Positioning yourself on the bottom for spearfishing spooky fishes

Here I show a good method of positioning oneself for spearfishing spooky fish - note how I go for cover of reef structure (it make me more secure from sharks too.

The idea is to advertise your presence as you go down and then to disappear to arouse curiosity.

You can tweak it a bit by adding bait as I did but be aware that sharks may be attracted!! I would not do this in an area where I have poor viz and where great white sharks are common - even sand tigers may get very excited by the bait.
