Trigger fish
« on: June 13, 2012, 08:58:05 AM »
Finally able to get down for some saltwater action this past wkend.
We caught several stripers up to about 33" but no pics as it was all middle of the night and only had iphones.
We were able to snorkel for about 1/2 an hour and try shooting one (never shot a stiper yet).  Saw tons of Tautog, which out of sesaon, but no stipers.  Then working my way back to the boat, trying to go get as deep as I could, a trigger fish got a little too curious to see what was above him.  He turned to get a better look, and that put him in the pancake position, as his eye is on the side of his head.  Big mistake.  Broadside at 5 feet.

Ya know, you can add extra range if you use your crossbow. :laf:  Good shooting there Dave!

Nice fish, but I have to agree with HuntnCarve.  Your crossbow will give you much more range than a rubber band model.
