Default Spearfising with Sharks on Tug Heron

Here is a video from Sunday. I shot a descent AJ, and a couple very pesky sharks came in to give me a hard time. Wouldn't give me enough time to unhook my stringer from the wreck and make an escape.....I even dropped my Rife!!!!!!...while unhooking the stringer and was forced to do battle with a VERY SHORT pole spear I had been using to kill lionfish. I won't ruin the ending for you.......enjoy!

I believe one of those sharks would have lost an eye.

Another great video! Man that thing would not give up. Often wondered why divers wouldn't have a screw in blunt tip where you could persuade the sharks from coming back. Do they have tips like that, or are they just not needed? Always wondered.
