Jonathan and I set out for a quick afternoon of spearfishing after work. We left my dock at 3:30 with a plan to go check a couple of spots for cobia and then try and pick up a few gags. We stop on small rock pile that has some really nice ledges and undercuts that the gags like to hole up under. I dive under and take a look inside an undercut to see a gag facing away from me. After a few more looks, I load my Headhunter pole spear, dive down, and let fly. The slip tip toggled mid body and made for an easy extraction from the ledge. On the next spot Jonathan pole speared a nice cobia to finish the day.
