So I asked my buddy Jay to do a post on Louisiana spearfishing and he’s been kinda lazy about it, so I just took some of his photos and I’m gonna make up my own post.
Dudes, let’s get the boat ready! A one hour boat ride from Venice into Breton Sound will give you clear 20′ water with a sandy bottom in ideal conditions. Everyone knows catching your own food rules.
The fish you may spear include Redfish, Snapper, Grouper, Lemonfish(Cobia), Tarpon, and SHARKS!
Pull up next to an oil rig, tie the boat off, and hop in the drink. The dive flag lets other boaters know that you’ve got people in the water. Check out this redfish!
Not gonna catch anything standing on the rig. Wait a second, what is that a sheepshead?
That’s it buddy. Jump in. There aren’t any sharks nearby… that you can see.
Personally, I love diving AND fishing, but I have never combined the two. I have been diving in Louisiana though. Water looks exhilarating.
If you play your cards right, you may end up with a chest full of reds and snapper…
OR you may cross paths with a shark and have a bloodbath on your hands…
Either way, these fish just got a cap in they ass.
Pass me a cold one.
