Welcome to the online resource for information on spearfishing in south Florida. This site gives you an idea of what spearfishing in Florida is like and features pictures, downloadable underwater video, dive spots and general spearfishing information. Check back often for updates and send in your pics if you want to have them posted. Spearfishflorida strongly respects the environment and suggests fellow spearfishermen/women always follow current regulations and bag/size limits. Abuse of the ocean will eventually lead to no spearfishing in Florida!
The big game to hunt in Florida are the Hogfish (commonly referred to as the Hogsnapper), Grouper, Snapper (Gray, Mutton, Lane, Red), Jack, Amberjack, and sometimes Cobia. All of these fish are good eating. They can be taken by spearguns, Hawaiian slings, or pole spears. There are other fish that can legally be speared but lack the taste or may cause illness when eaten (i.e. Barracuda). Hogfish generally average 2-3 lbs. in Florida, however 10-15lb. hog's, although rare, can still be found (17lb. Hogfish in pic to left).while spearfishing.
