prodigal Son 27kg — Tim Theunissen

Prodigal Son

This fish was shot on a late afternoon dive off the outside edge of Aliwal Shoal, May 2001. I launched at about 4pm, so time was limited. I first misidentified the fish as a small shark, then the tail confirmed otherwise. I had plenty time to dive down, track the fish and place a solid shot in its sholder. On the very next drift, Kevin shot the 16kg Ignobilis, then we sped back to Umkomaas to be in by 6pm. A short but action packed dive.
