|Click to Watch - Barren Island Dogs Spearfishing|
This 👹 Devilfish 🐟 Rodeo to Madagascar was soooo much fun. This is my annual west coast run from the Barren islands 🏝to Castor Banks. This was a serious case of the young bull 🐮… Humoud Al Hajlan vs the old bulls ….Abdulla Al Malki & Yousef Almalki. Lots of bets, banter and tom foolery went down, the only time we were not laughing was when we were holding out breaths.
As always there was a bit of friendly competition… just a bit. This trip there were loads of 30-40kg fish with the odd tank causing through the action. Picking your fish and making the shot count 🎯is easier said than done, even when the damn things are on the surface. Then one morning the the old bull Abdulla strolls out gets in the water with the 1300 double roller amidst the chaos of a Couta and Doggie wrangle and picks off the fish of the trip, a 45kg Doggie. This fish came in on his brother Yousef’s Doggie, which had come in on Humoud’s Spanish Mackerel. Three fish on, sharks and chaos, absolute spearfishing ecstasy.
Young bull Humoud came back with fire putting in a couple great stone 🎯shots. But unfortunately a good size Black Marlin and tank doggie that did not get landed will be on replay every night for the rest of the year.
This spearfishing spoof on Alt-j’s ‘In Cold blood’ video was an in the moment thing that just stuck.
