The story of this hunt starts bright and early, 3:45 a.m. to be exact. My morning routine before I dive is very simple, I make absolutely no effort to be quiet in an attempt to annoy and wake up my beautiful wife, Amy. I truly have no idea why she agreed to marry me and count my blessings every moment of everyday. However, she must have had ear plugs in because she managed to sleep through me making breakfast and getting my gear together. Oh well, time to wake her up with a kiss goodbye. I am standing at the foot of the bed getting ready to say goodbye and I get the overwhelming urge to tickle her feet so I grabbed her leg and went to town. She was up in an instant! I quickly give her a kiss and run out the door. The rest of the story is boring. We found fish and I managed to get close enough to poke one with my pole spear.
