Drifting over a wreck in 200' of water we hung our flashers and in less than 20 minutes we had a few bulls interested, my buddy Ryan went down and took out the first cobia with his Rob Allen speargun that was riding along with the shark. About 10 minutes later i saw a big bull with one single big cobia under his belly swimming around the flasher I dropped down to his level about 45' below the surface got as close as i could to and let the polespear fly smashing him in the rib cage area. After a short battle i was able to get him up to the surface and away from the sharks and evantually into the boat.
