Persistence is a must when tracking, and spearing this formidable aquatic creature. For they are some of the smartest fish that seem to know just how far your spear will reach. As you dive down they will nearly always be far off around the next bend, the next crevasse, the next coralhead. Diving straight down on this fish is one tactic to attain this beautifully formed, crab devouring fish.
