I saw the grouper from the surface on a ledge. I took a few dives on him but every time I got to the bottom the fish was deep in a hole. It finally swam out into the open and I took a good breathe up and swam down towards it. I then loaded up my Neritic Big Blue and took a shot on the fish from above hitting it in the top of the head. He tried to run into the ledge and I pulled him away as I swam up with my belt reel. I reached the surface and pulled the fish up to me with the belt reel line. I grabbed the fish and put him in the boat!
