Learning to Spearfish in Manjack Cay

How To Spearfish Basics and First Time Spearfishing

Learning how to spearfish is like learning to ride a bike, right? Not really. it’s more like learning to sail while holding your breath and walking the plank at the same time – especially when you are being stared down by a shark and circled by a stingray. At least that was our expirence learning to spearfish.

In this post, I’ll share the video that helped me get started spearfishing, and a few tips I discovered after my first spearfish hunt. Let’s get started with the video of us learning to spearfish in Manjack Cay.

Manjack Cay (Nunjack Cay) is an incredible island in the Abacos, and this is where we took out the polespear and learned to spearfish! Hogfish? Snapper? Lionfish? Will we catch anything? After a quick sail from Powell Cay to Manjack Cay, we give spearfishing a try. Oh, and the beach is amazing – as is typical in The Abaco Islands, Bahamas!
