Depending on how you look at it spearfishing is a lifestyle for those who earn a living from it and those who are passionate about it that they spare time to do it for recreation. In some state spearfishing is unlawful, but they allow people to do it if they are licensed. Some states have set up legal recreational facilities for people to have fun spearfishing.
When you spearfish as a team, it is more fun and more comfortable because you will teach each other. You do not need to know everything about spearfishing because it can be overwhelming at first but when you tag your friends or family with you, learning from them will improve your spearfishing skills.
After creating a team to go with you on this adventure you have to prepare yourselves. Planning will help you to bring all the tools that you need so that you do not get to the fishing spot and get discouraged when you remember the tools you have forgotten. You will need first aid kit, fins, fin socks, gloves, mask and snorkel, wetsuit, float line, and float, knife, a spear gun, shaft, and line, extra gear, and weights and belt. You can add or remove some items from the list.
Relax so that you can focus by getting rid of thoughts that make you anxious. On your way to the fishing spot, there is so much you can do you avoid getting over-excited such as YouTube videos, stay on social media, sing, tell stories and so much more.
Please be friendly, approachable and lose yourself in the moment because spearfishing is all about creating memories with people. Once in while rising up the water surface and call out your team members to ensure that everyone is safe and having a good time. Focusing is nice, but a serious gloomy face and chase fish all by yourself without flexing a muscle will make you feel like you are scaring way the fish because being too serious spoils the fun.
Spearfishing instills self-control or psychological and emotional discipline in a person. Sea creatures avoid danger by determining it using body language hence you need to up your game by approaching the fish skillfully in a way that they will not interpret your body language as danger. You will learn to be disciplined, patient and an observer so that you master the art of moving and behaving like a fish beneath the water. The experience will teach you how to control your disappointment or excitement when you fail to get fish after so much struggle and spending a lot of time under the water or when you hunt several of them.
