We were anchored at Argus tower and I was swimming threw the chum slick at the back of the boat. There was a large school of Bermuda Chubs underneath me and i could see a few of the jacks hanging out underneath them. I dove down about 40 ft and one of the jacks swam towards me, as it got close it turned and I shot it. It dove down and I released the spear and pressured the float line as I ascended. Once at the surface I pulled the fish in with the float line and subdued it with my dive knife. I then swam to the boat and handed it to Hamish Burns who scooped it in a dip net and pulled it into the boat.
