We were actually looking for wahoo as there had been some in the area the last few days. I was doing a slow 360 degree circle at around 10 m in depth and noticed three sailfish coming in from the one side of my vision. So I slowly started ascending to their level and waited for them to turn parallel to me to put the best shot that I could in the largest of the three. So thankful for the opportunity to hunt and eat this magnificent fish.
