No spearing in ICW? Boo Hoo, how is my son going to win the Sheepshead competition?

Y'all going to love the Salerno Life.

Re: 2021 National Spearfishing Tournament!

If conditions are reasonably good, I would expect to see a good bit of fish landed in this tournament. I'm am absolutely sure there will be many, many more fish than in at least one prior National Tournament which I have participated in.

I've heard rumor that world class divers are expected to compete. Are either of you guys thinking of participating or competing? We will need experienced observers on the boats, if that is something that interests yous guys?

Re: 2021 National Spearfishing Tournament!

Not sure how I'm going to turn out after covid, only got 92% oxygen level so far. A couple hours of mild exertion wrecks me.
Should be a few nice fish around. I'm just really spoiled.

Re: 2021 National Spearfishing Tournament!

We will make the best of it. I believe it would have been better to have it in June, but I am not running the tournament. Water conditions are typically much better then from what I have heard. We could use some local knowledge help too. Any assistace would be greatly appreciated.

Re: 2021 National Spearfishing Tournament!

I have limited knowledge (local and otherwise), but one of the benefits of this venue is that there is not much natural bottom. A good bit of the diving will probably be over artificial reefs and since these sites are pretty well documented, the home field advantage should be mitigated to some extent.

Yeah, June would've definitely been a better choice & was the month it was originally scheduled for in 2020. But unfortunately by the time I realized this year was a go, June was just not enough time for everything so, had to push it out as far as possible to August.

Sorry to hear of your experience w/Covid and wishing you a complete recovery. Always enjoyed your posts/insights. Hard to believe 30%-40% of the people in this Country think Covid is not real, or at least, not a real problem. Guess that's why we have 20% of the planet's deaths with only 4% of the population.

A cold so deadly you have to take a test to see if you have it.
An unproven experimental gene therapy so great you have to force/pay people to take it.

Baaaa

Re: 2021 National Spearfishing Tournament!

Sorry you the smart kids made fun of you, must have damaged you beyond belief to have lasted this long.
Be happy to get one of my sick friends to give you a case so you can prove out your immune system.
