Get yourself a small speargun for the small fish and watch out for all the crack heads.

Here is a link to the regs. http://www.state.hi.us/dlnr/dar/fish_regs/index.htm.
I will ditto elements comment in that HSD is where most of the hawaii divers post. If you have any specific questions feel free to shoot me pm. I will be home over the summer if you wish to do a dive.

Get yourself a small speargun for the small fish and watch out for all the crack heads. No, Oahu is known for its meth addiction. But those guys are lucky if they can find their own feet.

By the way calihunter, I'm on oahu and i would recommend heading to the nearest Hana Pa'a. (http://www.hanapaahawaii.net/). The guys there are always helpful when looking for good spots. I can tell you right now that Mokuleia is a real popular spot for entering from shore. I know Rabbit Island is pretty good but, you'll need either a boat or kayak to reach it. Its not really worth the swim just to get there and have to swim back. Also the currents can be rough once you get out over the dead ground. There are other spots on the North Shore that have names but you probably wouldn't recognize them. IE: Alligator Rock. I'm always looking to go spearfishing the reefs but I'm definitely a novice so if you are looking for some heavy hitters I would recommend looking for a tourny to enter. The Gene Higa is coming up at the end of May. Its mentioned on the Hana Pa'a page. I'm entering to expand my dive buddy list as well. PM me if you are interested in hooking up for a dive.

calidiver dont worry about lobster season. odds are you wont find one on oahu. Hanapaa is pretty good but they are more expensive than other fishing/diving stores. but if its advice you're looking for then Hanapaa or Maui sporting goods(on Kapahulu St. in Waikiki) is good. The Super Ferry is gonna be up and running in a few months so you can dive other islands with out renting a car or worrying about gear being lost.
