Hunter-Reay delights in the many ways to catch a fish, but spearfishing is among his favorites. "I find it incredibly challenging to get right," he explains. "A spear in water just doesn't fly like it would in air, and it's tough to catch a fish; you have to sneak up on them."
The deed is done with a high-quality Riffe speargun, but adding to the challenge is the fact that he hunts hogfish, grouper, and snapper deep below the surface – while holding his breath. The best spearfishing, he says, can be had in the Florida Keys.
