    Default Newbie In Tampa area

    Hey all,

    I am Habo. Scuba Diver for 30 years but I have only done 18-20 dives. Just went on my first Spearfishing adventure, a charter on May 9th. I had a lot of fun, was told I did very well, enjoyed it, and even shot a few keepers. I spoke to Sharpshooter a few days who recommended I visit here. Great site, excellent resource. I am a small flats boat owner and understand completely what splitting the trip means, clean up, gas, etc. Thanks for the all Tips Sharpshooter.

    For the other NEWBIES in Tampa area, I just want to give you a brief list of spear friendly businesses and people I have recently met and learned a quite a bit from in just the past few weeks. These people have been very informative and helpful as well as great resources. Sharpshooter = member on Spearfishing planet, Josh and Jerry at Neptonics, Bill H. at Tampa Bay Spearfishing Club, Capt TJ, Tito, and Leon of 2 Shea, Capt TJ of Off the Wall, Jimmy at Tackle Shack, and Pete of Capt. Pete's.

    Good Luck out there everyone,

    There are several events where guys can get together meet face to face.
    If there is interest I will work on organizing an meet and great....
    I, personally feel better about diving with new guys when I have met them in person.
