Re: Small Boats with Dive Platform?

Yeah Mike, Steve really has nailed right in this one as far as small boat for spearfishing, you can dive anywhere in the world with it. My Yamaha 40hp has C-Ski 444 written all over it....

Re: Updates From Pistoleros!

Great fish in a great trip. I dove San Evaristo late January 2012, but it was dead. Bummer because I've always heard it was good. Thanks for confirming it...

Re: Changing enclosed track internal diameter

I'll try Behslayer's scraper, it's the only solution. But just enough to fit the 9/32 shaft, not wider than that. You're right, Impaler, how lame can this be? A gun like this would never be sold in...

Re: Changing enclosed track internal diameter

Jason, the gun isn't new as guns go. I got it as a gift in June 2010. Few months later, when I've asked the maker how to fit the 9/32 shafts, he told me to wrap a sandpaper around the shaft and work...

Re: Changing enclosed track internal diameter

The gun is a Midhandle 120 made in SE Asia. Curiously, mine has a 3-band slot and original [precisely] 7 mm shaft with Riffe mini Icepick.

When I wanted to change to a 9/32 shaft, it wouldn't fit...

Changing enclosed track internal diameter

This may sound dumb to gun building experts, but I've a gun with an enclosed track for 7 mm shaft. Even the 9/32 shaft wouldn't fit in it. But I want to change the track to be able to use 19/64...

Re: New cobia WR shot in Brazil

Don't be sorry. So either I am dishonest or an idiot, or both, unaware of a scale being off or to evaluate a fish size in my 39 years of spearfishing. This is BS. I'm off this forum, LADVR is right.

Re: Getting Conditioned to Freedive

New cobia WR shot in Brazil

This huge ~142 lb. (64.5 kg) cobia was shot last Saturday off Espírito Santo state, southeastern Brazil. No details as of yet, so we cannot tell if the spearfisher followed the WR protocol....

Re: How do you deal with sharks attacking a speared capture?

Welcome to the club.

Good luck trying to immediately grab a freshly speared doggie if not stoned dead, regardless of size.

As for the grey suits, once they lock onto the prey, let them have...

Re: Teen dies while free diving in Gulf of Mexico

That's jornalese for "something happened down there and we don't have a clue of what it was". My feelings to the family and close ones.

Re: Makos, Barracudas, AJ's and Tarpon!!!

Fishermen lore from Southern Brazil goes that ten pounders are the mother-in-law's fish. And that tarpon is an overgrown ten pounder, therefore good only for mothers-in-law dinner parties :D

Re: Thank God I did not pay for this thing!

2 more cents to the lot, if I may:

1) The loading pads on both Mako gun models aren't particularly well designed because they were adaptations, not originals. As it's public knowledge, both...

Re: Worlds strongest spearfishing line now available state side

Shaun,

I've been using 1.8mm spearfishing application Dyneema in my reels for few years. I tried it as shooting line but went back to mono because it's a bitch to tangle in the water although...
