Actually yeah here's a video of my near 85cm seabass shot recentlyHi Ianairaised, I fear that when I accidentally deleted the original, quite long thread all of the original posters lost their connections with it. It may take a while to get them back on thread. Posting regular content seems to help - got any spearing stories/pics?
Can you tell us some details about your spear? Actually I called it a Hawaiian-sling but that might be inaccurate, perhaps pole-spear would be a better description? I am thinking of trying a pole spear myself, inspired by your video. What length do you use/recommend? I am also wondering if it might be good alternative to a very short (e.g. 55cm/60cm barrel) speargun for night diving....Hawaiian-sling with a slip-tip? Never seen that set-up used before - and it worked beautifully. What a great fish too ...
Spearfishing is not just about the equipment. In order not to die of any of the freediving related dangers I would strongly suggest to learn how to freedive safely. Taking a course is a good place to start.I've binge-watched spearfishing videos and I find it interesting and a new challenge to try. Where do people get their equipment?
