I am from Hawaii and love to spearfish. Does anyone have any recommendations?

We love to shoot Lionfish here and have the restaurants onboard with cooking them.
We use a special Lionfish spear/sling. Local authorities have lifted the ban on shooting fish with a tank on your back for the Lionfish only.
If your a freediver and want sport fish there seems to be little or no regulations or enforcement if their are rules.

According to Fisheries you must have a Fisherpersons license to spearfish (exception noted above) which you can only obtain if you're Belizean national. However, I've never heard of it being enforced. You takes your chances...

Heads up on coming in with your own spear. Customs is the only place I've seen this be an issue.

I've had guest bring spears in without any problems. Just declared that they would take them home with them - which they did.
