Offshore Naples artificial reef

This was a dive in around 80 FOW at an artificial reef out of Naples/Fort Myers area. Speared some nice snapper at this spot along with some big porgy as well. Still new to this whole spearfishing thing so I miss some shots. Always right in front of their nose or right above the head.

Saw TONS of scamps and a handful of gag grouper, not the number of gags I was hoping for. 
Also, tons of nice snapper and lane snapper.

    I enjoyed watching the video.  Proof that grouper have not really returned yet from the 2017 red tide decimation.  Not sure if Im a fan of spearing, doesn't seem sporting compared to angling.  But, its legal so go at it.   Amazing to see how many small fish cover that reef.

    It's pretty sporting since the Sharks have a chance to get you too.
