We were diving Argus tower when I saw 4 wahoo approaching. Luckily the largest one came close in a curious manor and I dove on it very slow. It began to turn away and as it did I shot it. The slip tip detached and the fish took off. I pressured the float line until I got the fish close enough to place a second shot in its head to kill it. I then swam the fish back to the boat where captain Nick Cabral gaffed it and pulled it into the boat. Apologies for being too vague with description. The second spear was also a riffe pole spear attached to a floatline and a bouy. It belonged to brian steinhoff who was also diving. If his contact information is needed i can provide. Also i know the picture of the fish on the scale is hard to read, so if this is an issue i have a video of the fish on scale spanning everything needed. Also i would like to emphasize that Brian handed me the spear unloaded and did not handle and float lines or assist in the capture of the fish in any way. I hope this is sufficient, and if any other details are needed please do let me know. James .
