    Anyone ever spearfish from the beach? Maybe take a kayak out a mile or so? If so, is there anything worthwhile out there? I am thinking of giving it a try, but dont want to invest in the gear if Im gonna end up just doing it once

    Nothing I know anything about but I’m in for the responses.
    Isn’t that typically done along a reef or some sort of bottom structure?

    Ideally yes. I live in volusia county and mostly wonder if the water is generally clear enough to see fish on the bottom in 40 ft of water. I would imagine you could pick off the occasional kingfish, flounder, whiting or whatever else

    With Volushia county being the shark bite capital of the world, you can count me out.

    If you do, don't tether your catch to your hip. Use a short line on your keeper ring. Or, take your catch up the kayak each time but then you're bounce diving on a tank and that's not good practice. Skin diving won't be an issue.

    I plan on free diving if I end up doing it, thanks for the advice

    I haven’t done any diving here in the gulf. But when I lived in South Florida we went frequently, we had more issues with barracuda than sharks. They’d take a fish right off the spear or your hand.

    You might be able to get out to the new artificial stuff off flagler or single pier, especially with a kayak, definitely want to dive the tides. I know some people dive the inlet, but you cant spear there.

    I dive and have off daytona beach a mile out once was in the water 10 min. I prefer staying on the boat.
