Spearfishing is one of the most fun, and coolest, activities that is growing in popularity every day. I started nearly 5 years ago and have tried out close to 20 guns in all sort of environments. When considering a gun, think about the type of fish you will be hunting and the conditions you will be in.
A mid size 36-42 inch gun will do the trick for most nearshore and smaller offshore species. I have popped grouper with my 42 and have have never have a problem. However, for bigger species, and bigger grouper, stepping up into the 60’s+ is a good idea. For jetty and inshore hunts, a pneumatic or 24-36 inch gun can be a fun option. Easy to reload and quick to shoot, these guns are perfect for sheepshead, flounder, etc.
Spearfishing is a great sport and also a fun way to provide dinner. Just be sure to always know your limits and be safe. Let’s take a look at which guns made this years best of the best!
