Can you spearfish at the snorkel spot off Egmont Key?

Any special regulations that prohibit spear fishing off Egmont Key?

Wife wants to go snorkeling and spearing there and we've never been.

This would be along the SW tip where the remains of the old fort are.

There are no legal prohibitions. Because youu wouldn't be near a pier or dock where public fishing is allowed. But while the water is warm the area is largely free of edible fish unless you eat spadefish.
In the winter time the area should hold sheepshead though.

Exercise caution if you peek your head/body into holes looking for mangrove snapper as the current/swell is often strong and you can get torn up on those barnacles. + 1 that there isnt much to shoot at.
