Re: Alaska Spearing trip

What were the results from these outings? I'd say spearing is year round depending on how your cold tolerance is. Glaciers stop melting in the fall and once rain turns to snow the visibility is best.

I asked freedivehunt131 how his trip to Alaska went. I don't think that he speared any fish & he said that he didn't like diving in the cold water. lol He did say that he had fun hunting though...

Re: Alaska Spearing trip

Ya it's not all sunshine and flowers up here. I think if your willing to battle the weather and tides it could be a huge payoff. Much of the diving in homer can be done from shore, although you would either want a guide who knows the area and or a boat for safety. Cook inlet and kachemak bay have some huge tides. It's basically a river at any time except a brief period during slacks. I'll be getting more tries at it this summer. There's potential to do really good in less than 40 ft. Forget about lings and rf, this is halibut country!
