See the video!
Welcome to the online resource for informaion 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 information.  Check back often for updates and send in your pics if you want to have them posted. 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 these fish are good eating.  There are other fish that can leagally be speared but lack the taste or may cause illness when eaten (i.e. Barracuda).  Hogfish generally average 2-3 lbs. in Florida, however 10-15 lb. Hog's, although rare, can still be found
