Default Pole spear in Santa Rosa Sound

Am new to area and live on PB on the sound. Has anyone done any free diving with a pole spear for flounder? Is this legal? Have cleared lionfish while SCUBA with lion tamer and think this could be effective way to selectively hunt flatties. Don't get why so many inshore fishermen hate gigging....at least you can be selective and not worry about foul hooking fish.

I used a pole spear for a couple of years stabbing Flounder. We kept it hidden in the rock jettie in the Pass. It was illegal but this was in the early 80's.

Times two on the weather man. Also those that spend an hour loading and unloading their boat blocking the boat ramp.
