Spearfishing Permits is it legal?

I heard it is illegal to spearfish permits and african pompanos but in some waters in Florida it is illegal. Can someone clarify which waters it is allowable to spear them?

Federal waters are ok, state waters are not.. Don't stop on state waters on the way back in if you shoot one

Federal waters are not the parameter of legal or not legal.
As ApneaAndrew has shown you. The SPZ is the guide.
The SPZ is in State and Federal waters

Well, Federal waters are still the boundary where spearing permit becomes legal, even inside the SPZ...
