Just came across this footage so I thought I would throw it up on youtube. It is from a trip I took to Great Harbour, Bahamas a few months ago with Mike Portuando, Louis Zaydon, and Chris Groves. The footage got shelved because most of the good stuff was on a gopro and that memory card went bad, so we lost everything. But after some urging from Mike, I went ahead and made a quick edit anyway.
The Slings you see are some older protoypes of our Guerrilla Sling. The slings kicked ass on this trip, landing a bunch of great fish, including an Amberjack that was accepted as an IUSA world Record! Can't wait for the final production Guerrilla Sling to be ready.

After we got our limit of lobsters, we decided to go back out and see if we could hand-line a few hogfish while freediving. Figured it would be funny video. None of the larger fish took the bait, but we did manage to catch half a dozen hogfish, and a couple of them were keepers.
I have to admit, even though most of these fish were too small to keep, it was still a lot of fun to interact with them. Maybe next time we will rig up with some heavier tackle and go after some real fish.
