|EAST BALI VIEW|
We started early morning following the tides and went into few diffrent spots to have a high chance of shooting few fish,
that morning everything was going crazy and the jumped into the water and saw the fish jumping ontop of the surface and it was alot of excitment that day, the currents where not easy but we ended up with a beautiful catch for the end of the day we have been stalking fish and swimming alot for it.

|Amazing GT patroling around us|
The beauty of spearfishing is that it can always be a big suprise and you never know what happens during the next dive, suddenly everything can change.
We went out during the afteroon and decided to come back abit later so we can see the sunset from the boat.
On the last spot we checked I dived down abit deeper and decided to have alook on the ledge and encoutnered a school of dogtooth tuna which i took the chance to shoot.
|Dogtooth and Small GT|
Later that day when we returned to the hotel we had the amazing experince to try the dogtooth sashimi , prepared for liliana and blaise that evening and everyone loved it because it was so fresh ,
we kept the fish on ice in our good kill bag that keep the fish fresh and good during the hot weather here in bali since we want to enjoy the catch to the fullest!!!
The days passed quickly and we had alot of fun.. spearfishing in the North and East and enjoying some of the freshess fish caught by ourselves.
