Spearfishing a Sneaky Cracker(11 kg) - Video Clip

In January I got a cool clip of my 1100 Freedivers speargun taking a cracker. I was diving a spot down at Bushy Park and had seen the same musselcracker repeatedly. It would not come close - It was "wild" as spearos put it.

I left other decent fish trying to film myself taking the cracker but did not succeed for a few dives. After a long visit on the bottom I saw the cracker at the edge of the viz and managed to get it to come closer but it was still out of range. I "worked my hunting technique magic" and 50 seconds after reaching the bottom the cracker dropped its left pec fin to steer closer - I could sense its determination to have a good look...
