This is the microphone I use: amzn.to/2OvYFUE
This is my dive mask (with gopro mount): amzn.to/2Omg4Po
These are my carbon fiber dive fins: amzn.to/375P39k
Great book about learning how to spearfish: amzn.to/3rM9Zu5
Amazing book about freediving, the ocean, and our connection to these things as humans: amzn.to/3778MFJ
Interesting read on how it’s scientifically proven that being near, in, on or under water can make you happier, healthier, more connected, and better at what you do: amzn.to/3d3USbc
This book is all about big fish, where to find them, and how to spear them. Written by a spearfishing OG, it will inspire you to explore the world, searching for big fish: amzn.to/2OxpcRt
William Trubridge can dive to over 100 meters (330 feet) on a single breath of air, without wearing fins. This well-written autobiography explores his journey to become one of the deepest diving humans in the history of the world, and also helps show the potential that we all have inside of ourselves to dive deep, if we practice: amzn.to/3pe8R0P
Finally, this book tells a tragic tale of an extremely talented freediver and how dangerous this sport can be, if not practiced safely: amzn.to/3aWqdtZ
***If you want to learn how to freedive or spearfish, DO NOT TRY IT ALONE. I recommend signing up for a freediving course to learn how to dive safely and find a buddy do dive with 🤙🤙******

I’m more than likely wrong.. But I remember reading that fish lack the brain capacity to feel pain, so is it unethical to kill what is basically a higher order vegetable? Plus the fish is probably just gonna go get eaten by whale, or... A horse

It’s more sustainable because they aren’t killing hundreds at a time, they get around 5 to eat and call it a day.

Man you didn't need to cite the vegan teacher, that part just made the video bad because it seems like you need approval from vegans for what you do. Just do your thing dude, don't mind the vegans. Hunting for animals is natural.

Who cares what the vegan teacher thinks. She preaches being banned from tiktok is a violation of freedom of speech. And then turns of comments on her US-first videos...

Hunting is the same way, if you hunt ethically. It's better than buying meat at the market.

Also, fish do not have pain receptors and so when you fish, bow-fish, or spear-fish, the fish only enters a state of shock. Fish are also an essential part of the human diet, providing essential “fatty acids”.

Commercial fishing is so regulated now its difficult for fishermen to stay in business. People other than you like to go out and eat seafood that don't like to dive. The environmental wackos outlawed gill nets here in Fl. and they are the most selective gear available, almost no by catch. Sensible gear makes a difference, but it has to be commercially viable. Other countries, mostly communist, and socialist countries are the ones doing the most damage to our seas. Development and over population in areas are causing pollution problems that exacerbate water quality issues. Red tide, algae blooms,etc. Red tide in Fl. kill millions more fish than fishermen ever could. Don't lump all commercial fishermen together, I'm not the problem.

Still two wrongs don't make a right, especially when you use a literal floating garbage pile to hunt fish, you try and be more clean than commercial fishing but when given the opportunity you past by it, used to like that videos, very cool to watch but lost ya respect though

Can you see the fish in there swimming and do you have a long line
Who cares. Food's food. The literal only way to stop fishing is to destroy the human doing it. Nobody that fishes watched this and thought, "you know what? Im not gonna eat fish anymore. Lent will have to change and fish needs to come off the menu." It is seriously laughable. Personally, I use a stringer that puts a hole on their lips. I can keep a fair amount of fish hooked to a rope in the water so they stay alive a lot longer. That way when i prepare them all up for freezing they stay as fresh as possible. No i don't care what they are thinking lmfao.

Birds? Outta all the shit dogs actually chase on the regular ur brain went to birds? That was obviously something u wrote down and had that weird 60yo toddler give the once over since she agreed with ur weird analogy is it because she seems like she has several cats named human names and a couple r even Jr's? Hence neither of u know shit about dogs? Is that lady ur GF? I bet she has children's book in the bathroom but no kids huh? I bet she enjoys finger painting as a hobby huh?

@Jake Shumway oh, I was bringing up that brain size thing for fun. But they do feel pain. “Fish do feel pain. It’s likely different from what humans feel, but it is still a kind of pain.” -from the Smithsonian Magazine. Better source than Wikipedia I guess. Or maybe not.

@Son of a Quack I have no emotional connection to a cow or fish like I woild with a dog. Also meat tastes good. And there isnt really a difference between a fish and cow in terms of being ethical.

Dumb the reason god created fish in the first place is for us to eat them. Not to let them reproduce to such an extent and just leave them be. The sole reason they are ALIVE is se we can eat them. Besides if we didnt they would probably reproduce to such an extent and eventually surpass the human population and take over the world. That goes for all livestock too not just fish. But I am against the way the animals are treated cruelly in industrial farms for their whole lives then brutally slaughtered in a disgusting manner.

I disagree with your point about instinct. Humans are vastly different from dogs. Due to our intelligence, a lot of "instincts" aren't instincts, are instead taught. It's not always true, but a good rule of thumb is the higher the intellect of a species, the less instincts there are and vise versa

Yeah you got to also realize when you eat vegetables how do you make all those from poop can you get that from animals and poop isn't good for water because where's all that you know when or going to go either in the sewer which leads to the ocean and or a lake nearby which all that minore's going to turn into algae and then it's going to stay on top and kill all the coral reef which also kills the fish so there really isn't a good way to eat food either way is bad or good I mean what you do is very good if we all did that maybe we could have healthy diet and we could also farmer-owned animals and you know make it less cruel
