These fish were swimming around everywhere for the past few weeks but were very smart and stayed far away. One day, during the slack tide, we spotted them schooled up to spawn. They must've been very hungry because when my dive partner dropped some chum they literally came in for the bait. They seemed not to notice when I dropped on them, and one swam straight towards me for a piece of chum. I took this golden opportunity and shot it right as it turned to get away. Took only a couple of minutes to land and brain um. Excellent day indeed. Chee hu!
