We made the trip to Seal Rocks for a spearo social diving weekend and had a fantastic time. Seal Rocks is a magnificent location and Camp Treachery at Treachery Beach was made available by the very gracious "Brownie" for all and sundry to enjoy.
The weather gods turned on perfect dive conditions and some nice fish were taken by some divers. Brody and I stuck to the rocks and picked up some nice whiting.
We gave away a set of Penetrator Camo blades. Dave Hunter gave away a Pranga and Ryan form Spear and Fish Downunder donated some great prizes. It was great to meet a fantastic bunch of people that shared a common love for this fantastic sport.
We would like to thank www.spearoz.org for organising the get together and all who turned up and made the weekend so enjoyable. Look forward to next years event.
We here at Penetrator love our spearfishing as well as general sightseeing underwater. But we do get our knickers in a knot when we see people going out to spear without safety in mind. The clan from Penetrator were down at The Spit, Main Beach QLD and saw a group of young guys all keen to go out and spear. Watching them walk up the rock wall getting ready to enter the water we noticed that the three guys only had one float between them and no flag. Now we know there are no hard and fast rules for rec. spearfishing but c'mon people SAFETY FIRST!
There are so many boats, line fishermen etc cruising round in the water that you would be mad not to look out for your safety.
So do yourself a favour, never go spearing without a float or flag each, research the area - make sure your allowed to spear where you are looking at going. Finally always dive with a buddy.
