Here's pictures of fish I speared on San Diego shore dives this week with your gun. Speared two white sea bass one day and a yellowtail the next day. It was a first for me for wsb and yt. Not real big, but good eating size.
Since I was used to a closed muzzle Rob Allen gun, it took me a while to learn how to aim your gun. With lots of practice I think I now have it wired. I am amazed with the power of your gun. I am only using two 9/16 bands and yet the gun put the shaft completely through all three of these fish.
Here's a picture of a 20 lb. WSB I speared today in the La Jolla kelp. Your gun is a fish killing machine! So far this summer it has taken 3 WSB, 1 YT and 3 halibut. Last year all I got was a few halibut.
I have a question about the butt pad. Today it came off, but luckily it landed in my kayak so I didn't lose it. I need to re glue it. I am thinking of using "Marine Goop." I have had good luck with this adhesive in the past with marine applications. What would you recommend?
P.S. next time I'll try to include myself in photos.
Here is a picture of a WSB I speared with my GR gun yesterday. He weiged 30 lbs. - my biggest so far. About 20 minutes before I speared this one, I saw a WSB that made it look like a baby - I think he would have been around 60 lbs. He spooked just as I was lining up the shot - one more second and I would have had him.
If I get lucky and spear his big brother, I'll send you a picture.
