On March 9th we were running a weed line about 12 miles offshore looking for dolphin. We came across a nice school of fish. I hopped in with my spear and started looking for a bigger fish to shoot. After a couple minutes in the water I noticed a larger bull dolphin with a couple of smaller cows. I stalked him for about a minute and was able to get a shot on him. Boated the fish with no assistance shortly thereafter.
