Fishing started early this day. I was on the spot at 7:45 after visiting two other spots that did not give me any fish. After one ambush I did not spot any fish , so I decided to search inside a familiar stone that in the past days hosted a big Epinephelus marginatus. Instead of the big grouper I saw the tail of a big goldblocth grouper. I took the chance to make a very good shot on the head , that paralyzed the fish. After one dive I managed to take out of the hole the big goldblotch. The wind force was 5bf the surface temperature was 26oC and the current speed was 0,5 knots
