We were at Saint Helena for a 5 day fish trip, in the last day we decided do go to a different spot, a little futher from the capital. After 40 minutes we arrived at the spot. Great conditions, clear water and no current. when we were getting close to the spot we saw a whale shark swiming slowly and decided to hurry to swin with it. As soon as we I went underwater I notice there were a few rocks in the bottow, as deeph as 15 meters and on the top of it there was one big black jack. I decided to sink straight to its direction and mid way down I shooted without and resistence from the fish, as it was surprised and didnt see me comming. It was a decent shoot and there were no need for a second one, after that was just a matter of celebrate and take some pictures to continue fishing and serching for more thophies.
