About eleven o clock in the morning we arrived in the small beach at the end of Alykes from the side of Kritharia. We swam about 300 meters and arrived in the place of the rocks. About two o clock i caught a Goldblotch Grouper and 14-56 i tried a final ambush on a rock in depth 19,5 meters where i saw before a few days two big Amberjacks. I was in the limit of thermocline and made some noise from my larynx to approach some fish. Suddenly i saw the Aurata to pass higher than me. I made a long shot and the spear hit the fish near the tail. Fortunately with gentle moves i brought the fish to the surface and caught it.
