How to Speared A Giant Trevally

The video is demonstrating what is the best way to shoot the mighty Giant Trevally. The Trevally was a 20 kg but if you took a bad shot , you will risk bending your shaft, The trevally swim deep and get stuck in a rock or reef. Unless you have a chance of getting a good shot on trevally is better to avoid the big boys.

The best way to stonned shot fish is to shot when the fish is slightly turn away from you. this way you have a good clear shot to shoot behind the gill plate to the head.

Epic Day spearfishing Westy Doeland in north Bali

We start the day mid Afternoon, the ocean condition was good but visibility was not its best on some location. First spot was our favorite spot for Spanish mackerel and dogtooth tuna. Due to visibility we couldn't find the outer reef. But not long after the West shot fatty Spanish mackerel. We try second attempt to find the outer reef and fail. So we move to spot with better visibility but didn't find much action.

the last spot just before sun down the fish was very active. We saw shy dogtooth tuna. Shot a green job fish but I lost it during the fight . Then to end the day west shot a golden trevally.

We manage to spot a Spanish mackerel but they weren't interested on our present in their feeding spot. after several attempt o the open water, we decide to hunt in the reef.

We went to our favorite spot to hunt Midnight snapper, Longnose emperor, green job fish and Maori seaperch. I was stalking midnight snapper until I manage to get them in shooting range . All the sudden 25-30 kg size dogtooth tuna swim to school of midnight snapper and spook them . After the doggy spook the snapper he ditch me and leave with nothing to shoot.

Then we try several attempt at the different reef and finally we shot Coronation trout and Redbass for lunch.
