How do you approach the prey when spear fishing?

Try to Spear Fish in Clear Water

The most favorable conditions for spearing fish are in clear water and away from species of sharks that are dangerous. But weather can change and sharks go where they please. Here are some other tips for successful spear fishing:

  • Once the fish is in range of a fully extended spear, take aim and shoot, aiming for the head.
  • To get near a fish that is at a distance, dive deeper without making a disturbance. Then creep or swim near the bottom until you near the fish.
  • After you successfully spear a fish, approach it quickly. Either grab the fish or the end of the spear and head toward the surface.
