Welcome to the first World Freshwater Spearfishing Championship, WFSC.

These events will occurs worldwide on every odd year and are not affiliated with CMAS.

Our first event is MAY 18 & 19, 2017 in Lake Mead, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

This is a 2 Day diving event in the beautiful warm waters of the Nevada desert. Water temperature 70-75 degrees F. Visibility will range from 1-10 meters.

Day #1 will be unlimited Striped Bass only. This a very difficult game fish to find and shoot. It will make for a very challenging day of diving. Unlimited size and take. Fish will be awarded 3 points per fish with no points for weight.

**There is a limit of 20 striper over 20″, but most all your fish will be under 20″. Unlimited fish under 20″

Day #2 will be unlimited Carp only. This is the common carp and they are very abundant in this lake. These are rather easy fish to shoot, but top competitors will need to shoot over 100 fish to be competitive. The sheer weight and number of fish you will need to shoot and handle makes for a very different hunt and challenge from the first day. Unlimited size and take. Fish will be given 1 point per fish and no points for weight. Ties are broken by the weight of your largest fish.

Both these fish species the Department of Wildlife would like removed from the lake, to better gain control of this lake. All fish will need to be iced down as they will be used for a food source.

Your largest fish from each day will be weighed for the big fish awards and as a tie breaker.

Teams: Each country will be allowed 2 teams in 4 different divisions. Master’s, Men’s, Women’s and Mixed Doubles. 2 divers per team.

Masters division are age 60 and over as of meet day.

Teams must dive together (in boat based meets) Divers that come individually must dive on a boat with another individual or team.

Mixed Doubles can consist of a man and woman, or man and Junior <18.

All teams need to qualify in their country and have permission to representative their country. Where agencies do not exist for this permission, resumes may be sent in to qualify with the WFSC committee.

Re: Compete in the the first World Freshwater Spearfishing Championship May 18-19, 20

Thanks for this listing
As of today 4-10-17
There are opening for 2 Master teams of 2.
You must be 60+ to dive as a Master
There are 3 openings for womens teams, 2 per team
And there are 4 openings for Juniors <18 and they will have to dive with a Master or woman or individually on a boat with another team.
You normally have to qualify to represent the USA in a world meet by hunting in the 2 Freshwater Nationals, the 2 years before. However, as this is the first Freshwater Worlds and we have limited Masters, Women, and Juniors competitive divers...
We have opening for a few top divers.
All the men's spots are filled with our Nations best.
If you are interest in diving this event and you meet the above requirements, then read over the rules and logistics and get in touch with me.
If your interested in help, playing captain, have a boat in the area... also contact me.

We are 5 weeks out and will need to get started here soon.
