On April 22nd, 2016 I was diving in the Berry Islands of the Bahamas with friends Trevor Bacon, Chris Brady, and Dean Jacobs. We were checking out sandy bottoms and coral outcroppings in about 50 feet of water when suddenly Trevor started shouting about big Mackerel coming through the area. I saw the largest Cero Mackerel I’d ever seen and took at 12-foot shot with my Hawaiian sling. The shot was clean and immobilized the fish immediately. I quickly swam the fish to the surface and put it on the deck of the newly christened Lady G.
