Can anybody tell me where to find the laws in Alabama? I always thought you had to 100 yds. off beach and shoot certain fish but the only ducument i can find dosent say anything really. I asked the guy at the dive shop and he said that the 100 yd. thing was a florida law and dont apply here. So i went spearing around the perdido pass all day without anyone saying anything. So could some one shed some light so i know for sure? Thanks...shane
by the way....i did see tons of spades and sheeps but didnt shoot any, I shot some fish on a new spot though that ill post in another thread.

Shane,

To my knowledge the only regs that apply to spearfishing in saltwater are the same as fishing on sizes and such, and the need to carry a dive flag. We have dove the pass and beach for 20 years w/ no problems.

good luck

Brian
