some don't need to take off their BC to get in there plus, I got weight integrated but no weight in it.

Thanks
Almost always - that thing has 101 uses down there. Close quarters, flounder finishing off big fish, fishing stuck shafts out of deep holes ...

Thanks. I'd never considered doing that. I guess it would also be handy as a lobster tickle stick. Carrying a polespear and a lobster net might be quite similar to carrying a tickle stick and a net I guess, with the added benefit of being able to spear fish with it.

It would obviously be a lot easier to shoot lionfish with, too.

Not much up in there last time except mangroves and a pissed off goliath - As I was crawling up in there he really wanted to get out -He made a beeline towards me a couple times as I was entering and then veered away until i was in and then he hauled ass.

Braining the fish also stops them from struggling and thus delays the Tax man from finding you as quickly, or acting as aggressively. Great videos!

Tony, I am thinking there was sarcasm in your post but I was not sure. I know I am not even on the same planet as you when it comes to spearfishing but you are saying you have stoned every fish you have ever shot? Thatís hard to believe. I am not being a smart ass just curious .

Re: Spearfishing Offshore Jax - Video

A lot but not nearly all,they all go on the stringer in whatever condition they are in.Occasionally they need a second shot but normally only big AJs and cobia and a few big grouper.

Thanx Doc,I will try to pull some snapper video out of some raw footage I have.

Thank goodness I was hoping I didnt suck that bad. I stone maybe 80% or so unless I PH and thought I must be missing something.

Well take into consideration that after I take the one grouper the rest are point blank shots of mainly triggers, sheeps, etc. The non stone shots are usually on the grouper and occasional cobia. If you just count the target fish it would about what your saying.
