My dive buddy's and I were diving a wreck and I checked under a piece of the metal from the wreck and I saw the fish. I went back up to take a breath and then went back down and shot it on its side and it swam out of the wreck while taking the float line, then the fish went back into the wreck in a different spot. The float line was wrapped around the metal from the wreck, so I went back down and shoot it again to try to work the fish out of the wreck. I went back down to grab the fish but the line was wrapped around the wreck so I disconnected the float line from the pole spear and grabbed the fish out of the wreck to the surface then brought it to the boat.
