Daytime Spear Fishing

Posted: Updated:
Fishing and Florida pretty much go hand in hand.. And it's not just for sport, it's big business too..

 There are all kinds of fishing out there, rod and reel, net fishing and Bryan Anderson tells us all about spear fishing, probably the most adventurous of them all.

There's a huge Spear Fishing Tournament that's been going on for years happening in St. Petersburg this weekend, details are below:
Back in 1956, fifty divers entered the very first St Pete Open. The Open has grown every year, to an annual attendance of more than 300 competitors! More than 6000 people, over 40 years, have taken part in the St Pete Open, making it the premier spearfishing event in the world. No other tournament draws such a crowd, or has the consistently huge following of The St Pete Open, which is hosted annually by The St Pete Underwater Club (SPUC).
