On our last dive of the day we jumped in and was greeted with Crystal clear water. We were diving for about an hour when in the distance I spotted this beauty. It was out in the open so I dropped down and slowly kicked towards it. But it quickly swam under a boulder. I ascended back up to the surface and got ready to take another dive. As I got to the boulder I peered in and there he was slowly trying to back itself out of the hole. I took my shot and stoned him. Once I got my hands on him I realized how big this guy was and possibly a world record.
