Spearfishing Seminar April 22nd 2017 at Bill Jacksons

I have scheduled a spearfishing seminar at Bill Jackson's "Shop For Adventure" in Pinellas Park, Florida. The details are as follows:

Date: Saturday April 22nd 2017
Time: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Fee: $35.00 for adults & $20.00 for kids 16 and under
Food: Lunch and beverages are included
Raffle: Yes

Phone: 727-576-4169 to register (ask for the dive department)

Address:
Bill Jacksons Shop for Adventure
9501 US Hwy. 19 North
Pinellas Park, Fl 33782

I will be covering all aspects of spearfishing from beginner to advanced. Some of the topics I will cover are: selecting the proper speargun, how to use it, how not to use it, how to take care of it, proper banding, shaft selection, tip options, stalking techniques, body language, proper shot distances, realistic ranges of a speargun, shot selection, optimizing shot angles, freeshafting, lineshafting, line types, advantages and disadvantages of just about everything involving spearfishing. I will be using my Red Snapper model to show proper shot placement and shot angles as well as underwater videos (provided by Capt. Ben Bateman aka Fishkilla) showing proper shooting techniques etc.

This is a large facility so we can easily handle up to 100 shooters. However, it really helps to sign up early so they can plan the food and beverages.

Looking forward to meeting everyone,

Shoot Em' Up,

Kevin

The seminar is this Saturday April 22nd. We have had a very good response to this event and we are expecting the attendence to be very good based on the sign up sheet. We still have plenty of room for anyone who can make it.

Re: Spearfishing Seminar April 22nd 2017 at Bill Jacksons

Bumping this up to remind everyone the seminar is tomorrow morning at 10:00 AM.

I will be showing a new video provided by Dan Mc.Mahon from team Headhunter. This video has never been shown publicly. This video shows Dan freshafting Gag Grouper in the Florida Middle Grounds and it will be a great teaching tool on freeshafting. I will be dissecting this video shot by shot and discussing the many lessons contained in it. Many thanks to Dan for shooting this video and allowing me to show it.

I know that many shooters can be a little intimidated by the thought of shooting without a line attached to their spearshaft (i.e. Freeshafting) but once you finally get "off the leash" you will be amazed at how much more productive and fun Spearfishing can be for you.

Walk ups are welcome as we still have room for anyone who wants to attend.

Shoot Em' Up,

KB

I also dug into some of my old photo albums and will be showing some of the history from my commercial spearfishing and shark fishing days. I have never shown these photos publicly.

Just returned from setting up all the equipment for the seminar. Looks like we will have 30 to 40 shooters attending. Thanks to all for attending, I really appreciate it!
