New Spear Fishermen

Hey my name is Mike and I've gone spearfishing about 3 times with my friends. I did all fresh water spearing until a few months back with my friend and caught a Sea Bass in the ocean around 12ft depth. I just finally ordered the following gear: Cressi Apache 75cm gun, Cressi Prostar fins, 3.5" Blue reef knife, Cressi supernova dry snorkel, and I already had an Omer Abyss mask. So now that I am all set up with my gear I was wondering if any Floridians had any good spots to spear at without a boat? I do not own a boat and I'm shipping out to the Air Force in a few months so I figured it'd be nice to enjoy my new favorite hobby for a while before I ship out. So basically if anyone has any good spots besides Palm Beach Inlet for me to spear without a boat I would greatly appreciate it, thank you!

Re: New Spear Fishermen

You've got blowing Rocks in Jupiter, just stay to the North or south where it is unguarded. You can also drive North to Bathtub Beach on Hutchinson Island or even further North to Ft Pierce where there is plenty reef just off the beach

Oh yeah I saw some nice ones too. Seems like they get cleaned out very quickly during mini season though.
