View Full Version : Greers Ferry in March 08?
02-04-2008, 07:02 PM
Just wondering if anybody has any tips on spearfishing Greers Ferry in March? I have a few weeks off in March and would like to shoot some flatheads before season closes. I've hunted there during the summer months and shot lots of bass and catfish but never in March. Wondering where to hunt and how deep? What kind of wet suit does it take?

well I have done it a few times in march at greers, you will need a 2 piece 7mm suit and hood and gloves and booties. fish are deep 35-55ft and dont move real fast. hunt trees and brush piles for walleye and stumps and rocks for catfish. best hunting is in late afternoon! pm me when you are going maybe we can meet up, im always up for a good spearfishing trip(I will scuba dive no free diving this time of year for me.

what part of the lake do you have the most success. I usually go around Cherokee and Eden Isle. I try to find flat areas that are just off the original river channel. They seem to always hold a mixture of fish in the summer time, but I would like to go in March. I do not do any freediving( I only scuba, I'm just not that hard core!!) and am looking for a good 7 mil wetsuit. Do you have any suggestions that are reasonable priced because I'll probably just wear it a few months out of the year and the rest of the time I wear a 3 mil?

Greers is cool place to spearfish, and it's closer to cabot. I've got the "neosport" 7mm two piece shorty's and long johns, hood, gloves and boots. I like wearing my 7mm shorty's "long sleeve" year round, because I stay just below the thermocline, thats were the big fish are. I haven't been in winter waters yet, but I plan on it soon, the coldest water I've been in is in the middle of july I had all my gear on and went 63 ft deep, and only 55 degrees at that depth, the only thing exposed was my lips and you want to talk about cold, and I was just getting comfortable after putting the gear on above water "in july" and my friend didn't have enough gear so he got cold within a minute.

I'm going to buy a suit just for coldwater diving on line very soon. Looking at an Akona one piece 7 mil for $115. Don't know much about cold water wetsuits (I have used a two piece 2/3) so if you have any suggestions please share. I just want to get one that will handle 47-55 degrees. Any suggestions please include website to purchase.

check out www.scuba.com or www.leisurepro.com, with the two piece 7mm you actually get 14mm covering, from your chest to your thighs. Thats as warm as you get with neopreme, might be a good idea to get a dry suit, my friend has one, and he loves it.
