Ive been spearfishing for one year now and am looking in to getting a bigger gun as im going away on holiday to indonesia soon on a surfing and spearfishing trip.
What size gun do i need to be getting in order to get big fish?
Hi Mr Spearo, welcome to the forum.
Id suggest looking in to getting something in excess of 110cm. As you are fairly new to the sport dont go for anything too big (fish and gun!) as you may find yourself in trouble, so probably dont go bigger than 120cm.
A 110cm with a 2 or 3 14-16mm bands would do a good job at getting most fish.
You will need a heavy spear, 7mm thick.
I use the Epsealon carbon stinger, which is also lightweight so good for travel. http://www.epsealon.com/#!prod.....mo-carbone
Just remember that big fish pull hard if you dont stone them dead with a good shot so make sure your float and or reel is strong enough to deal with it.
Finally.... dive safe, no fish is worth your life so stay conservative!
