Spear fishermen and women that have supplied themselves for a while with nice fresh Snapper and Grouper for dinner, dream about blue water hunting pelagic spearfishing. Welcome to Mexico.
I realize that some “spearfishing heroes” might not like what I am writing at the moment. Let´s be honest with you. Shooting a smart Snapper in Mexico is more difficult than shooting a Sailfish. What?!?!?! I´m sorry folks, pero asi es. Many people I meet are hunting and improving their hunting skills to reach a goal: hunting pelagic in blue water. Let´s set things straight. Shooting a big Cubera Snapper requires so much more skills than shooting a big Sailfish for example.
Spearfishing you do for having a good time and for food. Spearfishing for pelagic is a different activity. We don´t like to do that close to shore or in diving areas. Just does not feel right. But in the middle of the ocean it is game on.
January. Calm ocean. Pacific side of Mexico. 30 nautical miles from shore. Adventure. Talking to my buddy. What´s the plan? Well there is no plan Leo, hahaha. I could not believe it. No land to be seen. Just blue around me, no reef, just deeeeeep ocean. And we have no plan.
While I was drinking a bottle of water (and yes Jeff, I also sucked up a Mud energy gel, jeje), I could not believe what I saw. Again a huge black thing coming out of the ocean: a whale. Wow, so beautiful to watch. Too late to grab my camera. But while I was trying to grab it, something smaller passed our little boat. What the “(/&”/%? A Sailfish passing by. Forget about the camera Leo, jump in the water and start hunting.
That lasted 2 hours without seeing a single (big) fish. Some might call it persistent, others call that being stubborn.
