Some more interesting Stuff

Selective Shooting
One thing we as spearos need to stress and implement is the one benefit of spearfishing is that we are selective to the fish that we want to take. To go even further, while hunting big fish we should be selective on when to pull the trigger to prevent the needless dying of fish.

A different way to be stealthy
I have heard that diving with a reel gun is more stealthier in that there isn’t a line “buzzing” in the current alerting all the fish.

Target Practise
Spearos are lazy and as the spear is attached to the gun we are quite content to plant a spear in the middle of the fish knowing we’ll land it. Often then, a lot of good quality fillet is damaged and thus, we have to“forced” ourself to take lethal shots as one would in hunting buck. Sure we will miss a few but this will honed our technique. By taking “lethal” shots, the fish are landed quicker with fewer disturbances and generally you can’t even see where the spear went in. This is also borne out of necessity as diving a place where sharks are, if a big fish fights, sharks quickly come a begging.

Please comment on this as more info will help!!
