Congrats on the beautiful fish. I need to get a WSB setup, and go hunting.

Re: My First WSB Saga

I loved this story. It reminded me so much of my first, it's almost spooky. Mine came from the same place, I had the exact same shot placement and almost the same size fish too. Actually yours is a couple pounds bigger! I was just as crazy stoked about it too.

Fantastic writeup and story! I'm jealous. Hope we get to spear together sometime, as I have the same obsession and am at about the same experience level

Re: My First WSB Saga

Great write-up. I would have taken the shot on the calico. And missed.

Re: My First WSB Saga

Fun read, thanks for taking the time to write it up, and congratulations. I lived in San Diego and started free diving in the mid 80's and have never had a shot at a WSB. They were VERY rare back then and despite years of trips looking for them, nothing. Now, living in Ohio, most of my dive trips aren't back to southern California, but places elsewhere, making WSB sightings all buy extinct. Glad you had a great trip and finally fulfilled your quest.

Re: My First WSB Saga

I laughed when I got to the part about how you had the first one tear off and felt bad for missing what should have been an absolute gift shot... Easily the first half dozen encounters I had, I'd get so excited that I would whiff broadside shots at a wall of tankers from 3' away!
