31kg kob (dagga) — John Little


I got this 31kg kob(dagga) on a shore dive at Isipingo. I was diving alone in 22m with top to bottom visibility. While on the bottom a large shoal of 50 or more fish came around me. Shooting at one of the larger fish at point blank range, l was stunned to see my spear skid off the head leaving a white groove. All the fish bolted and l was left thinking how could l have missed such a chance. Diving the same ledge a short while later l was once again approached by the same shoal as l could see the fish with the spear mark. I tried for another smaller fish and this time got lucky.
