    I shot him in 180' in the Elbow, it is about 90 miles southwest of Johns Pass in the GOM.

    The Gag Grouper was 50 lbs, 4' long.

    Zach, while 130 is considered the "sport" diving limit, 180 is possible.

    It would be a short, difficult and unsafe dive on air, but with Nitrox or another mixed gas, 180 isn't difficult.

    I realize that im guessing he was down there a few minutes ,taking into consideration all the decomp stops on the way up.
    Next im guessing hes going to say he was using a rebreather.
    Again i dive, i have dove all over the Caribbean and florida, also cold as ice california.
    You sure are cocky for a starving pilgrim.

    Apparently you don't know much about diving.

    BTW it is illegal to spearfish while using a rebreather.

    That dive was most likely on a light nitrox mix, probably around 24%, that was before I started diving heliotrox.

    I have been down to 240' on air before, it is not recommended, but we tend to dive deeper in an effort to shoot the bigger fish.

    A commercial diver I know shot a 403lb warsau grouper in 425'.

    Twilli has heard of divers on "air" going as deep as 250. Twilli only been down to 120 ft. Twilli has done decompression dives as training.

    I just took a minute and googled "rebreather and deep diving" I am reading about multiple cave dives done safely at depths of between 240 and 400.

    That is a bit deeper than 60 feet.

    See Section 18 (Technical Data) 100m is DEEP!

    Rebreathers fascinate me. One day, I hope to try one out. The idea of being able to glide through the water without the bubbles is AWESOME!

    Again you show your lack of knowledge on the subject, rebreathers have been used at depths far deeper than I have dove.

    Skeck Exley has been to 400'+ on air, it is not recommended and Sheck is now dead, but many people still do deep dives on air.

    At a partial pressure of 1.6 you are not supposed to go below 217' on air because you are taking a chance of an 02 hit.

    Now I prefer to ad some Helium to my gas so I am not as prone to nitrogen narcosis.
