    Ive been low on the IM and decided to enjoy my summer this year lol. So I'm looking for a quick part time job to pay for the booze and invested in a harpoon. I am planning on going spearfishing quite often at an attempt to catch a good amount of sellable fish. I heard of people in my country making an easy 300 - 400 euros in a day of spear fishing, so why not I own a boat might as well try it out. Anyone here goes spearfishing if so got any advice for a beginner ?

    Don't smoke weed and spear fish, only bad things can happen.

    Have you actually checked into getting a license or any of that?

    Can I ask, Where do you sell the fish? I used to go out quite often with my old sling, but never really caught all too much. Certainly not enough to live off. One thing I will say, Is at first don't go nuts with it.

    When I first got my spear, I always used to mess up the barbs by shooting fish who were up against rock faces. If you miss, The spear goes bang straight into the rock and either bends the barbs, or dulls the spikes.

    Usually a fish monger can buy the fish here for slightly cheaper than what he gets them from his dealer. Otherwise some restaurants buy them as well. Also thanks for the tip :)
