A couple friends and I were out spearfishing over the weekend. There was a heavy current and poor visibility every place we checked. At one of our last stops I hopped in the water and swam over to a ledge, curled over the top and the snapper was sitting under the lip to the left. It let me get fairly close before he tried of take off. I got a shot in the mid back with my Evolve pole spear and fought him to the surface. Best birthday weekend to date. Grateful for the adventure, company and the fish!
