Spearfishing: Blue-Water Big Game

March 31, 2014

Photos by Daymond Gardner

Abbie Eubanks was in trouble and she knew it. More than 180 feet below the surface in the Gulf of Mexico, using a giant oil-rig support leg for camouflage, she had just "stoned" a huge amberjack with her speargun. In a celebratory mood, Eubanks was taking her time heading for the surface when the 130-pound fish came back to life and was hellbent for bottom. Tethered to this runaway freight train, Eubanks reached 220 feet before she even realized what was happening. "I was way too deep," says Eubanks. "I became totally narced out." (Nitrogen narcosis is similar to being intoxicated. The diver becomes numb and can't think straight.) "It was strange. I was totally high and remember having a conversation with myself in the third person. I kept saying, 'Abbie, this is too deep.'"
