Question: Could you use a spear gun on blue fin tuna from the cockpit in lieu of throwing a harpoon?
I love JBL's. I have a 42'' JBL Comp. mag. I have had it for over 15 years and it still works great. I up sized the bands and even though it is a mother to cock it is worth it on the bigger fish. I am flying out on Fri. to visit my mom in Fl. and I hope to get out and do some killing. Since Grouper and Red Snapper are out of season down there now I am going to be looking to shoot some Cobia and snatch up some Lobster. I just hope the weather holds out for me. Everytime I go down there and make plans to go out it storms or the seas are nasty. Here are some pic's from the past. The first one is a couple Lobster. The 2 Grey tanks are 100's and the pink one is an 80, to give you an idea of the size of them. The second one is of some Cobia we got on 1 of our dives and the last one is one of a guy I dive with and a #100+ Warsaw Grouper. I can't wait to get out of this snow and get wet.
That would be sweet. I have never dove up here. I have 300+ hours underwater down in Fl. and I have my Master Scuba certification. I would love to go diving up here and check it out. How deep is the norm for around here?Those are some nice bugs ken!! You do any diving up here? Might have to link up this season!!

hey AkaScuba ill go spearing anytime. I have a JBL sawed off magnum and it works great for inshore spearing. I mostly go for tog, flounder, stripped bass and trigger.
You want a gun that is going to have enough power at distance! The smallest gun i would go with would be a 100cm railgun! When you get in the clear bluewater offshore as opposed to the murky inshore the fish are alot further away usually yet appear closer because of the better water clarity! I uhave 3 railguns i take bluewater spearfishing with me a 110cm aimrite carbon with a reel setup,a 120cm with a break-a-way setup,and then 140cm with breakaway setup! i take 3 just incase you do hit something bi its nice to have a backup gun for a second shot! I have killed a yellowfin tuna with a 120cm before at close range and im sure the same could be done with a 100cm but thats the smallest i would go for a mahi gun! I have a bunch of guns here in NJ that you can check out to get a better idea!what would be the best gun for jumping in at pots for mahi and maybe like triggers and bass around the bouys like right off the beach. but more for the pots and mahi? thanks in advance
