Re: Spearfishing videos - 01/01/2013 and 12/01/2013

Great stuff. Would be a bit nervous with the birds diving around me. Hope you had a crash hat on :D :y: haha, it was actually weird being in the heat of everything. I had seen a bronze shark(about 2meters) at the same time when I shot the kingfish, i wished i had my second camera on at that time :)

Re: Spearfishing videos - 01/01/2013 and 12/01/2013

I saw some small kingies too. (mainly tiny ones among the large schools of kahawai and travelly), i also spotted a bronze shark but didnt have it on video so maybe i'll have more luck next time. First shark encounter in 7 or 8 years of spearfishing... :)

Mind you , i usually try to r...

Re: Kingfish - Spearfishing off a kayak @ Matheson bay 27/11

Great vid! Reminded me of playing call of duty and other first person shooters. Great soundtrack too. Out of interest, how much does a basic, but functional set up cost? Also, how fit do you need to be? My fitness is not what is used to be! :$ cheers mate. Id say anywhere between 500 to 900 $ (it d...
