Fish you find anywhere in the ocean. In the open water. Near Reefs, near drifting stuff, near fresh water sources, and also near shipwrecks. We have quite a few over here in Mexico and I honestly… get to like them more and more. I am traveling to explore shipwrecks and to spear around them. Many people think “Shipwrecks , ooooh no es para mi…. deep water, dangerous”. But…. there are a good number of shipwrecks in only 30 ft of water for example and with good life around it.
Exploring a shipwreck is soooo nice to do. Multiple dives. Exploring each side of the wreck, looking in each hole, and waiting to see what kind of running fish passes by.
On this day I was spearfishing around a wreck with Umberto. I took a picture of him. He was patiently looking down at a Snapper he wanted so badly that was swimming around the wreck (yes he did get it at the end!).
We take a look inside wrecks, but never dive into them. Besides that (of course), a buddy is always watching you. Just in case.
