June is the beginning of the end for the pelagic fishing off Long Island. There are still some fish in the area, but the bite seems to quiet down a lot. As summer progresses, we like to engage more into the spearfishing. The weather in June is some of the best year round, with calm winds and long sunny days. The spearfishing off Long Island is some of the best in the country. There have been a few world records taken here and also plenty of big hogfish. Spearguns are not allowed to be used in the Bahamas, which makes for a more challenging hunt. Using primitive gear, such as Hawaiian slings and pole spears, it forces the spearo to play cat and mouse games with the fish. Understanding the character of each fish is key towards getting close enough for the shot. No matter if you are a hunter by land, or a fisherman on the boat, a day in the water spearfishing will enthuse anyone who is in to the sport. You do not have to be an athlete free diver to make bottom, Long Island provides different depths to accommodate all sorts of spearos from the novice, to the world class. If you are traveling to Long Island and are adventure seeking, you will not regret a day out spearfishing.
