101 Spearfishing with Sharks. Tips, stories, wisdom and more
This is a 3 part interview talking about the hazards of spearfishing with sharks.
The first section kicks off with Turbo interviewing Mitchell Marriott, a Brisbane local spearfisherman who had his first scare with a 3m shark and wanted to learn more about spearfishing with sharks. Second interview is with one of my good Twitter buddies Rene Nel, @diverene who joins us all the way from South Africa where he recently experienced a severe Great White Shark attack while spearfishing close to Capetown. Rounding out the interview with just a good solid overview and some very practical ideas is local legend Trevor Ketchion. If you’d like to hear more from Trev listen to our interview with him here or join him on the Submerged Pscho’s Facebook page where you will find some of the best spearfishing videos ever.
Whenever you tell someone that you go spearfishing the inevitable question is “but don’t you see lots of sharks?”. The short answer (depending on whether or not you’re speaking to attractive ladies in a bar” is that yes, sometimes we do. Most of us at some stage do see shanrks and so it’s a good idea to learn about how to deal with shark issues while spear fishing. Listen into this episode for a good overview of this issue.
