Getting Started With Spearfishing

I started spearfishing as a kid, it was a fun way to spend the afternoons after school.

But some of the spearfishing gear I used… I’m amazed it actually held up to everything I put it through. These days, I’ve a much better selection of spearfishing equipment, and my hope is to point you in the right direction so you know what’s what when you’re buying your first speargun, or when you’re upgrading to professional-level spearfishing gear.

In this site you’ll get my thoughts on the ton of spearfishing gear my friends and I have used, along with everything I’ve learned about spearfishing over the last 30 plus years. Because everyone should have the opportunity to catch a fish dinner, so we’re here to give you a helping hand.

But that’s not even the best part. Spearfishing is a sport everyone can enjoy, so buckle up, and learn everything you need to know about spearfishing from the “old salts” who have been in and out of the water for decades.

Inside you’ll find everything from comprehensive buying guides on the best spearguns to instructional articles aimed at improving your spearfishing skills and techniques.

And if you have any questions at all, please reach out to me. I love fan mail, and I’d love to help you with whatever’s on your mind.

Much love.
