Arrived at what we spearo's call Bonita rock which is about 5 miles of the coast of Hamilton beach in the western area of Freetown at around 1pm water was very calm nice and warm visibility was very good for our waters approx 8 to 10 meters there's one big rock on that reef with a hole that you can see right through , I always inspect that hole as I have been lucky in the past with descent size fish when I looked inside the Snapper was there it tried very slowly to hide to the right hand side of the rock by then I had pulled the trigger from the back of the gill shaft exited from the front on top of the eye it did not even shake took it out and had a good feeling that this would be a record of some sort .
