Spearfishing in AR

I spear fresh water, Bass, Crappie, Walleye, Cat Fish and Bream at Lake Quachita in AR from June 15th to March 15th. Arkansas and Alaska are the only two states that permit the taking of game fish. I can take half the fisherman limit in AR and can only spear fish in the inter costal waterways in AK.

Re: Spearfishing in AR

Those are not the only states that allow taking game fish.

Re: Spearfishing in AR

No problem, I'm in Wyoming and every species that is open to hook/line fishing is open to spearfishing

Re: Spearfishing in AR

I looked up Montana's rules and they list non-game fish can be speared including Whitefish, Walleye and other fish I don't recognize but Walleye is a super tasting game fish in AR where I dive.

Re: Spearfishing in AR

Yeah there are a lot of states that allow it. Most just have special regulations on where/when/limits.
