Spearfishing about 6 miles west of Caulda Channel in the Gulf of Mexico off Key West. Water was rough for 2 days due to high winds for weeks and 6 ft. waves which made the waters murky. We were spearing Hogfish when we were surrounded multiple times by bait balls. WOW! Since this area is known for sharks taking your kills, we needed to immediately bring them back to the boat vs keeping them on a stringer. The race was on! Unfortunately, that day we forgot to strap the cooler to the port side swim platform so that we would not have to struggle to get the fish into the boat each time. Oy! Enjoy!
