Interview with Sean Hascup
Costa Rica Spearfishing Guide at Hascup Hunts
Sean joins us to share a bit about his spearfishing journey. The adjustment from Florida to Costa Rica spearfishing conditions was quite interesting to learn about. He started spearfishing in Stuart, Florida chasing Lobster and other species while pole fishing but when the fish weren’t biting Sean decided to jump in and try spearfishing. He saved up money slowly to buy his first spearfishing gun, an AB Biller. Seans hunters mindset becomes quickly apparent in this interview. Listen into how he observes his environment and fish behavior. Big highlights of Sean Hascup’s interview were hunting tips and knowledge for Cubera Snapper, Wahoo and Tuna.
