Then there was this little beast. I’m saying he weighed in at about 23 lbs, but my brother insist on sending me a new digital scale! Ok, so he wasn’t that big but plenty big enough to feed everyone for a couple days. I had just shot at a monster 40″ plus grouper from two feet away and missed, I know don’t tell me.. I swam along in total defeat until I spotted another nice grouper in the low 30″ category. Determined to not let him get away I slowly followed from the surface until he finally ducked into a hole about 35 feet down.
Big breath and down I went to blast his ass. I got to the bottom, stuck my head in the hole to let my eyes adjust and just as they were adjusting I saw a huge eye right in front of me. I squeezed off a shot and went for the surface gagging for air. After about 12 dives back down and getting all up in this nice tight hole I retrieved this beast. Not the grouper, but then again not to bad either!
