what is the longest gun you have? It might be workable. I also may be able to convince a friend to lend me a pretty big gun, but that is not for sure. ARe you experienced in the water at least with freediving and spearfishing reef fish? Do you you know how to drive the boat while other divers are in the water (we drift fish. This will be exclusively wahoo hunting trip, with perhaps a short stop at a deep reef (60ft) to hunt grouper if the wahoo thing isn't working.

There are wahoo out right now though so i expect to find them

Have a 75 cressi with two bands, 125 feet floatline, might work but have never speared in the blue. I usually dive to 30ft, 40 would be pushing it. Yeah I can drive a boat no problem there. I wouldnt want to be a drag being a total newbie in the deep but hey it might work out. Which days are you going out?

thurs and friday. a 75 cm gun is far too short though for wahoo. the diving isn't very difficult since they tend to be at a depth of only 20-40 ft when you see them.
its more the hunting, where you have to have a good breathold to stay at their depth when you see them and angle away from them and stay still until the swim closed to check you or the chum out.

Can't tell you how many new people just charget at them when they see them which is impossible to get them like that.
