Yep...
Keem is dead. You might get some flats of the beach and you might get more species after dark but its in a bad way.
Don t even bother any more and it was once my favourite mark.
spear fished as well - which is just a disaster. :evil:
Saw them with five dead ballans and not even a half decent size. Ridiculous.
