Islamorada 1st time spearfishing

Hey guys I'm heading down to islamorada on Saturday for the week. This will be my first time spearfishing in islamorada. Any help would be great.

I just want to target in the 20-60 foot depth.

Any help would be awesome

Thanks

Craig

Where in Islamorada are you staying, what depths. Are you tank or freediving. What kind of fish are you looking to target?

Craigerdaddy,

I will be down at MM 75 the week after you. My first time in Islamorada since my checkout dives 18 years ago. I would appreciate you filling me in on anything you learn. I will be doing a mixture of scuba, free diving and fishing.


Thanks and good luck!

Hey Craig, just get 3 miles out south of Alligator light you will have no problem finding fish. Good spearing between 30 and 60 ft of water.
