Well…. after a couple of hours hard work and pretty deep diving we ran into a school of batefishes, barracuda and Jacks…. I dive down and stay in the middle of them. Being calm one Barracuda after another comes and checks me out. But then…. A school of Rainbow Runners appears out of nowhere and mixes in the school of fish that surrounded me. That`s the type if fish I want for lunch… I let them circle around me and I wait for the biggest one to be in front of my spear. There it is, pulled the trigger, got it! Going back to the surface very happy… On the surface I notice that someone got jealous. A medium sized barracuda is going straight towards my catch. Wow… It all happens in slow motion as I rethink it now. I see the jaws opening My Rainbowrunner (MY Rainbowrunner…) disappears in seńor Barracuda´s mouth.. 1 bite and the Barracuda is off… half of my fish out of its mouth. Ok Ok Ok, we share our catches…..
