What is spearfishing?

Spearfishing is a type fishing that’s been here since ancient times, and has been used by hunters and anglers for many centuries. Early civilizations fished with sharpened sticks, whereas today elastic-powered spearguns and slings, or compressed gas pneumatic-powered spearguns, are used to catch that perfect fish.

Why spearfish?

Simply put, spearfishing should be the choice method of catching fish, as the angler is able to size up the fish before it is shot. That’s why spearfishing essentially has no by-catch, which is the non-targeted fish that are caught as a result of other fishing methods.
