Marcus, thanks, glad you enjoyed the video. No it was actually West of the MG. A little rocky area that's usually fishy.

The secret is always that those goliaths have never come to the point where they understood that food was being made available to them and there was little the divers could do to ward them off.

They're not too smart.overall, but once they learn a thing like fish stealing, it never goes away. Kind of like most wild animals in that regard.

But, it helps a lot to just shoot fish that are too big for the Goliaths to eat. That's Dan's main strategy.

Re: HeadHunter Video

That was funny! Can't say that's ever happened to me. I hope he ended up on your stringer as punishment!

Re: HeadHunter Video

Oh man... When I saw the lower quality cell phone video I thought it was the fish you were stringing. That is some funny shit. He was pissed at you. Maybe those reds aren't as dumb as we think they are.

I had a Hogfish try to bite me once after a poor shot. I was a little taken back as it was the first time I had a fish really try to defend itself.

Re: HeadHunter Video

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wrasse...a_lunare_1.jpg

I had a wrasse like the one above deliberately bite a bud of mine and then me. My bud was trying to take the hook out of his mouth when he exclaimed "Ow, it bit me!". I looked at him like he had another head growing out his shoulders. I then grabbed the fish mid body and that sucker bent around like a snake and bit my thumb. I was like "damn!" we better get this thing back in the water before someone else gets hurt.

That was funny! I've had triggers attack me before but never seen a red grouper so aggressive.
