Let me tell you a story… “It’s about a man hunting a fish.” The story of an incredible adventure spearfishing Playa Del Carmen this Sunday. The catch of a Big Mutton Snapper.
Sunday is such a peaceful day, it is great to be on the water spearfishing Playa del Carmen. We did a great spearfishing trip with Diego, John, Sharon, Frankie and myself. Frankie got a Barracuda on board with some help from Diego (gracias) and decided to enjoy the boat with the Mrs and a well deserved refreshment (only when you decide not to go back in the water, for obvious safety reasons!). Satisfied and happy guest. VIEW THE FULL STORY

The water is clear, the sun is out and a good day of spearfishing in Cancun is ahead of us. We start this intermediate trip underwater hunting with a 10-15m area of reef to dive in and Diego brings up a nice 6kg mutton snapper. He was only in the water 5 seconds. I think he can talk to the fish or something.
A few Mackerel and Horse Eye Jack appear but soon vanish into the blue. Diego also lost the fight with big Barracuda too. Lots of fish, good spearos, a good spearfishing guide and a good boat. We have all we need for a day spearfishing Cancun.
We decide to change our location in Cancun. We head to our first shipwreck at around 20m where I watch Diego and Pablo dive down and I see a permit move across me, the bystander is called into action!! VIEW THE FULL STORY

Comments Off on World Record Snapper with Polespear
I can not deny that each spearo dreams about shooting a World Record Snapper. Bigger than you ever shot before and bigger than your friends have ever shot. As spearfishing becomes more and more popular, “shooting a world record” is a pretty hot topic. It is doable for more people than it ever was before, even with a polespear (http://www.iusarecords.com/RecordsWorld).
Summer 2014, I am using the Leo Pro Polespear for a while now and the latest version simply rocks. After making the change from speargun to Polespear it felt like going back to the old days. Being upset at yourself that you were not able to get close enough to the fish. Wishing you had your Speargun with you. I made shots that were terrible and I hurt a fish and was not able to get it on the boat. Spearos laughed at me. VIEW THE FULL STORY

Comments Off on Spearfishing Cancun Cubera Snapper
Spearfishing for big Snapper is an amazing adventure. You have to have discipline. Lots of discipline. Today we went out in the Cancun area here in Mexico with a guest that specifically asked for Cubera Snapper of more than 20 kilos. We don’t deliver on demand, the best we can do is to take someone to the spots of which we know have the biggest chances to shoot that specific fish.
Our client flew 13 hours with his gear to hunt for his trophy. He booked two trips to make it happen. High pressure for us? You bet. First day we went out in Cozumel and yes, yes, yes: we found the so wanted Cuberas of the right size. Currents made it hard and we ended up without Cubera on the boat. Great exciting times though. Next trip. New chances.
The discipline I was talking about before… it is really tempting to shoot another fish at a certain point of the trip. It is a feeling (as a guide as well….) of getting almost desperate. The key is not to shoot another fish than what you came for. Last spot of the day. Still no big Cubera on the boat. Stay positive!!!! Focus… And then it happened. At 15 meters this 24 kilo Cubera appeared, hiding behind a wall of smaller fish. Our guest shot through this hiding wall and made a shot. Not the best shot. It took us half an hour diving down to >20 meters to finally get the Cubera out of his hiding place.
Just before the sun went down it was official: “more than 20 kilo Cubera in the cooler”, mission accomplished.
