clearest I've ever seen it, wondering if anyone knows the rules for something like that.

did it a lot growing up, mangos and sheepies, def some tricky rules around public and private structure, doing it by the mangroves is creepy(even though i doubt a gator would do anything) but see some really cool stuff

I was on Biolab road July 9, saw around a 10 footer strolling down the road.

So if you are a surfer I wish you the prosperity that allows you more time to pursue the salt water dream, and the true happiness that comes from warm water, clean waves and the companionship of your fellow surfers. If you are an internet troll just spewing bs then f off.

Snook are dumb as a fencepost around divers, hence no spearing them.
I'm not sure you could see much underwater, but with a arbalette(sp?) or an arrow from above......maybe.
Trout everywhere.......

Bowfishing in saltwater
The first thing you need to know about bowfishing in Saltwater is Florida defines Spearing as "the catching or taking of a fish by bow hunting, gigging, spearfishing, or by any device used to capture a fish by piercing its body. Spearing does not include the catching or taking of a fish by a hook with hook and line gear or by snagging (snatch hooking)." So, the laws regarding bowfishing are the same as all other methods in which you pierce a fish's body in order to catch it.

I made a list of all the species of saltwater fish which the state of Florida prohibits from being taken by spearing. Any other species not listed may be harvested by spearing.

Billfish (all species)
Spotted eagle ray
Sturgeon
Manta ray
Sharks
Bonefish
Tarpon
Goliath Grouper
Snook
Blue Crab
Nassau grouper
Spotted seatrout
Red drum
Weakfish
Stone Crab
Pompano
African pompano
Permit
Tripletail
Lobster
Families of ornamental reef fish (surgeonfish, trumpetfish, angelfish, butterflyfish, porcupinefish, cornetfish, squirrelfish, trunkfish, damselfish, parrotfish, pipefish, seahorse, puffers, triggerfish except gray and ocean)
Fishermen who catch and/or sell fish harvested by spearing are subject to the same rules and limitations that other anglers in the state are required to follow.
