We are taking to the oceans, seas, lakes, and rivers to hunt down the water creatures. These creatures include things like mermaids/mermen, sea dragons, grindylow, kelpie, hippocampus, selkie, hydra, water sprites, siren, kraken, leviathan, nymph, sea serpent and the Lock Ness Monster. These creatures are all unique but we have certain tools that we will use to hunt these creatures.

1. The first thing is you are going to need a boat and remember get the right size so you aren’t saying “I think we are going to need a bigger boat.”
Read a book with a character who sails on a boat or with a boat on the cover.The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband by Julia Quinn

2. You will also need some live bait to lure these creatures.
Read a book where someone or something is used as bait to catch something/someone – Beautiful Beast by E.J. Hill

3. Having bait is important but you will also need some chum buckets
Read a book with all the letters of CHUM in the title

4. When you find that creature you will need a weapon to fight with that works well in water so try a spear fishing gun
Read a book with a gun or a spear on the cover – Blood Challenge by Eileen Wilks

5. You can also try using a harpoon
Read a book whose author initial can be found in Harpoon – Beard in Mind by Penny Reid

6. In order to fight water creatures you are going to have to be willing to go into the water
Read a book with a body of water on the cover – Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper

7. Some of these creatures live in coder climates so the water is freezing. You will need either a wet or a dry suit
Read a book with a suit on the cover – The Player and the Pixie by L.H. Cosway & Penny Reid

8. You are going to need to be able to see so you can sneak up on these monsters so have a good dive mask.
Read a book with a mask on the cover

9. You need to be able to swim quickly to catch some of these creatures and fins will help you with that
Read a book with feet on the cover – Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey

10. A lot of these creatures can breathe under water but unfortunately we can’t so you will need a scuba tank
Read a book where a character breathes under water

11. Of course you also need a regulator to make the tank work for you
Read a book whose title starts with the letter “R” – Rolling with the Punchlines by Urzila Carlson

12. You are going to need to keep track of how deep you are diving and be prepared to go to the depths of the body of water you are hunting in. Have a good depth gauge.
Read a book that you consider deep – Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward

13. You won’t always be deep – at times you’ll be skimming along the top looking for clues to the monster habitats. A snorkel will make that much easier.
Read a book where you have an urge to skim certain parts of the book – Born Free by Joy Adamson

14. There are a lot of dangerous things in the water so protect yourself by wearing dive gloves
Read a book with gloves on the cover – Marry in Haste by Anne Gracie

15. In order to catch or see your prey it helps to have some underwater lights as well
Read a book with lights on the cover

16. Of course you should never dive alone so make sure you have a partner to help you hunt these creatures
Read a romance – Kiss of Heat by Lora Leigh

17. You’ll need to communicate with your partner under water so take along some Tank Bangers (yes that’s a thing)
Read a book where the MC suffers from miscommunication with someone – Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy

18. Another great way to communicate is with Writing Slates

19. Sometimes you can get in a bit of trouble and it’s important to have a good dive knife to help you get out of it.

20. You’ll want to prove that these creatures actually exist so carry an underwater camera with you

21. Of course you will want to keep track of all the information you get while searching for these creatures so keep a good dive log book for your research
Read a book where a character does research on something or a character who keeps a journal – Necromancing the Stone by Lish McBride

22. If you have the money and resources a good dive computer is a great tool to have as well.
Read a book where a character works with computers – The Hooker and the Hermit by L.H. Cosway & Penny Reid

23. Hunting underwater creatures isn’t for the faint of heart and it requires some money as well but this kit will supply all of the items above except the boat, the dive computer and of course your partner.
