Hunting This image was taken at Devils' Grotto. I had hoped that a tarpon was coming through the hole in the silversides, but I got this Bar Jack instead. I was happy with it anyway.

Memories Hunter & prey at Devil's Grotto some weeks ago the dive sit and grottoes were severely damaged by a container ship grounded on the reef. Hoping the coral can be saved and the site restored for future visits of the silvery schools of fish!
