My pole fishing times were overwhelmed by living in the Florida Keys, when spear fishing was fantastic and I learned to compare pole fishing to throwing a line and hook into a grocery store (pole fishing) versus walking in and picking out what you want (spear fishing).

Snorkel through a school of 40 Barracuda while stalking that huge red snapper that sells for $5 a pound at the local fish markets, to say nothing about the lobster! My cousin caught (with a bang stick) a 600 pound grouper. The local fish market would not buy the fish,so he parked his pickup out front and started giving people 20 pound chunks of that fish. It wasn't long before the market owner came out and bought the rest.
