Just arrived at a spot which is about 20 meters deep as I was swimming towards the marker buoy I use incase of current to mark the reef I decided to go down and check if there was any passing fish before hitting the rocks , and at about 17 meters I saw a few what we locally call Spanish and these fish are rarely seen as they live in waters between the sea and the river in 35 years of spearfishing this is my second one so i took a shot on the bigger one in the back which bent the 8mm shaft I was using and gave me a good fight luckily it was well shot so I managed to bring it up with a single shot.
