We stopped on our first spot in 40 ft. way inside the bank to the North of West End, Grand Bahama and immediately saw a couple stud Muttons. We shot a few while watching the bigger fish lurk in the distance. Finally, after keeping my eye on a single decent fish for a few minutes he made a turn underneath me and I made my drop. He swam away, but just as I settled myself on the bottom he turned around to check me out and gave me a decent shot with my Hawaiian Sling. He took off and rocked up about 100 yards away where I subdued him and got him to the boat.
