Re: 120 cm Exotic wood reef gun project

The only way to find out if something works is to try it yourself. If you take one fish with your first gun, it is a 100% success; anything more is bonus. If it doesn't work for you, you can always...

Re: Question - Finishing non-typical wood gun

A mithril gun would be beautiful. I have made self bows out of Osage, but never a speargun. Perhaps I need look into my collection of bow staves to see if there is a gun in there!

Re: Little Boat

The classic Baja boat (outside of a Panga) is a 15' aluminum car topper with a 25hp 4 stroke. You can get big wheels that mount on the transom for beach launching. Hundreds of Baja fishermen use...

Re: New to Kayak spearfishing; Loreto, Baja Mexico

Kayaks make a great spearfishing platform, but make sure you keep a close eye on the weather. The Sea of Cortez can get nasty when the wind comes up, and paddling home in rough seas can be an...

Re: Small reel recommendations

Whats the point? The main reason to use a reel or a floatline is to give you more line to let larger fish run. You might as well just add an extra wrap of shooting line

Re: My gun developed a warp. Any ideas?

"Time for a new stock. Reuse all the hardware." Don't waste time trying to straighten it once it has moved. Wood stores energy and it will move again even if you are able to bring it straight. If it...

Re: Extreme left terrorists

In civil wars both sides generally are guilty of atrocities. In the end, the winning side is always right, whatever they did to win, while the losers are always guilty of war crimes.

Re: Imemsa Panga 26 build

Overpowered Pangas tend to squat. The Mexican fishermen usually run a single 35 hp motor, so anything heavier will make it hard to keep the bow down. Trim tabs may help your situation, but you may...

Re: Weedtrimmer line for Mono?

Pretty much everyone here is using guns that cost anywhere from $200 to $1000. A shaft starts at $40. Is it really worth using substandard shooting line to save a couple of dollars?
