The location is only good a couple times a year. Our target fish is scribbled snapper, the local called it kampuh fish. The water, weather, swell, tide , current were perfect for our playground to be filled with scribbled snapper. We started diving around 8 in the morning. The water visibility was perfect. I felt like a kid in a candy store. The last time i was here was 2-3 years ago, it took both me and antok some time to find the location of the cave , hole, trench and rocky terrain where the kampuh are usually found. The first kampuh i saw, i shot too low and it ripped off, then i see antok not too far heading toward me with a kampuh in his spear, telling me more kampuh on the other side. In total we saw more than enough kampuh to fill the cool box. Some are hard to shoot, some...
The Island of the Gods by Marco Cerieiro The trip to Bali was being postponed for three years, sometimes it was the lack of time and others the unavailability of flights, well what remains is that for a few years all the plans foiled, and the trip was consequently postponed to my great disappointment. Two years ago, Patricia, my wife and companion of adventures on land, (no one convinces her to get under water), accomplished in a couple of hours what I and many others have failed to do in weeks and weeks of contact, She booked and confirmed a trip to Bali, including flights, accommodation and transfers! Once I received the good news about the trip i automatically began to form in my mind ideas about the "ri...
The World Spearfishing Championships in Vigo, Spain, ended on July 8th after a four day gathering that featured two days of socializing and meetings followed by two days of competition.

I just got back from my spearfishing trip to Panama. My dive partner Dave and I had heard so much about the fishing off the Pacific coast of the Azuero Peninsula that we decided long ago to make this our next vacation destination. We packed up our wives and gear, and what a fabulous trip it was! Everything was perfect, but the most exciting part was definitely the “tuna coast” spearfishing. I’d call it a once in a lifetime experience, but when I go again next year, I expect more of the same.We dove at a site called Los Frailes, near the formerly sleepy fishing town of Pedasi, which is now receiving quite a bit of attention from spearos, deep sea fishermen and free divers. Los Frailes is formed by two large rock pinnacles that form a sort-of protected cove where all typ...
Inhaca Island (Mozambique) I went to Mozambique in mid August, dry season, but also winter and wind’s season, great for safaris and to spot the big five in South Africa but not the best time of year for spearfishing, if you are planing a trip to the paradise of Mozambique and you want to go exclusively for diving / spearfishing the best time is December / January. If you need any help planning the trip feel free to drop me an email, i have the all operation organized to spearfishing around Maputo and Inhaca Island. I'm almost a veteran in African waters, i have already dived and gone spearfishing in a bunch of African country's, and don't be fooled, its not easy, i think that all those guys that write in forums and spearf...
