Went out with my brothers today and decided to do two separate dives at the same location. We were blessed with 35 foot viz, the first dive we caught some nice rockcod and perch for our crab pots tomorrow and I saw a big ling and when I pulled the trigger... I missed  :smt013 went it extremely frustrated. We lost the tip to my brothers gun so we went and bought another one and I got a new firing line for my pathos because the other line wouldn't fit in the really small hole. Anyways the second dive we went out into about 30 feet and didn't see much, again we got a good amount of crab bait and then I looked into a whole and there she was... the head of a big lingcod. I knew if I missed it I would never forgive myself so I took my time and blasted it in the head and if measured 29 inches!!! I screamed so loud when I got it someone thought we were in trouble and called the fire department and there were about 5 cop cars and 3 fire trucks that came up to where we were diving and asked if everything was okay. And then they drove away. Ended up being the best dive I have had in a while and a great way to end the year!
