Have any of you dove and or encountered sharks? If so, could you share your experiences?

I'm deathly afraid of sharks, are they really all that bad? Going on a course which involves a lot of surface swimming with fins so I'm shitting bricks!!

I've dove with multiple flavors of sharks off of the coast of Florida. Hammerhead, Lemon, Blacktip, Nurse, and one cheeky blue shark.

Also a few barracuda but they're just shark-posers.

Anyways, first thing, swear to god, they told me in Dive School was this; "Sharks are more afraid of you, than you are them." And that's the damn truth. They're undersea buzzards for a lack of a better analogy and timid as shit unless their is food.

We were spearing fish in this place called 'Shark Canyon' (great name). Back when feeding sharks was legal in FL people used to do it there all the time. But it ain't allowed anymore so we were doing it so we could feed this Goliath Grouper who was following us around.

Long story short a shitton of sharks showed up cause the poor fucks thought it was feeding time again but instead they just got disappointment and circled us in heavy currents for a while before fucking off when we did.

I like em, personally.

Oh, and you're more likely to die in an airplane crash than get bitten by a shark under normal circumstances. Unless you fucking cut your wrists underwater. Then you're just acting like dying prey, and like any good buzzards, they'll come and check you out.
Never been diving but I've caught a few sharks on rod and reel in the gulf. Biggest one was maybe 4.5ft. Always released them pretty quickly after I landed them.

Hi, /out/. I have never posted here before. I am from /k/

Basically, I recently started dating a girl who is really into fishing and, while I am an outdoorsy guy, I have never actually been fishing. Never really gave the sport much thought until now.

How do I get into fishing? Where do I even start? I want to be able to share the hobby with her. I realize that's a pretty broad question, but I'm curious. How did you start?

Thank u frens

Learn to tie a fisherman’s knot. Can’t fish if your hook isn’t attached.
Buy a rod/reel combo. Also a pack of spoons, bobbers, hooks, sinkers, and a stringer. Then a jar of powerbait and a license.

Go to your state's dnr website and check the trout stocking schedule. Find the most recent plant in your county.

Look up a YouTube video of casting your chosen reel. Go to the dock and make sure there's nobody behind you. The spoons are used by casting, then reeling in at various speeds. Jerk the rod straight up if you feel a bite.
Cut a length of line to use the bait. Tie one end to the bobber, and the other to the hook (I use a Turle knot, since it's so simple). The bait will float, so add the sinker to determine how high up you want it to be. Take a wad of bait larger than your hook and knead it to cover the whole thing.
Jerk as your bobber twitches.

Jam the needle end of your stringer through the gill side and out the mouth of your first catch. Run it through the ring, and tie the end to the dock (clove hitch). Limit in my state is 5, so I catch 4 and release unless I get a big one. String the fish BEFORE removing the hook.

If you're not obnoxious with it, pier fishing is a social activity. Talk about what works, what others have caught. They'll be happy to answer intermittent questions. Also, the dock is a smoking area. Get over it, or fish elsewhere.
let her teach you. women don’t get a lot of opportunities to teach us things or be better at something than us. it’ll make you two closer if you let her have this rather than learn everything you can before you go.
Learn from her. She wont think any less of you and will be fucking ecstatic you're interested in her hobby.

Definitely turtles. I once stumbled on what I assume was two turtles in the delicate act of foreplay; a smallish turtle was banging himself repeatedly and loudly (which was how I found them) on a much larger (at least double his size) turtle. They stopped when they saw me, and I felt bad for the little guy whose chance to score I disrupted.

Pic related, I had to fish that shit out of my derelict flickr account. Please excuse the color editing, I was playing around wit that stuff at the time (three years ago).

I also see dead animals every once in a while, mostly cows since I walk along grazing areas a lot. While not exactly something that's nice to see, there's a sad beauty to it I think. Especially when they pose as dramatically as this one did.
Neat. How long usually do the animals you find sit around before they're nothing but bones?

Thank you for proving my point. Greenbrier county WV has 1199 publicized caves.
How did that prove your point? White county has more (1221) than Greenbrier, and TN has the largest undeground lake, the widest cave biodiversity in the US, etc.

It's hard to say exactly, but basically some combination of temperatures, elevation, sunlight, etc will support different plant life. The plants you'd consistently see at 400' will be different than the ones you see at 1400' (for trees, heavy oak may give way to pine). On a twisty trail there will be sections with significantly more greening in spring than others, probably because of sunlight (or more noticeably, in winter, one area will have a frozen ground and another will not, again because of sunlight). And of course the presence of water changes things quite a bit.
Almost all of them. I have trouble with the smaller shrubs but the big trees are easy

t. Forced to take a dendrology class
I know all of the trees in my area and most scientific names. I know about 100 species of plants and some scientific names. It's extremely fun but it's hard to get people to go for walks and just stop and look at plants with you. My gf will let me talk at her and stop to look at stuff. Getting yourself a good i.d. guide is necessary to learn plants but there's so many shitty ones that it's really hard to finally find one that works well. The only other way is to have someone teach you. I learned from a combination of both.

Feel free to post tobaccos (no weed allowed), pipes, collections, pics of favorite combos for going /out/, pics of what you're doing with your pipe and any questions you might have.

Want to get into smoking pipes without spending too much cash?
Get a Missouri Meerschaum Legend corncob pipe and a pouch of either Prince Albert, Carter Hall or Half and Half tobacco, available at most drugstores.
What you'll need: pipe, tobacco, lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, and either a regular old nail or a pipe tool (combination tamper, scoop, and small pick).
All of these together should run you less than $20.

Having trouble keeping your pipe lit? Fill it with less tobacco and smoke it slower than you think you need to, lightly tamping as needed when the smoke starts thinning out.
If you're still having trouble, try filling your pipe this way:

It's called a Nata. Personally I'd just get an axe but hey, give it a try. If it was used for hundreds and hundreds of years it probably is decent for what it was used for, which was splitting kindling and chopping small branches.
