I have just gotten back from a crazy spearfishing adventure in northern Madagascar. We went to Intermediate and the famous Castor Banks, where we found some all time dog tooth tuna action.
As per usual the dogtooth proved harder to land than to shoot. We slowed things down and the guys got more careful of their shots and Ahmidy was rewarded with a fantastic stone shot on a 37kg Dog tooth.
The dog tooth were coming to the surface in some places, it was that wild. You could see absolute giant fish cruizing below 20m. Check this video out - Spearfishing Dogtooth Tuna Madagascar

Madagascar is well known for its incredible numbers of doggies, and not so much for their size. I have seen number of fish between 60-80kg on this last trip. And my skipper who has been spearing and fishing the area for 15 years is adamant that we will spear one of a 100kg very soon. As fisherman have gotten them at that size.
Anyway time will tell and I have a number of trips there in the next few months, lets hope my skipper is right!
