We were drift diving a small rocky channel just outside staniel cay, exuma Bahamas. The depth was approx. 35ft, the visibility was 60+ft, The current was extremely strong with an incoming tide. I descended to the bottom and rode the incoming current Looking for anything of size to take for dinner. As I came across a large ledge I noticed two large Midnight parrot fish foraging on the coral surrounding the ledge. I was able to cock my pole spear and take the largest of the pair. As I surfaced I called for the boat to come and pick me and my catch up.
