We were heading back to the Dinghy of Death to call it a day and I did a drop at the edge of the reef and was buzzed from the right by a school of Menpachi Ulua (Big Eye Trevally). But as quickly as they came they swam off into deeper water. I surfaced, quite bummed that I missed the chance to shoot one but breathed up and did another dive. At about 50ft down, they came in, again from my right. There were so many! But I set my sights on one, aimed my 100cm Pathos Laser and took the shot. It peeled off but I was able to pull it in and land it. Swam back and threw the fish in. Dinghy of Death indeed.
