Palm Beach Spearfishing

Florida Sportsman member: nutsmagoo Headed out of LWI sunday morning for some spearfishing with our crew. Rough and nasty on the surface but the visibility was great and we had lots of action! We did several drifts between 100′ and 180′ Ended up with 3 nice cobias and a mahi.

Cold Water Wetsuit Advice

A bit of advice on buying a wetsuit in Florida. As we get in to our colder seasons here in Florida, wearing a wetsuit while diving is necessary as water temperatures drop about 10 to 15 degrees. There are many different factors that go into buying a wetsuit including the style of suit, the thickness, and color.

How to Choose a New Speargun

FS member Mackokid asked for advice on which speargun to buy to freedive for cobia and to shoot snapper and grouper. But what is his best choice? KOAH? a Mako? a Riffe? There are lots of spearguns on the market, lots of opinions about them, too, but there’s some good advice on Mackokid’s thread.
