Hello my friends, Anibal here again. Though I am a little late I wanna wish you all a great 2013. Enjoy!!! This year started pretty well. I think the first week of January was national Snapper week. Leo and I both saw a lot of Snapper. In Playa del Carmen, we saw HUGE Cubera Snappers in the blue (uhhh yes) and in Cozumel I had a fight with a HUGE Cubera Snapper. I was able to shoot it, but the shaft of my spare speargun broke and we lost it (also a week of some equipment loss, uff).
I got introduced to three “regular” guests. Leo calls them “the mahi mahi boys”. They LOVE to spearfish. We went out last Sunday. We did not see too much fish and when we did spot good fishes, they were gone before we knew. At this point, we have two options; getting negative or get extra motivated and concentrated. Close to the end of the trip, we spotted a nice Mutton Snapper. Niko did not hesitate, what an energy. He went down and got it. An easy and great shot for a nice fish. Congratulations amigo! The Mutton Snapper got prepared in a Mexican way and was eaten by six people.
I wanna thank JS, JE and Niko for some great spearfishing. See you next time!!!
