    NSP:112 Melbourne Spearfishing | Live Panel Interview

    NSP:112 Melbourne Spearfishing | Live Panel Interview

    Melbourne Spearfishing 101 This is a live panel interview recorded in-store at Adreno, Melbourne. Panel members (left to right) included Luke Latham (Adreno Store Manager), James Beckan (@southernspearfishing), Isaac 'Shrek' Daly and Sven Franklin (Club Spearfish President).  This is a pretty comprehensive chat covering seasons, species, predominant conditions, locations and nearly everything else a spearo visiting/living in the area might be interested in. This live Melbourne Interview and Spearfishing trip was paid for by Thank you legends - I had a blast. Live audience community questions included! Listen in:) Connect with the boys Also Mentioned | Catching Crayfish Time Stamps 04:00 Introduction with Luke Latham 12:40 Developing skills on Melbourne Species 17:15 Finding the right locations, understanding the seasons and movements of fish 20:20 Apps that are useful in the area.  Navionics  Google Earth Triggerbrothers.com.au Windy weather app 25:00 Rules and Regulations for spearfishing 26:20 Community Q&A What are the legal requirements for a dive float and flag in Victoria? FOR SPEAROS in Victoria, any vessel with divers operating from it must always display signals by day or night to inform other vessel users. The daytime diver below signal is the international Code Flag 'A', at least 750 mm long and 600 mm wide for vessels less than 10 metres in length. FOR ALL BOAT/JETSKI USERS on Victorian waters a five knot speed limit applies to all operators within: 50 m of a person, for example a swimmer 50 m of another vessel 100 m of a vessel or buoy on which a 'diver below' signal corresponding to the International Code Flag 'A' is displayed – a white/blue flag. 21:30 How can I improve my breathhold for spearfishing? Sven “I would consider apnea walks for improving my breathhold for spearfishing. Apnea walks are basically holding your breath and counting the number of paces you take” 35:00 Jetski Spearfishing? How do you anchor? Is losing equipment an issue? 37:00 How do you find good ground for finding squid? James "The best ground is Southern Port Phillip Bay. Queenscliffe, Portsea through to Rye. But you can find them everywhere at the right times of year." 40:00 How do you find crayfish in Melbourne and capture one successfully? To catch crayfish while freediving in Victoria it’s helpful to have a torch for looking caves, cracks and under rocks. You also need robust gloves as the spines are rough and you need to protect your hands. Find cracks and caves that are relatively protected from current. When you get hold of the crayfish don’t grab the feelers, go for the base of the horns. 45:30 Do you ever target gummy sharks? 48:20 What is your typical breath hold while spearfishing in Melbourne?  A range of breathholds from the panel was 30 seconds to 70 seconds for most Melbourne spearfishing. These are all experienced divers who dive often. 52:00 Any tips for hunting Yellowtail Kingfish successfullly? Svens advice “Time in the water off Cape Shank or Phillip Island” James “Deal with the excitement and try and calm down. Get some exposure to being in the water around them.

    NSP:111 I DIVE ALONE | The Spearfishing Dilemma

    NSP:111 I DIVE ALONE | The Spearfishing Dilemma

    A dilemma is when the two choices in front of you are difficult. If you want to go spearfishing but you don’t have a dive buddy then your choices are; to dive alone or stay home. One choice involves a higher level of risk but also the possibility of fun, solitude and all the other wonders we experience when spearfishing. The other; less risk but a missed opportunity to spend the day out in the water. “Your spearfishing buddy is your only true piece of safety equipment when diving”. This is as close to Gospel truth in spearfishing as it gets, so why dive alone? Full shownotes available here This episode is a frank chat about diving alone. Pro’s, Con’s, everything. Listen to this episode and subscribe to the Noob Spearo Podcast MORE on the Spearfishing Dilemma A dilemma is sometimes described as being stuck between a rock and a hard place. In spearfishing this inst just a figurative illustration though, it’s a reality especially chasing crayfish (lobster) or another hole dwelling tasty creature. And caves aren’t the only risk, not by a long shot. Let’s add shallow water blackout, boat/jetski traffic, cramp, current, sharks and all of the other less likely risks to the list. The fact is that having a buddy drastically reduces/mitigates every single one of these risks… BUT…. Let’s be honest. Some spearfishing buddies are so s**t you might as well be diving by yourself anyway. AND… There are other appeals to diving alone despite the greatly increased risk of doing so. This conversation with experienced spearfisherman Pat Swanson is an open and candid chat about the reality of diving alone.

Actionable Review

Shrek and Turbo,

Excellent podcast guys, I’ve learned a lot in 100 episodes. The wealth of knowledge shared from across the globe has definitely increased my awareness of the lifestyle and made me a better spear fisherman. Listening to the experiences of so many great divers is the reason I joined a club, it’s great to have that on my commute every day.

One area I’d like to hear more about is how the guys who make custom wood guns, come to decide on shape, design, wood, length, etc given their target species and ocean conditions. The entire process, from idea to food on the table.

Just a thought and a request, looking forward to the next 100 episodes!

-Eric
