Now thats a handsome fish. Was that shot deep?.
I see you have your fork out already? Dont you cook them first?!?! ;)
Hey Murat, that's a really small fork! ;)

Kidding, I think I'm going to start looking harder for those in our waters soon, conditions are supposed to start getting better.
Do you also have better diving conditions in the spring and automn on your side?
Alison, i preffer to eat them raw.. like Gollum. By the way i use the fork for scaling. The fish had been shoot 15 meters, stayed at shallow water today coz we also would get smaller fishes for BBQ inthe beach:p

Deep Tought,

Everybody says its better in automn and winter, i am yet to see... Very busy with the school in these periods...

Fuzz, i placed the shoot my usual place, "just" behind the eye:D In fact i extended her eye lid:D (somehow evertime i shoot the grouper i hit them from the eye, really no kidding)
