Default 07.25.15 Grouper

Well, suffice it to say this is the biggest Grouper I've ever shot. Tag team effort with my long-time dive buddy Steve McWilliams off of Chad Toner's World Cat. FWC weighed it in at about 32 pounds and, as you can see in the pic, a good portion of the gut was missing. I'm pretty sure my new nickname will be "Gutshot" but, hey, the meat is in the cooler!

Nice fish! Was he out in the open or tucked up in the reef?

He was playing hide and seek. In and out of a man-made structure. Some kind of long metal structure with lots of cross-supports. He stuck his head out just enough to make me think I had a good shot, then darted just as I squeezed the trigger. Didn't damage the meat. When that spear pulled out, he ran back into the structure and my dive-buddy got a shot on him from above. In the cooler, then on the grille on cedar planks.

Gut Shot Bill? LOL

More like Butt Shot. You blew that grouper's arse off.

Also, you need to fire the photographer. He didn't include the whole fish.

Enjoyed the dives. We need to do it again.
