Interview with David Hochman
One of the coolest dudes in spearfishing, David Hochman joins us fresh from a day out spearfishing aboard his Rhode Island based, Spear-It Charters vessel. With 40+ years spent in the water spearfishing and commercial fishing, Davids knowledge of the marine environment is extensive. We do a massive drop down into targeting Striped Bass, their behavior, environment, sustainable fishery and more. He holds the current world spearfishing records for Striped Bass with both Pole Spear and Speargun + he’s put more guys onto Striped Bass than anyone alive – he knows his stuff!
Listen in for all the usual laughs + tips, techniques and wisdom from this weeks special guest, David Hochman.
