BTW, for those of you that don't know, black groupers are very skittish and nearly always, 99.9% of the time, take off at the first sign of divers. They are very hard to catch spear fishing. I just happened to get extremely lucky that time with a curious black. And I was buddying up with someone who had nearly as much as experience as Craig, while next to them I was a rank amateur.

Though I was the only one that has EVER caught a lobster free swimming away from a diver (same guy I was buddying with) with 1 hand. I beat both of them on that. Just stuck my hand down and the lobster scooted right into it (they go backward when confronted).
