    Thanks for sharing. Can you please give me a list of the things "Must Have", before I hit open water. Do not mention suit, mask, fins, gun....
    I am talking about orgenizing dives themself. I am new and do not know anything about floats, lines and s.f. So before I go to pickup my gear next weekend, would be nice to know what else I need to buy for open water dives. And how all that is connected. Some pics would be nice too. I am talking about freediving/spearfishing. I read all your posts and it is great, but that presumed some experiens. I have none. Exept ability to sweem in a fins long and fast. Thanks a lot.

    Default How to Brain...

    Well first off just to add to all the equipment you need, besides the essentials you need, and I mean need to carry a small knife doesn't matter how big but as long as it doesn't get in the way of your shot or dive.

    Next you get your fish and hold it firmly,and then you take your knife or sharp object and you slowly apply pressure at the top of the head rite between the eyes. Once in about a centemeter you move the handle side to side as if churning and you keep doing it until theres a last struggle as if the fish is trying to get away and then its dead. Just like that.

    Hey guys this info is priceless, however being a very new newbie to this great sport some of the terms are confusing to me like how would one go about rigging a breakaway? and I'm pretty sure when you say float line you mean a long line attached to a floating bouy. sorry for the questions that seem very obviouse to most but I am one of those who want to know not think I know what I am doing before I get in the water and do something stupid. thanks

But if i had a video that showed what a certain kind of fish looks like and maybe a little narative with the video telling the "distinctive" features of each fish. And most of the pictures you see are of the fish on the surface...not a 50, 70, or 100 feet. they definately look different under water.

    i think between a good instructional video clip and some underwater photos showing what fish are popular in what areas and what depths, that would be the biggest help there could be.
    i had the same problem when i first started shooting also judging size . i went to the end of the internet and back watched every video on youtube, marked my gun with a sharpie so i could size my fish . different color mask lens may help also.
    give a man a fish he will eat for a day... teach a man to fish he will be frustrated for the rest of his life

    Default New to spearfishing

    I am new to spearfishing and also to the planet. I've doing only wreck diving for a few years now and am hoping to learn the art of spearfishing (and put some nice food on the table). This forum topic about reels versus floats was a great start for a newbie like me. Thanks!
