I wrote before about us liking spearfishing around shipwrecks. I just went through some pictures of last few days and I really wanted to share this one. It shows exactly why we like it so much.
Myself as a little boy, loved the “hide and seek” game. Especially hiding. Thinking about a strategy before hiding and of course trying not to loose the game. When I am hunting around a shipwreck, it feels like playing hide and seek like in the old days.
Though now I am hiding and seeking at the same time, hihi.
This wreck is not complete anymore, but it is soooo beautiful. While I took this picture I was at about only 35 ft.
Around the contours of the wreck there are thousands of small silver fishes. Between the wreck and those fishes you might see big fish hiding. For example, look at the right, on the highest point of the wreck. You see that shadow? That is a fish… Wow….
In this case, while hunting you will move closely to the wreck, the little fish will go away. You take your position, the little fish come back and you are hiding. Hiding for big fish that is around. So… now it is pretty handy when you can hold your breath for a while.
Underwater Hide and Seek, love it!
