Because of the weak vis we headed in a bit shallower, 25-35 feet of water and hit some big rock piles. When Luis and I first hit the water and cleared the first rock, I saw two cobia laying on the sand and yelled to him. I got over top of one of them and waited for him to get over the other before I took my shot. Right before we dove down a big nurse shark swam through and spooked both of them. Luis hit his mid water and took off in one direction. I hit mine with a gut shot and it took off in the other. After a few feet it tore off but the fish kept swimming along the rocks so I followed it, reloaded and shot it again. This time it took off in the other direction pulling me with it. Andy had dropped some flashers in and my float line quickly found them and tangled in them. While I was cruising along , there were nurse sharks all over. Then I started seeing other types of sharks mid water column, first a couple big reef sharks and then a bull shark, then a bigger bull shark, all swirling around me. I then realized that the sharks were going after the flashers, and tried to untangle them. I called for the boat but they were tied up with the other cobia. I got the flashers untangled and the sharks backed away.
The rocks we were diving were covered with fish. In addition to the sharks and cobia, there where big schools of barracuda, some of the fish weighting 30-40 pounds, groups of big permit, and big schools of jack crevelles. Even a big jewfish came out to see what the commotion was about, and nurse sharks everywhere. In some spots there would be 3 or 4 nurse sharks just laying around next to each other almost in a pile. After the action cooled down, we all realized that we were cold and headed in.
