The Yokozuna Fish/ This fish bossing around his territory for more than two decades. Wow! I think protecting his position for more than two decades is enough to say "Yokozuna". I used my TG-3 with INON wide conversion lens and single INTOVA light.

We can encounter a big Jackfish school sea of Aguni Island in spring. Sometimes several Giant trevallys(GT) are swimming in a big Jackfish school. It is waiting for the timing of GT to eat Jackfish.
