Default New to P.Cola, Awaiting IFS - Looking for other Spearos

Hey Everyone,

Just moved out here and awaiting IFS/Flight school with the Marine Corps. I'm relatively new to spearfishing and freediving; l'm looking for other spearos that want to free dive and could possibly teach me new skills; eager to learn and get out into the water. Was actually thinking about going out tomorrow.

Hey there I'm in the same boat, should be finishing IFS in the next 2 weeks. I'll probably check out that reef near Fort Pickens tomorrow morning, PM me your number and we'll make something work!

Hey Neil, it wouldn't let me PM you, not sure why.

But whenever you wanna meet up and go spearfishing let me know. I've been out to couple of spots, but lately the weather has been terrible along with the visibility. I've been to the Fort Pickens jetty, I think, and wasn't able to see anything. I've also been out to Park East snorkeling reef and that was pretty cool. I'm looking to get a jet ski sometime this week and we can go out a few miles. Here's my number 315-559-8259. I'm awaiting IFS so I'm pretty much free whenever.

Just an FYI, spearfishing is prohibited at Ft. Pickens. I've heard of people getting tickets for it out there and have definitely seen FWC out there doing patrols. This is all I've been able to find about it but it seems pretty clear: https://www.nps.gov/guis/upload/Divi...Snorkeling.doc
Park East on the other hand is just on the west side of Gulf Islands National Seashore and is legal for spearfishing although they tried to make it an "ordinance" a few years ago. Good luck out there gentlemen and enjoy IFS.

Cheers!

If you are ever in the Destin area, drop by Benthic Spearfishing/Ocean Sports and give your email to John or Mike. John is putting together a Slack (kind of messaging/texting app) for spearos/freedivers who are looking for other spearos/freedivers to dive/hunt with.
The idea is to keep freedive spearos from hunting alone.

Cheers and good hunting
