we were diving a spot that we usually dive near shore. It was an amazing dive and we were after small fish in general. I spotted this guy on the way in under a ledge and did have the chance to get near him. a few hours later, on our way out and just before sunset, I decided to look under that ledge one more time to see if he is there and he was. I took the chance to shoot with my little polespear and blasted him in the head. the only way for him out was my direction so he came right at me. I grabbed him by the gills and that was it. the fish of a life time in between my hands.
