    Used to, in Chch area too. Work and children have got in the way of it recent years. Also got an unfired gun I plan to use this summer. It's a great way to get a feed.

    I mix n match between tanks and free diving. Here in Nelson it’s about getting good vis, kingis out off the Glen in the summer easy access and spat farms if you’ve got a boat.
    Enjoy a kingi hunt , or getting a feed off butters but my heart is still set on hunting crays.

    Being to Niue was fantastic warm and clear. Highly recommended!

    Yeah mate. Queenstown based so south coast, fiordland and west coast swimming.
    The majority of my spearfishing has been on great barrier island the last couple of years since we bought a place up there

    Pies and beers, hard to beat really. Bagged a good snapper when I was up for a weekend a couple months ago. Kingi in coromandel over Easter and then down in Christchurch we have heaps of crays about so got a few donkeys.

    Yea, obviously popular. I reckon it was because it was after the first cold snap of the winter. Matt Watson has this theory on his FB page that all the big snapper come right in shore after the first real cold snap for the season, I'm definitely going to test the theory next year
