So we have had two tournaments in two weeks here in SWFLA. One being the inagural Naples Spearfishing League Tournament. Lots of involvement which is great now that the spearing ban has been lifted in Naples..Pictures and results can be seen at www.facebook.com/naplesspearfishingleague
Now this past weekends tournament, the SWFL Open has some epic results. Seas were Less than one foot all day up to at least 70 miles offshore. I hauled in my personal best 90lb black and a 20lb scamp. Unfortunately for me, the black was BESTED by a 100lb black..go figure!! Either way, the spearfishing community down here is thriving and we are hauling in epic fish.
First drop of the day we ended up with a 30lb cubera, 40lb black, the scamp and saw some stud american reds.
This video i filmed going out to into the blue. Conditions improved later in the day!! https://www.facebook.com/video/embed…36904733056352
What a close tournament. We had 41 shooters and some really great prizes. First place took home over $1k and we raffled off another $1000 for a members only raffle.

Great night last night for the Naples diving community! Fantastic presentation infront of a great crowd at the perfect location.
Thanks to all who made this happen and all who came and brought their own knowledge and insight. We can all make a difference in the lionfish population.
BIG Cubera Snapper seem to be around this time of year. Many local reports of people shooting big cuberas. Nice Fish! “>
