Default Speared My First Mahi! With Video

‎9/23/11 Out Spearfishing. While underway, saw a big floating piece of wood with gnarled up branches, and pulled up near it. Ton of triple tail on it, then I saw that pretty flash of gold and green at 100 miles an hour, and yelled "Mahi!"

Mike and I grabbed our gun and mask, and I decided what the hell, grab my camera too. Glad I did. 2 small Mahi zoomed by about 10 feet in front of us when we swam to the log. I tracked the front one, and he started to turn before I pulled the trigger, so I immediately lined on the second one, and with a split second of time to react, pulled the trigger.

Stone shot right through the head. Only 3 fish I have never shot that I have been wanting to, the 3 pelagics, Mahi, Tuna, and Wahoo. Now I'm proud 2 say, it's only 2 left on the list, which will involve a dive trip to the rigs one day soon.

Great day out

Here's the link to the video.
