Cedar key & Steinhatchee spearfishing

Hi folks,

Iím relatively new to the area but not to spearfishing. I consider myself a pretty experienced freediver and spearfisher.

Iím looking to connect w spearos from the area.

We often go on weekends but can also go during mid week.

Most of out spearing is done free-diving and yes.... I have my own boat.

If interested, PM me...

Re: Cedar key & Steinhatchee spearfishing

hey man I live in Crystal River and in the same position, have my own boat and consider myself an experienced freediver but its hard to find people to go with that only freedive. scuba spear fisherman are easy to find in our areas. experienced freedivers seem to be few and far between.

Re: Cedar key & Steinhatchee spearfishing

Hey man! I'm a moderately experienced free diverstudying at UF. Im a super-senior now, postponed graduation for research, but this is my last semester and I'm only partime student so i have more free time. I say moderately experienced only because I've never taken a free-dive course, and therefore only really feel comfortable up to 30ft. I've speared enough (+4 years now) and have read up enough Hells divers oil rig posts to understand safety( load gun in water, one up one down, snorkel out of mouth, don't get tangled in lines w/ big fish....).

now 30ft is more than enough to get a BUNCH of fish in miami/ the keys, but idk about here up north....... well i have gear for cold water diving, so if you ever do get a group going for a weekend dive let me know! ill throw down for gas/food etc.

Grandpa lives down in key west, thats where i started shootin! have plenty of info on good spots down south too haha

Reviving an old thread.

Looking for some freedive spearfishing buddies out of crystal river and surrounding area.

I am an experienced Freediver and spearfisherman. Also Scuba certified, but don’t usually use a tank.

Looking for some like minded people to get out and spear some fish.

Happy hunting.

Re: Cedar key & Steinhatchee spearfishing

Hey Iím moving to Gainesville in June and will be looking for some free dive spearfishing buddies. I am relatively new to spearfishing at this point but have been going a couple times a year, have all my own gear and intend to take an FII course as soon as I get the chance (I have read the manual however to learn t he safety information). Anyhow, Iíll probably repost when I get down there, though I do intend to visit in late March if anyone is planning on going during that timeframe.
