Hi Tanya - Good information! After reading the brief explanation of regulations in the link I see it does not mention pole spears. Are they legal to use in the Bahamas?

Hey CB.. I know spearfishing is legal but you'll need a permit you can get that at the customs office. Should still be free. Not sure if pole and spear fishing are the same?

And just because the season's open again doesn't mean you need to go spearing every lobster you see. Take only what you can eat and make sure the tail is 6 inches or more. Thy spiny lobster is not on the endangered list so let's keep it that way!

A Hawaiian sling is the ONLY approved spearing device and you must be 200 yards offshore if you're on Eleuthera.

Tail is supposed to be 6" long. Or 5 1/2" on some sites.
