US FOR CREATING HOSTILE SHARKS AGGRESSIVE TO HUMANS. THE ATTACK WAS UNPROVOKED.

WE HAD SPEARED NO FISH AND HAD JUST ARRIVED AT THE SHOAL WEST OF WALKERS CAY. NATHAN WAS BACK IN THE WATER THE FOLLOWING DAY ENJOYING THE BEAUTIFUL BAHAMIAN REEFS. ….BRAVE 8 YROLD BOY

Make sure to watch the part at the end where they show the shark attack in Slo-Mo1

Tiger Shark Eats Camera And Then Spits It Out All On Film!

It seems almost unbelievable, but this is an entirely different Tiger Shark encounter than the video we posted a month ago called “Tiger Shark Steals Camera, Shakes Off Diver, And Then Continues Filming” (watch it here).

And this is some pretty wild footage!

I won’t ruin it for you, but let’s just say you get a “Dentist” view of this big Tiger Shark’s mouth around the 3:30 mark.

And apparently the shark didn’t like the taste of film, as he quickly spits the camera out. Haha.

This great shark footage filmed By Stuart Cove and his team from Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas and documented with still photography by world-renowned underwater still photographer Stephen Frink.

Tiger Shark Steals Camera, Shakes Off Diver, And Then Continues Filming!

Some sharks love being in front of the camera, and some sharks hate it… and this shark was of the latter group for sure.

Apparently this tiger shark was fed up with scuba divers taking footage while down in the Bahamas, and he decided to take matters into his own hands… or mouth.

Kudos to the diver for having the courage to hang on to the camera while the massive shark pulled him through the water.

But eventually the shark made a roll, knocking the diver loose, and he was on his way to film Water World II with Kevin Costner. Haha.

I am guessing this was a pretty expensive underwater camera. Wonder if they ever found it? Let us know if you have any details.

My guess is that it’s sitting on the ocean floor somewhere with some amazing shark footage.

Either way, enjoy!

Polespearing, Shipwrecks, and Crystal Blue Water…

A little over a month ago, we put out a video on our home page from 13-time World Record Spearfishing “Champion” Cameron Kirkconnell that went somewhat Viral called “Pole Spearing a Monster Predator Fish” (you can watch that video here).

And no offense to that video (as it was freaking awesome), but this other polespear fishing video below that Cameron Kirkconnell and Perrin James (of Last Breath Films) created is pretty unbeatable.

In this epic polespear fishing video, Cameron takes another one of his exclusive dive trips with some clients (this time in the Bahamas), and they pretty much do it all.

Shipwrecks, sharks, spears stingrays, you name it (even if it doesn’t start with an “S”)

P.S. – If the music in this video sounds familiar, it’s because it is the same artist (Glass Animal) that was in the Super-Viral fishing video “Helpless Tarpon Rescued by Dead Jack Decoy in Florida Keys” (watch that video here)

P.P.S. – If you think your angler, diver, or spearfishing friends would find this video amazing, please share it with them – I’d really appreciate it.

Shark vs Bonefish…

Bonefish are known as one of the tougher fish to catch on the flats.

And after watching this video, I believe that this “bonefish legend” holds true for both man and shark…

You see, this fish are incredibly gifted at camouflaging themselves to blend in with the sandy bottom, they spook incredibly easy, and they are quite fast.

So when this shark saw that a local bonefish was hooked, he decided it might be a quick meal…

However, the bonefish had other plans.

Even while hooked on this angler’s fly line, the bonefish was able to escape the larger, but slower to react shark.

Finally, once the shark sees the angler there, the shark becomes tired of being made to look like a fool on camera, and quickly leaves the scene…

Well done bonefish, and well done angler on helping out the bonefish.

And thanks for sharing Fish along

Hooked Bonefish = Salt Strong

 

Shark Steals GoPro From Diver While Filming

We have seen some creative underwater GoPro footage of sharks before, but this one takes the blue ribbon…

Not only did professional photographer/videographer Eric Cheng build an amazing GoPro mounting system to get raw footage of sharks eating, he managed to get some of the best shark footage we have seen yet.

And at one point in the video, one of the Reef Sharks steals the GoPro (while still filming) and takes some great footage while in his mouth.

Well done Eric!

This is epic footage, and well worth the risk of the GoPro to get this kind of footage from a shark’s mouth.

Note: This was all filmed down in the Bahamas and these are Lemon Sharks and Reef Sharks
