Know the Local Laws First

If you are planning on doing some spear fishing while on a diving vacation, make sure you understand the local rules before you hit the water with your spear gun.

Different countries and states often have differing rules on when and where you can spear fish, what fish you can go after, and what tools are allowed.

Check spear fishing community web sites. Those that allow anyone to ask questions and hold discussions online are the best. Also, you can call ahead, or ask your host, hotel, or travel agent for details in advance.
