Photo shoot and fish with holes...

Postby Spearing Magazine » October 2nd, 2013, 2:02 pm

Headed out last week to do a photo shoot with Koah Spearguns for their new "side sling". Super cool Hawaiian sling design. Basically worked depths inside of 15ft to ensure good light for the pics. Deeper water was crap for vis.

Ended up with some great shots and tasty dinners.

So you are saying you shot those gags at 15 foot with a sling?? What kind of sling is that? I need one!

Sorry for the confusion... Ya 15ft deep.. but not all of them were with the sling. Some were with Josh's 48 roller gun. One I just grabbed by the throat in a hole and drug it out.

Yeah that is what I meant. We do not normally see gags like that at 15' depth. Maybe out in the tortugas but not too much around ft Myers area. Shooting those fish with a sling is a great feat!

We get them up here all the time... actually MUCH larger... Keep in mind we gain about 1ft of depth per mile traveled. Maybe our fish are just lazy lol. 15ft over here is roughly 13 miles due west.

Any time you want to come over and take part in the carnage let me know! And thanks for the compliments... I have a sickness when it comes to NOT leaving anything "stock". My wife hates me!

I saw the ad for that slide sling in your magazine, and it looks really neat. I wish I could have had one like that in my sling days.

I too saw it and for the first time considered looking into one. That would make a great piece of travel kit for taking "1 fish one meal" sized game and much less hassel than a full on spear gun. Do you happen to know the approximate retail on that side handle set up? Ive been meaning to look it up since I saw the add but the mag is in the throne room and I keep forgetting when Im at the computer.

Nice pics on several fronts, thanks for posting it up.

I'll have to admit wondering whether I could take a white sea bass with that sling, but that is ridiculous. I have a hard enough time taking one with a big gun.

But maybe Koah should send one to Dam. JBL is getting a lot of ad mileage out of the fish he shot with the JBL pole spear.

Sorry. Don't know the retail on the sling. I'm sure if you dropped them an email they would let you know.

I shot it this weekend and was really impressed with the range and accuracy.... But I did swap the band for a 9/16 as soon as I got it.

But I'd have to shoot a fish first, and that might be an obstacle.

Bill you have shot more fish than out entire staff have seen, shot at, missed or hit combined... No more excuses. Time to put your amazing wealth of knowledge in print.

Jeromy, it was good to chat with you this last week! Will call you and fill you in. No Lionfish, we concentrated on land hunting, which went well.

Your rig is sweet! Wow! And nice fish... This is what you were telling me about. Hope I make it up there to see it in person one of these days.

Great pics!

Bring it! I'd love to have you over. Our water temp has dropped like a rock with this last cold front. (57deg) The fish are still stacked but I'm not going to lie, its damn cold.

Sorry you guys didn't get into the lion fish but got what you needed.

Remember- June for the keys trip, 21 days of dead fish and beer.

It was made by BayKat boats. 22ft and its a 2006. Powered by a Suzuki 250.

Thank you, we really enjoy it. It may go up for sale next year, thinking of stepping up to a 25ftr.

Figured I'd try and post up a few more shots since the last one.

California transplat William did come over last week and put the shafts to our Hogfish population.

Most of these were al from the end of summer last year. We really didn't dive at all this winter ( yes I am a sissy) due to 52 deg water and grouper being closed.


But these should warm up things a little.

Man I haven't seen that guy in ages, glad he's still spearing!

How does the baykat handle rougher water? It looks to have a low freeboard.

It was a pleasure having Will on the boat. I see many more trips in our future.. (like next week!)

Chris, it does have low freeboard but being 8'6 wide it has no issues with big seas. Its fully self bailing so if it does take one over the bow it quickly drains out the 3" scuppers. Most of the stuff we get over here in the Gulf is more chop/slop from wind and storms (2-4"). It will get up on top and skip over it. In the Atlantic, it handles swell really well but being so light wants to get airborne on larger swells so we have to slow it down to 25mph or so.
