ientilenico Photo by Martin Raatz of me feeding a couple of tigers at a spot that was new to me. As a feeder, I try to keep the Tigers close to the group and set the divers up with photo opportunities. There's more to setting up the bait crate then people might realize. The tigers aren't picky but there are some steps to consider before a feeding : not too many pieces but enough to last for almost the whole dive. Not too fresh (or the lemons and reef sharks overwhelm you and the Tigers (surprisingly), but not too washed out. Pieces of fish should not be too big, flimsy nor too small. Tigers are famous for sneaking up behind people which can be tricky for the feeder especially on dives like this when there are more than two big girls and the group is in the sand with no reef or artificial reef behind you for a little extra security. Winter and spring 2015 sure was unforgettable for me and I owe it to the sharks and all the great shark divers that were there sharing the experience. Having passengers send you photos and videos is the cherry on top. :) #sharkfeeder #chumfiesta #bahamas #conservation through #underwater #photography #shark #dive #scuba #dolphindream #ocean #sharks #sharky #sharkdive #sharkporn #sharkdiver #sharklover #wiro #tiger #tigerbeach #tigersharks 2h
