Default Anyone intersted in big game spearfishing lessons?

Hey Gang,

Seems like there are some folks on the forum who are new to spearfishing, and others who would like to take their skills to the next level.

Anyone out there interested in advanced/big game spearfishing lessons? (on SCUBA)

This would be a couple of levels above what you would get in a typical dive shop introductory course. No charge. I'm just looking to pass along my practical skills related to hunting and managing large fish.

Bryan

Great!

No classroom component in this course. We just whack some big ones together. We should go out on the boat you normally dive on and discuss managing large fish and gear on your/the boat. We will discuss techniques on the way out, shoot some fish and debrief after each dive.

Bring your camera! We can also talk about taking pictures of your big beasts.

I will be diving a rebreather. Happy to open it up and give you a tour, if you are interested.

Just send me a PM when you are ready to go out. We can discuss the best places to find big fish given how deep you dive, and how far out you are willing to travel.

Bryan

P.S. I am preparing to hunt some large (200-500 pound) warsaw grouper this summer. If you are curious, we can discuss how this type of hunting is different from all other types of spearfishing. Perthaps this will end up being abother another course in the future.

Default rebreathers

Isnt the use of a rebreather to spearfish illegal?

Pg 11 Florida Fishing regulations.

The use of powerheads, bangsticks, and rebreathers remains prohibited.


I'll take you out on my boat..but I want to use the rebreather!

I think there is no prohibition in federal waters though. I havn't looked it up for sure though.
