Hi all, Tried my hand at spearfishing recently off the yorkshire coast, not expecting much I scooted around for a bit on the surface, having a few dives on the reef wall. Managed to spear a 6 lb Seabass which I was stoked about! Maybe expected a flatty but not a tasty Bass! Anywho, I'm not the most experienced diver and was wondering does anybody else spearfish off this coast? If so anybody got any tips, spots (if you don't mind sharing secrets) or company as two is definitely safer than two. Any response would be awesome.
Thanks

i occasionally spearfish off the the south devon coast, so can't help with your query, but very well done on your catch. you can enjoy your meal knowing that the fish was caught by the most selective means possible.

I am SO glad to read this post. When I first started diving, in the mid 14th century, the diving press was full of spearfishing competitions. It's something I intend doing a lot more of, even though I couldn't hit the side of a barn with a shotgun.

Well shot Sir!

I am an occasional spearo off the Yorkshire coast. Generally Flamborough (North Landing, or if I fancy a bit of a walk, the bay by the lighthouse). Loads of rocks so plenty of hidey holes, and not *that* deep either - usually around max 10m or 15m if you're brave enough to swim far enough off-shore. Sadly not that clear at the moment as it's been a bit choppy, although I did get a rather nice large spider crab the other week.

As for shooting the spear gun - I'm armed but useless. My aim is bloody awful, but I suppose it's practice :)
