saw a sailfish earlier in the dive - got out of the water onto the boat for a break, and jumped back in and kicked over to where they were last seen. school of fish came by and I took my shot. got a nice shot in the gills, it shook and blood came out of the gills then and it took me & my float for a bit of a ride and then died! swam down to it brained it and kicked it back to the boat! it was amazing!! I have it on video of the shot and the kill!!
