Hate Mail of the Week: Vikings Conquer

As long as you get your kill, you walk over bodies to get it…” Thank you for the email Viking and I sincerely hope that we can come to an...

Video: Huge Shark Eats Shark and almost sinks Redneck Boat

  (When I first was sent this video by my buddy in Key West it only had 360 hits, within ten days of it being posted on Spearblog.com it had gone viral and had more than half a million!    This video will never get old.  I still watch it every few days for a good laugh )  This is one of the funniest and most spectacular videos I’ve seen in a while. The fact that we were diving here all last week before I came to New Zealand reminds me...

Spearfishing World Records: Who’s record is it?

I am proud to have been accepted for a number of records and it is always a good feeling to see your name on that page. I hope that after reading these posts and learning better how to submit...

I learned about diving from that…

I learned about diving from that…

I don’t want to leave you hanging about Roy but his family and friends have asked that I take down the post regarding his disappearance. The last thing I want to do is offend anyone and I know how hard it is to deal with the loss of loved ones and dive partners. When you start diving you usually don’t even know what Shallow Water Blackout is or maybe have a vague idea.  As years pass and you get more into the sport, you learn...

People who dive: Mark Healey, Surfer

Mark Healey, under duress,  a few mexican beers and a multitude of Tequilas that we have sampled in the past 24 hours, self admitedly works to support his spearfishing habit.    At first it would seem that the surfers life is a charmed one but consider this: Commited.

Dolphin/Mahi Mahi Possible World Record?

Dolphin/Mahi Mahi Possible World Record?

Just got an email from a buddy with this picture in it and wanted to share it with you all. From the looks of it this is one of the biggest Mahi Mahi Dorado, Dolphin fish I’ve seen and makes me look forward to the coming Season for them at home.  Big ones like this are still surpisingly young fish as Dolphin can grow as much as 20+ lbs in one year.  One this size is still probably less than ten years old.  I have seen a few other...

Hate mail of the week:

Each week I get some excellent emails from tree-hugging, vespa driving, soy drinking vegans that somehow find me on the internet and go off.  Honestly it is about my favorite part of the week to listen to their uninformed rants and I think you all will enjoy it as well. Here the latest from D.S. who I hope means well but needs to spend more time not trying to save the dolphins in captivity and instead get out there and actually experience...
