3 Day Spearfishing adventure with Anthony Hierro

myself and Anthony been discussing the trip few month ago and we both agree 3 day trip is best way to experience most of what Bali Underwater world have to offer.

Day 1 we went to North Bali to Hunt at the drop off reef. We manage to see few 5 star reef fish but it was a challenge to shoot them. One of my dive a school of 5-15 kg Giant trevally, I waited to see if there a nice trophy fish in the schoo but didnt see any. We drift with the current and saw big Midnight snapper, Redbass, Mori Seaperch and Bigeye Seabream but the current was not in our favor we couldn't hide on any spot to get them closer. 
The next spot we shot a good size Dogtooth Tuna , midnight snapper and Bluefin Trevally. It was good enough for the first day to have a good dinner. At night we have Dogtooth Caviche and midnight snapper pepes and sate.

The next day we went to Different spot and shot mangrove jack, Anthony miss a good size Spanish mackerel, we also got bluefin trevally and Giant Trevally. We also got Bigeye Sebream toward the end of the dive. We had another feast for Dinner at Anthony hotel, the owner prepare us amazing dinner.

Last day was epic. Never saw so many Spanish mackerel in one day. Firt spot we saw some GT and Spnaish mackerel but they kept their distance. The next spot John Shot Spanish mackerel, it was quiet murky and hard to spot them but john got lucky one spanish went straight toward him from underneath. The next spot we hunt at the reef and Anthony shot a good size flowery cod.  The next spot it was a war zone. I spotted a school of Spanish mackerel all around 10-15 kg size. Took a shot a miss. Not long after john got one and wahoo following after. Then Anthony finally got his first spanish mackerel after losing his first one the day before.

Patrick and Gary James Day trip east Bali

It almost good to see father and son going spearfishing together.  Gary and Patrick was on their holiday in Bali coming from the USA. The day started with a big suprise. We were all wondering why all the bait fish, unicorn fish and the fish around the spot was behaving differently. We all suspect that there is very big Pelagic roaming around but not sure what species. I was around 30-40 meter deep trying to see wheter there any pelagic swiming. That was wise move, i dive and stay around 5-10 meter deep when a black marlin was coming from behind and swim right next to me. I have to fin so hard to catch up with it. Made my shot hoping it will shot him behind the gill but it was a big mistake. It took a lot line but it was bad shot. the shaft didn't penatrate deep enough. I was really sad and worry if the fish will survive the shot. But 2 weeks after we saw the same Marlin and it was strong like a bull keeping its distances this time.

Then we move spot and we got a good size Giant trevally and the spot after that a Spanish Mackerel. When we came back we divide the GT with the local and took the spanish Mackerel for Diner.

Day trip Spearfishing adventure with David Coy and Javier Nino

A good formula for perfect spearfishing adventure is to have solid crew and dive buddy. The day start with a bad news that one of the boy is really sick with fever and we have to send him to the hospital early in the morning. We went ahead with the trip just with David Coy and Javier Nino.

The car ride we had some good conversation about each our experience about life and spearfishing. when we arrive to the spot we were all pump up ready for some underwater shooting. Today is Javier First day, he never done any type of diving. When we all suit up Javier came out only with wetsuit top without the pant on. It was a good way to start have some laugh, relax your mind.

everything pay off Javier shot his first fish a good size unicorn fish, David shot Big trigger fish and John shot a big GT and spanish mackerel. I shoot some reef fish for my sister birthday BBQ

We drive back and we all enjoy our catch on the BBQ with some beer and local alchol called Arak.

South Bali Spearfishing Trip With Alex Drieihann-Holenia

South Bali is not only famous for all the amazing surf spot but it also the location for amazing underwater ecosystem. The terrain is perfect spot for Reef species, full of underwater canyon, cave, chanel and amazing rocks.

We can only access the southern part of Bali when the swell is small or else get ready to get scatches and bruise from the swell surge. All the fish are concentrate just behind the swell break. There is some spot that are quiet deep around 15-20 meter to hunt the famous green Jobfish.

First Spot we found school baitball on the surface and we suspect there is something hunting around it. Our instinct was correct. The first dive Alex shot a queenfish. Then i made the second dive. I was not to prepare to expect Giant , i am talking about massibe Bigeye seabream coming straight for me. As soon i move the Speargun the swim away. Not long after i when up for a breath and Spanish mackerel swim right underneath me, i quickly dive down and got a good shot.

After secure the spanish we couldn't find the bait fish anymore so we move to the next spot. The next spot we were played by the moari seaperch and few other reef fish. We couldn't get a good shot because most of the fish have rock behind it.

Third spot a good size spanish mackerel swim right next to me and i got a good shot. The last spot was the best one. While i was chumming using the guts and inside of all the fish we shot. Alex was in the water waiting for the famous green jobfish but instead 2 spanish mackerel swim for the chum. Alex couldn't get close enough to get a good shot.

We started early in the morning and the condtion was perfect. After few days of rain in Bali it finally stop and we have full sunshine through out the day. First Sport visibilty was perfect for wahoo and spanish Mackerel , we only manage to spot one but it was too shy. Then we spotted a good size Golden Trevally  and got a good holding shot.

The next spot water was blue and Bait fish was all in the surface. As soon as the tide change a good size wahoo sneak from behind and i have take a quick shot because it was turning back and got a nice shot and spool the reel. It manage to drag me 10-15 meter. It was so powerful . Full respect of wahoo. This was only 15 kg i cant imagine a bigger one.

David Giger trip 2 day Trip North Bali

It was our first time to go this part of North Bali. We heard a lot of good story from the past on all the spot we are going to go. There is one spot famous for Marlin and Sailfish. Drop off for Dogtooth Tuna and ofcourse popular spot for the spanish Mackerel to stopby before their journey to the Indian Ocean.

First Day we started at the reef, the spot is famous for spanish mackerel and reef fish. But we didn't see a lot life and not a single of bait fish. We drift and follow the current until we reach a spot full of bait fish on the surface. my First shot was A nice size maori seaperch. Then David shot few nice groupers. Toward the end of the day 12 kg Spanish mackerel swim toward me and i got a good shot.

The next day we went to drop off spots. It is well known for the Dogtooth Tuna and lots of variety of Pelagic. My first shot was 5 kg Midnight Snapper. There was so many of them so i just waited for the biggest out of the group. Then saw a lot maori Seaperch and redbass but they were keeping their distance. Then we drift and i manage to shot 9 kg Dogtooth tuna.

Then we contiune a drift and we found a spot with big school of GT, Blue fin Trevally, Golden trevally and my favorite longnose emperor. I ignore the Trevally but it was my biggest mistake because the schol of longnose was way out of range. I did few more dive but the school went back to the drop off to deep blue sea.
