    Default New to the sport - Western North Carolina

    Hey, everybody.
    Just thought I'd take a minute and say hello.

    I shot my first fish...a mullet...on the gulf coast of Florida a few weeks ago.
    I loved it! We were just horsing around in shallow water, but I separated from the group and went hunting. I was freediving with a short Mares pneumatic gun.
    I was pretty happy to get that mullet! LOL!

    Most of my time in the water is in freshwater due to where I live. I figured I wouldn't get to do much underwater hunting.
    But, I read some regs and discovered there are 12 counties within a few hours drive that allow spearfishing for non-game fish.

    I ordered a JBL 5' polespear and a JBL Paralyzer tip to start off.
    Non-game fish in NC include carp, catfish, suckers, and, believe it or not...tilapia! Further research shows tilapia have been caught in Lake Norman.
    Lake Norman is in a county that allows spearfishing, too.

    Kind of a rambling intro, huh?

    I look forward to reading and learning more about spearing and have really enjoyed the site so far.

    I live in Macon County. It's where NC, GA, and SC all come together.

    Default Also new to the sport... and the state of NC

    I was hoping you could tell me where you found the regulations for spear fishing in NC. I live in Havelock near Cherry Point air station and I would love to skin dive with my hawaiin sling. I've never speared any fish before and I don't want to get myself into trouble with the conservation department. Any advice/direction would be greatly appreciated.
