On my first day en Conakry, on my second dive, I was trying to find were the fish could come from in the current in Roume, then in my left site 4 of this giant fish passed about 5 meters from me. I could not beleived what I was seeing and it took me a few second to realise. I was on the end of my apnea, tried to come closer and could shoot the fish right under the head. My gun was only with a reel and no breakway, I way almost water skying on the surface, and after 10 minutes, we succeded to take back the fish on the boat. A great memory.
