I am still very excited as I write this story… Ooh buenos dias by the way, hello, this is Anibal. I want to share a great adventure with you. When I woke up this morning I had no idea that this day would be so fantastic. It looked like a ´normal´ day in paradise. Some spearfishing in very nice weather and some very motivated guests to get some fish. Today, Klint joined us and Leo told me “Klint does not want little bait fish”. Those words were in my mind the whole time. Not that I shoot baitfish… but his message was clear; it´s time you shoot something big Anibal. Klint did not have any spearfishing experience and was super excited to give it a try.
We ended up with Spanish mackerel, Triggerfish and a Snapper but what I wanted to tell you is that I shot my first Horse Eye Jack today. I´ve been listening to Rodrigo´s and Leo´s advise and always wanted to shoot one myself. Well this was my day. We went to a reef I like a lot; it has many coral heads and many different type of fishes. Most of the time, Horse Eye Jack is seen in more open water, but this day we saw two of them swimming around a coral head. I felt my heart beating like crazy and heard the words of Leo in my head… No baitfish, No baitfish. I decided to go for it and one minute later I shot my first Horse Eye Jack. Thank you Klint for the inspiration and thank you for a great time spearfishing together.
