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.
