Spearfishing PEI

Hello everyone, I might be moving to PEI (Prince Edward Island) in Canada later this year. Kinda bummed out about it but their will probably be a lot to do up there.

Anyways I wanted to know if there is any kind of diving/spearfishing that can be done in PEI, and if it's worth packing my gear. Any info on that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Scotty

Check Deeper Blue. I was thinking about a summer vacation up there...but it never happened.
Looks like a pretty area! Plus, the BFT!

Re: Spearfishing PEI

No idea, never been, only heard. If I had to guess, I would say that place is "all or nothing, big boy hunting". As in, if your going spearfishing, your going bluewater spearing for huge tuna, not so much shore diving...

Thanks! And you're sure that you can legally spearfish there? I looked on a few websites including Canada's fish and game website, but I couldn't find info on spearfishing regulations. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Spearfishing PEI

There is plenty of fish, but illegal to spearfish in salt water. You'll have to go as a poacher, which is what people do.

The rules for line fishermen are so restrictive, it makes it not worth while.
