Much better this afternoon. It laid down quite a bit when the wind died. Stop by Van dam the water water was pretty good at least 10 feet of visibility. Bad decision to eat a delicious Piaci pizza and a pint before going. Lost the pizza and pint in the water grab an ab and got out.

Did the weekend at caspar,and the vis was a hazy 15-20'   Pretty blue hue water.
The swell and wind waves were big 7-10'. No fish were harmed.
Saw a big octopus at about 30'but let him live(couldn't get him).
Missed my 10"ab by 1/8th,but good diving anyways.

I have seen some octopuses but was not sure if people shoot them or grab and stab with a knife. Well iam not hunting them until I figure that out.

Glad you had a good dive.

You gotta take them by hand.  Once they're in the kayak our at the surface, take a knife and cut their head open.  Remove the guts inside to kill them.  Be prepared for a wrestling match.

I will try on a smaller one next time I have the opportunity.  I have seen some of the bigger ones and think they may have a lot more fight in them.

This might make the most unpopular hunter post of the week, but it's why I don't hunt octo -- they're smarter than a lot of divers I know!   ;D

Totally agree. There are so many other sea creatures to eat that don't have a fraction of the intelligence of an octopus, and most don't require hours of prep to make them palatable.

Those suckas still scare me under water. Any thing that can swing 8 arms at me is considered dangerous!

My wife makes a killer ciapino and was just wondering how hard it would be to get my own octopus.   Along with some scallops and crab that I caught it would sure cut the cost down.  A small one shouldn't be that dangerous and I have no need for anything large.
