Eaten by a whale, and lived

So, he wasn't 'swallowed', but got a ride in the whale's mouth. They have a big pocket like a pelican for engulfing schools of bunker or shrimp, but a relatively small gullet that would not pass a human. Still can't have been fun. The whale must have been all "WTF is in my mouth???"

A couple years back I was in a massive school of macks feeding on sand eels just down from Mike I can see how it would happen and yes some of the toilets are mine:):)

At least the whale was kind enough to spit him out at the surface. That must have been terrifying, but when you dive near GW’s I guess it’s all relative

Time to give up diving?

Hit by boat? yes

Surfaced and pick up boat was gone! yes

Had to swim to shore because pick up boat would not start! yes

lost in the fog for two hours drifting off shore! yes

Great white sitting next to boat before dive! yes

A few years ago I snagged a toilet with my umbrella rig on 30 lb mono. I was able to bring the bowl to the surface and retrieve my umbrella rig. All of us had a good laugh that day.
