We spent most of the morning diving rocky pinnacles in about 25-30ft. The sun was high and brite and the visibility was 60+ Ft. We were shooting lots of medium size snapper when a barracuda suddenly appeared. He managed to remove a nice size snapper from the end of my pole spear. Remembering that one of the local bahamians has constantly remined me that he and his family enjoy eating barracuda over most other fish commonly found, I managed to get a shot on the Cuda. When we brought the fish back to the dock the man was very thankful of the meal we were able to provide his family.
