I went spearfishing today in the remanets of a typhoon. It was 10 celcius and pouring and windy. The viz was onl 3-5 feet due to an algea bloom. I did get my first fish though. Even with the conditions. A nice little rock sole and i even stoned him with a paralyzer tip.
That is good news, you will remember that one :) it only gets better from here but never quite as exiting as the first but it gets close :) and it gets warmer too ;)
here it is.

Congrats Kellya, the first one is like a pearl in our memories.

Still cold... or did you get a warming bargain at the neoprene factory?
IT was good! The brand of suit that has the factory near me is whites coldwater suits. I have heared they are very very good. And either the waters getting warmer or i am getting tougher cause im warmer now when i swim. To anwser tylers question i shoot him on a beach with spotty sandpatches. He was in an area that was small rocks and sand. Ill add more pics if i get any more.
Nice fish!

I have a friend with a whites drysuit. Doesn't care for it much cause of problems with the neckseal etc. However, I've no experience with the wetsuit...

When does your gun arrive?
Ahhhhhhhh, the first fish. Something you will always remember.
Remember (as Alison said) it only gets better from here!
