New Bahamas video

We ran over to West End last weekend on my boat with Killian (KILLIAN), matt (mattt), and some friends and family, left friday and came back sunday. We stayed at Blue Marlin Cove both nights and dove for about 3 hours on friday. Day 1 ended with half of a nice mangrove after the sharks were done with him, a tiger, a nice mutton (my first with a polespear), a hog, a fat schoolmaster, a nice yellowjack, and a couple triggers. The second day we were in no rush to get in the water but ended up diving for probably 6 hours or so and ended the day with 4 hogs, a tiger, a nassau, 2 mangroves (one was my PB), my first cubera, my first midnight parrot, a nice yellowjack, and a few more triggers. I also tore off the first AP I had ever seen. On the last day we dove for about 4 hours and ended up with 5 hogs, my first black with a polespear, a tiger, a mutton, and a 35+ lb black.
The 35+ lb black was the last fish of the trip and it took us about an hour and a half to get him out of his hole in 53 ft. Killian spotted him cruising over the patches and followed him into a hole. He dove down put a good shot in his side and the grouper took off out the other side and shook the slip tip. I followed the fish into another hole that he somehow managed to wiggle his way into, but the only hole we could see him through was about the size of a cantaloupe. My friend and I both shot him through the hole in order to subdue him as best as we could. Killian then went down and put a gaff in his side under a small ledge less than a foot high where his tail was sticking out. We cut the slip tips off of the polespears and killian ripped him out from under the ledge. An hour and a half later he was in the boat and we were headed home. I had no clue how much teamwork it takes land a fish like that. We each did 10-15 dives to 50+ feet in attempt to get him out. The video is mostly clips from this trip and a few from a 2 day trip earlier this month where we got around 15 hogs, a cubera, and 3 tigers. Check out my new video in the link below

For a minute there, I thought we had the PETA version. Nice compilation, looks like Neptune took out his taxes on one of them.

Re: New Bahamas video

Great video and good times over at the BMC. Teamwork is CORRECT With two up and one down we were able to crush any big fish that were spotted on a previous dive. Thanks again for the invite. Lets do it again!!

Re: New Bahamas video

Awesome video!

What polespears were you guys using?

Also, did one of the guys put reflective tape on the bottom of his fin for visibility??

Re: New Bahamas video

That was a really slick video!! Perfect timing for getting me pumped too - I leave in the morning for a 4 day West End trip and we're staying at Blue Marlin Cove too. Thanks for sharing!

Re: New Bahamas video

Loved the video... Made me laugh like crazy... shooting that fish behind the shark and then swimming using hands and everything else to get to the surface ASAP..

Those fins look familiar too.

Re: New Bahamas video

Thanks again for the feedback guys
apneaaddict: I used a crist but we had gatkus, crists, kellers, a sea stinger, and a mako used. Check the video description on YouTube for more detail.

Dibsonbottom: I used iMovie to edit the video

Jim: ya I passed those fins down to a friend haha, I lost the back half of that mangrove in the picture towards the end to a group of 3 sharks the same way the day before but I dropped my polespear because they came up at me. I waited for that shark to get a little past the hog and then the shot bought be a couple seconds but you see him turn right after and I just booked it hoping killian was keeping him off me.
