  • Any spearfishers out there.

    I just got my new wetsuit and speargun in the mail. Got a few spots near the mouths of rivers that I think will work for Kings. Anyone else spearfish around here?

    I've had better luck on SCUBA down deep... find the temperature and depth they're schooling at (usually 40-ish feet in Fritz Cove) and shoot away.

    The sealions get very aggressive if you're carrying a stringer though...

      Does closer to the equator count?

      Live on Kauai; been thinking about spearfishing in Alaska. Haven't gone in quite a while here, but typically go lots throughout the summer (minimal north swells). I don't use a gun but rather a 7' graphite Hawaiian sling as we're always poking in/around the reefs. I find a gun is way too much trouble for that (i.e. fish runs in a hole, line gets caught on coral, etc.). With 2 of us, one guy carries a gun and the other a sling (for the follow-up shot if needed). No aggressive seals here but sharks can be an issue.

        I would happily take my luck with the shark over the sealions. Sealions look all cute and $h1t until there is 300lbs of one only a few feet away with their mouth opened wide.

            I know some folks who shoot dungies and octopus here in JNU
            I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

                yeah, and if any of them are ever in my boat's path, I'll likely not alter my course too much... they have a liking for spearing boats too!

                  that'd be one hell of a ride if you could stick a boat
