Underwater Castle of Perch

Today I went to hunt some fish with my speargun, for the very first time in this summer. Yay! I dived into an old underwater castle of perch, a place where fallen trees has made a complex maze beneath the surface. Perch like to hide in those kinds of places, but one should be very alert while diving under sunken trees. It is easy to tangle into the underwater branches, in murky water one can lost even in a small maze  (a real problem for free divers!), and while shooting, the spear and line might also tangle in the trees.

I managed to catch a couple of nice perch, but I also dived for photographing. I used my Canon D30 I bought from Japan, although, I don’t have a holder for the speargun yet. Today the water was really murky, but I was still able to get a few good photos. At home I cooked my fresh catch. I just added some sea salt, lemon and white pepper, then I fried the fish in a hot pan with oil. Before the fish were ready, I added sweet chili sauce and boiled the whole thing down until the fish got nice brown color. Like the name implies, the sauce is really sweet, and it gives nice caramelized flavor for the fish.

Here is a video and photos taken today, enjoy!


The castle.
