Google slurp gun. Don't know if any local shops have them. Hopefully if they do, someone will chime in. The dive shop "Deep Six" in Vero Beach has them and they have a website you can get them at.

If I may offer an opinion. I used to have a slurp gun back when I had a saltwater aqaurium. However, I found that by using aLarge CLEAR plasticbag (1/2 the size of a big garbage bag) and a little cat food stored ina squeeze bottle (I used anold suntanoil bottle that had been cleaned out). I caught a lot more tropical fish than with the slurp gun.While snorkeling or diving I would open up the bagunderwater squeeze out my bait near the opening of the bag andthe fish I wasafter wouldmost often swin right into the bag.

I recommendthe low tech approach before I would purchase a slurp gun.

I have to agree with this method, it does way less damage and shocks the fish less. If caught at any depth at all remember to bring them up extremely slow so as to not bend them.

Two good pieces of advice. I've always used the biggest ziplocks (I only caught very small fish for my 30 gallon tank) I could find that have a ZIPPER to close them because they are much easier to close underwater. And don't forget you need to have a fishing license, and make sure you know the rules too. A buddy of mine got an expensive lesson a while back. Good luck!

I once taked to a guy who did a lot of live specimen collecting. He said that stopping at the half way mark is as critical as coming up slowly.
