#HECS Elite team member @bigisleboy24 had to work for this fish! Read the full story below:⠀
"Patience won... this buffalo took 4 drops before I finally got the shot. It wasn't deep, 20 ft, and he was in a school of random fish. In my four drops the shortest time I spent on the bottom was 2:34 the longest 2:52. My first drop I took for granted and just assumed I was gonna get a shot so I just laid in the open and waited. Of course this smart little guy just out skirted me and just watched me from a distance. Then it was game time, as I don't like being out smarted by a fish. As I breathed up I made sure I swam a little distance away to ensure the fish went back to normal. As I slowly swam back to the area, kicking softly and slowly to not make too much noise. I picked an area between a couple boulders and made my descend once there I put my head down and started counting, 1, 2... 14, 15 and I slowly bring my head up I'm surrounded by fish with no buffalo to in sight. I finally catch the orange tail but he's covered up by all the other fish. Sadly it's time to go back to the surface, but I liked that spot so I swim again to breathe up. I return a few minutes later and sit in the same spot, and same thing 14, 15 and engulfed with randoms and no shot presented. As I ascend I see a shallow depression that could work. After breathing up I hit the bottom where I sat before but just dusted and moved to the depression that was about 10 ft away. Once in the depression I sit and start my count. When I look up the pile of fish is darting in and out of my previous spot as I see this guy's orange tail hanging out on the outside of the ball that is where I sat on my last two dives. But this time from where I'm at I have a clear shot! I slowly rise my Aimrite rage single roller and as he crosses in front I squeeze my trigger... thanks @mic_strong for an awesome pic of a fun challenge down under"
