I think this might be the guy featured in the book "on the run" but not sure. I haven't read it in a while. You should read the stories in the book. I'll stick with my boat.

bad shots.. ;)

i can see how someone could get trigger happy. it's a rush...especially when they start pulling you around..

we stop after one fish per person, just too much meat.

If you're going to eat them (and why would you spear fish if you weren't?), why target those cows? The better eating fish are way smaller. Like hunting, there's no catch and release with a speargun (and I don't count a miss as a "release")...

That is something I have wanted to give a try for quite a few years. I know a few guys who do it around some of the jetties in OC and at the Russ Chattin Bridge and they get some pretty impressive catches. They also get some monster fluke. Major Thumbs Up To This Guy!!!

Hey- I say if you got the nads to free-dive with all those sharks and stripers big enough to eat ya, then have at it! It's got to be a challenge to get within range and shoot one of these beasts.

I don't see what alot of you guys are bit**ing about. If this guy would have been chumming clams and caught this fish, you'd be slapping him on the back. I'd like to see those who complain jump into a rough current, dive 50' without a tank, spear and retrieve a fish like this. Hell, most people wouldn't even be able to find a fish like this with sonar!

I say WAY TO GO!!!

I am NOT against free diving or spearing fish. I am against the taking of the breeders to the extent that is being depicted. Just because someone can does NOT mean they should. Personally I rather have seen them killed 20 average size fish opposed to taking one breeder.

Awesome Fish Way to Go!!! Been fishing for Stripers for 20 years havent broke 50lbs yet. Guys got brass ones free diving and spearing a 60 lb fish. Seems like not everyone thinks so. Some guys are to hung up on catch and release. If I'm a hunter I'm going for the big buck not the yearling.
