I had been targetting jack crevalle with my polespear the last couple times i went out, but had no luck. This time instead of targeting them we just went out to see what we could get. As we were headed to the first wreck we saw a black color of fish a little ways offshore. My dad told me to get ready because he knew they had to be jacks! Me and my brother geared up and he jumped in with me as my safety diver! We drifted up to a huge school of crevalles, i cocked the band on my polespear as far up as i could as quickly as possible, dive down and shot the first one i locked my eyes on down through the back and out the side! I let go of my polespear and then slowly regained control of him til i got him back in the boat!
