After you spear the fish

What is the consensus as to the best way to get the fish out of the water after shooting it? Has anyone used one of those sporasub or equivalent floats to hold the fish?

I dive in the Bahamas and the sharks are on you so quick. I am interested in any ideas?

Don't anchor the boat, live boat it and have the driver pick your fish up from you.

Anyone used a boogie board with a bag cooler? I'm thinking of building one.

I think the California guys call that type of thing a Banks Board. Maybe that will give you more hits?

Norcal, specifically.

I use a boogie board float and works well.

Can you post a pic or link of the fish bag you plan to use?

You could maybe build some outriggers with PVC and pool noodles or something along those lines.
