Fishing for Barracuda! So near and yet so far. It got away. Pity, that would have been enough for two meals for the seven of us! This is a still from the video, which - even if we had the bandwidth to send - we could not publish because of the shocking language as it (literally) slung it’s hook. But this was not our only escapee: early on in the trip, Peter and Anthony hauled in a small bonito, which pulled the same stunt. Next catch gets it between the eyes with the spear gun!
