Im from Montreal Canada, then I lived in London for the past 6 years. Now I have no address.
1. My first fish, a 12 kg blackjack. It was my first time spearfishing and I was doing dives to learn how to dive with a big gun (with a gun at all actually) and on my way up, I see this big black jack looking at me. I was out of air, but decided to go for it and I stoned it! I was so stocked! It also was about 200g under the WR…that hooked me to spearfishing!
2. A 25kg wahoo in Cape Verde. This was a really hard trip and we have been sleeping about a couple of hours a night and we were having a meal a day. My muscles fell sore and I was half asleep in the water when a massive wahoo came right by me. I couldn’t see anything because I had somehow tuna can oil in my mask so it wouldn’t get clean. I shot at it and the spear didn’t go all the way through. I was sure I was going to lose it, but with patience and slow reeling and a friend to put a second shot in it for me, I landed it.
3. A 60 pounds Amberjack in Tampa. A few people don’t eat them, but i think they make lovely ceviche. I was on a mission to get one for lunch for the boat and was planning on getting a small one but this 60 pounder just showed up so I shot it. I landed it using a bungee clip and with a bull shark on my tail.
4. A 11.5kg Horse-Eye jack in Ascension island. It was a school of fish and I went down to check it out when I saw a loner on the side which was bigger than the others. I didn’t load my gun because I didn’t have time to repair the broken shooting line on mine so I was using a bigger gun. I was pretty disappointed when my friend told me it was WR fish so we came back the following day and I with patience I caught an ever bigger one.
5. A Dentex in Corsica. It was early May and the water was freezing cold. It was a shallow dive and I was having weight issues because I was diving with 7mm for the first time. This dentex came right at me, I was very lucky.
The food without hesitation. I know that most of products we find at the grocery store are creating so much damages to the planet and I fell that when I go home with my catch and eat it, I feel like I’ve earn my meal and that I am being as responsible as possible while doing so. I am a big foodie so nothing beats a fresh catch!
