First dive of the day jumped in the water to check out a spot that had produced some good fish the day before. Just off Crooked Island wall is a crack in the reef that seemed to be endless in depth as well as having endless amounts of good sized fish, I made my way to the bottom and started creeping along the crack which was maybe one foot wide. As I was checking out the area out of the corner of my eye I saw a tail of what I knew was a good sized Snapped, I made my way over to where I saw it and out of the darkness emerged the head of a huge Dog Snapper. I didn't waste any time, immediately put my Polespear in his head and that was all she wrote.... Made my way to the boat, stoked to have landed this fish and a killer way to start the day...
