While diving on the drop off we camevto the edge of the reef and there were a hundred barracudas and other fish and two big rainbow runners came into view just as we were preparing to get in the boat. Chad yelled to us there were monster rainbows and we threw some squid chum and they came right in and I was able to get a shot, It fought like hell on the floatline and luckily none of the sharks or barracudas ate him before we were able to get him to my hands and into the boat. Both Cameron and chad were freaking out excited because it is one of their favorite fish and both were really jealous and stoked for me at the same time. When we got home we weighed it and it was 11lbs !!! Thanks Cameron and Chad for guiding it was a fantastic birthday present
