Trust me, there are fish in Gib but not that many. You need to know where to find them.

It has to do with how often i go in the water which is nearly every day. I am letting fish swim past that most ppl would should without thinking as i have the fridge full.

this is probably why the big ones appear. I have not spooked them by shooting at a smaller one in front of it while the big one ion the background speeds off.

Yes gib is in the EU, although the Spanish say we are not :(

With all the betting companies that are here finding a job would be simple.

Take Care

Shane

Thanks for the compliments friends.For 4 months Im on a cardio training and dieting myself.Im 44 years old,180 cm and was 93.3 kg.After this 4month now I'm 73.3 kg.These things help to improve my performance ,I think.Now I can do 2:15 aspettos at 18 mt.,last year only 1:30 at 13 mt.By the help of this difference,and also by the guidance of the forum(also my static PB came to 4:45)this summer I could see and catch more and bigger dentices.
This fish came after a long aspetto at 13 mt. and turn lateral and began to go laterally and examine and look to me very curiously app. 5 mt. away.I just hold the gun and after the shot it was on the spear,not on the dynema.Instantly and very quickly I hold the spear with the fish and noticed that I have dropped my snorkel but find after 10 minutes.

Are Dentex very hard to catch? I remembered my first ever spearfishing boat trip, I was able to land this 20 kg pargo (dentex?) and was told that only professional spearfishermen gets them (what the heck is a professional spearfisherman?) I told the guide an avid spearo that this one must have been sleeping because I wa able to get on top of it at about 80 feet of water and it did not move an inch until I hit it right on top of the head with a JBL explorer (not a very good gun for a fast fish that stays away). The fish went wild after that and after about 5 minutes i was able to put him on my peixe porta on the boogie board. I never seen let alone caught another one for the rest of my stay in the Acores.

The Pargo you are talking about is a Cubera Snapper if i am not mistaken.

Yes they are hard to catch and they are well known for their gear wrecking abilities.

The Dentex is a hard fish to catch too but there are days when they are easier to shoot than others. Still trying to find out why this is.
