Underwater Footage Of The World-Record Mangrove Snapper Honey Hole!

Could you imagine catching an 18-POUND Mangrove Snapper?

I think for most of us, we would love to catch a 5-pound mangrove snapper.

Well spearfishing stud Cameron Kirkconnell not only has proof these huge snapper exist, but he has gone down to snapper honey holes like the one in this video (this is somewhere on the east coast of Florida) and plucked world records with his spear.

And if you don’t know 13-time World Record Spearfishing “Champion” Cameron Kirkconnell, you should get to know him.

The guy is one of the most talented spearfishing experts the world have ever seen, and he is just getting started on breaking records and changing the world of spearfishing.

Make sure to check out his super entertaining and hilarious interview we did with him here.

Incredibly Scary Bull Shark Attack Captured On Film!

Talk about every spearfisherman’s worst nightmare…

An unprovoked bull shark cruising right at you with open jaws!

You have mere split seconds to react… what do you do?

It’s tough to say what any of us would have done in this situation, but here is how it played out for Danny Hendricks of Liquid Vision.

Some people were angry he pulled the trigger, while others say he had no choice as the aggressive bull shark was not backing down even after a spear gun was down his throat.

Looking through the somewhat controversial comments on this new YouTube video, here was one revealing another diver’s similar experience when he didn’t have a speargun:

“Yes, this exact scenario happened to me four years ago, the only difference is that I didn’t have a speargun so I was bitten in the calf area. I made it to the surface with only one fin. Today I can walk and dive almost normally again. Never underestimate sharks, they are unpredictable wild animals.”

What do you think?

Let us know in the comments.

Note: this shark encounter recently happened in northern Australia

This Is How You Sneak Up And Stone A 55LB Grouper!

Let’s face it, not all of us will spear a 55lb grouper in our lifetimes…

In fact, most of us (including me) would be thrilled to catch a 55lb grouper on a rod and reel, let alone spear one in 50+ feet of water.

Note: Luke released a really helpful “How To Make A Grouper Rig” linked here if you haven’t yet seen it.

So when I saw this Italian diver named Sebastiano Rosalba sneaking up on a big grouper and then planting his spear right in his head, I had to share it.

I can’t think of a better way to live vicariously through an amazing spearfishing feat like this than watching it from his GoPro view.

Well done!

Enjoy.

This Could Be One Of The Best Spearfishing Videos Ever Made!

Can you count all of the different species in this video?

Wow!

The toughest part about this spearfishing video was trying to pick out the best thumbnail as there were so many of them to choose from.

This guy (Diego Santiago) clearly knows where to find the fish.

There were a couple of times when he couldn’t pull the trigger because there were actually too many fish in the school.

Even had a few whales come into close view towards the end.

And the tuna hopping over the log to get bait at the very end was epic!

Check it out.

This Is What Freedive Spearfishing Looks Like At 196 Feet!

It’s one thing to actually freedive down to 196 feet, but it’s an entirely different ballgame to spear a fish.

Holy smokes!

I wonder how long these guys can hold their breath while not moving!

What was really cool was to see the diver’s view coming up to the surface starting around the 1:33 mark.

I can’t even imagine looking up and seeing 190 feet in between me and the surface!

The only thing that came as a surprise was I figured they would be going after some monster fish if they went that far down.

But I will hold my tongue as I have nothing but respect for anyone that can safely get down that deep.

These guys are Salt Strong no doubt!

Enjoy.

You’ve Got To See This Cobia (And Shark) Honey Hole!

Holy Cobia and Bull Shark Honey Hole!

Wait until you see the wild video below!

Our friend Joey Antonelli and his crew have found the pot of cobia gold off the east coast of Florida.

Of course, that also means they have to fend off and shoot in between sharks while they go after their catch.

Just check out how many cobia are within reach of his spear!

Now before you comment that they took too many cobia, there were 9 divers in this video and these guys never take more than their limit.

Well done gents, and great job on the music selection. I was laughing during the transition.

Have you ever seen this many cobia all in one place?

Let us know in the comments.

Enjoy.

This Is What Happens When You Peek Over A Rock And See A 50lb Grouper!

In the head!!!

Spearfishing is just like fishing…

Some days nothing seems to bite and you can’t find a fish anywhere, and some days lady luck reaches out and presents fish right in front of your face…

In this case, the latter happened as a spearfisherman  slowly peaks over a rock to see a 50lb+ grouper right under him.

With a quick shot to the head, the grouper was brought up and presumably enjoyed my many for dinner.

Great catch.

Note: The video said this grouper weighed in at 55 lbs

Enjoy.

Check Out The Amazing Shot This Lucky Spearfisherman Gets On This Tuna!

If you have ever been spearfishing before, then you know that it is a lot of work to get in position for a perfect shot.

More often than not, the fish don’t exactly line up they way you want them to when they see a diver holding a spear gun…

And when it comes to spearing a pelagic fish, it can be even tougher.

So when a tuna comes right up to you (like it does in this video), you better be ready to take the shot.

Check out the quick reflexes and perfect kill shot this guy gets.

Awesome work!

Enjoy.

Underwater Glock Fishing For Lionfish. You’ve Got To See This!

Take that lionfish!!!

I thought I had seen some creative ways to kill the invasive lionfish, but this video trumped it all.

Our friend Courtland Hunt (his son is the 4-year old fishing teacher that went viral in this video) teamed up with Airborne Arms to see if they could turn a Glock 9mm handgun into a lionfish killing machine in 100 feet of water.

Did it work?

Let’s just say our friend Alex Fogg (the Lionfish Killer) would be proud…

Here is a pic of Courtland about to take down a lionfish with his 9mm.

An unsuspecting lionfish about to get the shot of his life…

Not sure the cost of the ammo (they used lead-free, non-toxic ammo if any of you were worried about them pumping lead all over the ocean floor) is cost effective for most people compared to a speargun or sling, but pretty darn awesome footage!

Who would have thought a 9mm could shoot that well 100 feet underwater.

Pretty amazing.

Check out the video below!

To hear more about why Courtland wanted to try a handgun to shoot lionfish, check out his brief interview with our friends over at Outdoors360 here.

This is his answer as to why:

“People ask me “why?” and I say honestly, “I’m fascinated by guns, but tired of seeing videos on ‘how many watermelons, CD’s, or marshmallows can a bullet travel through. Those things have no applications for me, however, I can now tell you that if a shark (or watermelon) were to attack me at almost any depth that a Glock 9mm would surely protect me.”

Enjoy and do NOT try this at home folks.
