Spearfishing Hawaii THE LOST CLIPS + Advanced Spearfishing TipsJun 17, 2021
What's up guys, welcome back to another episode of Ryan Myers Expeditions. I go spear fishing a lot and try to record every dive, but I don't always have enough footage for a full video. Here are those forgotten gems, as always. I'm going to guide you through every dive to make you a better diver guys if you've learned anything from me like this video please so more people can see it and then we'll see you in the water so this first clip. right here i was diving with my friend wes and tyler and this is going to be an alua but i want to talk to you about kind of a beginning today on this kind of full set of
clipsand that's to keep in mind your bubble and what you're giving it asking a fish to pretend you're down here you're at the bottom you're hunting these fish and now we know from watching my videos if you've been paying attention you can't go to the fish you have to wait for that fish to come to you, but that's a big question and you have to lie in the right place and do the right things and be close enough to where he is to ask him to come to you but also not too close to scare him so that's kind of what which we're going to be looking at today in all these
clipsso here I am in the background this is probably 60ft and we're looking for ukus we saw a lot of ukus we filmed a lot of ookus this day but why?
Am I that far from the crown? I'm too far away. You know I'm here in the arena. Yes, I'm anticipating. I'm not necessarily looking for the crown. more hidden a little bit on that edge right there where those boulders are right now i would have a smaller question those fish that are on the reef i could still hunt to my right or offshore on the sand if they wanted to come because they are always there on that edge and if there was something up there on that reef, I could ask them to come down to me and I would. it wouldn't be too big and i could get them in range and shoot them so right here i actually see the alua and i do my standard grunts which i do every time i go to the bottom and then because i see that alua and he has to go that far i have to follow making more growls to tempt him out of his crown leave his sanctuary you know his protection his food all he's doing out there and all i have to do is be small enough i take the risk but i present myself as a reward big enough for him out.
I have to be food, you know, and also not be threatening for him to come and cross all that reef and then all that open space and make him come. and I lay out a shot and through those multiple grunts and this longer dive, I can do that, but it could have been so much easier there next to the coming ledge. I get the shot just an inch short of a stone's throw there. it actually bends my shaft right here, which isn't ideal. I have had this. I remember this axis. its axis for a long time i was pretty sad but hey thats the cost of doing business some days i managed to get it here, get it to the surface, push it hard enough that i wont let it back on that reef and thats kind of the goal getting to the surface it hasn't gone into the reef it hasn't tied me up it hasn't entangled me and then immediately wes goes down and hits his second shot and i can secure another beautiful alua here but i want it over and over again today look at that same mentality of your bubble fish, what you are asking the fish to do and go from there to make them better divers, here we go, that's a lua thing. up so this is another clip here of me again obviously i'm in the background and i want you to talk about the same topic again pay attention to what i'm asking this fish to do you can see that big moana kali there obviously i'm hiding against the rock i'm hiding pretty well and they've got their kind of fish ball in the re and they're doing their thing and i made it down without scaring them and now i have to lure them to me in a subtle way but i have to get you close to a considerable distance. you know and that's always the kind of balance you have to think about, how close you want to land to your target so you don't scare him off, but also how close you want to be so he doesn't have to ask him to do as much.
I don't want you to travel. He does not. He's only going to travel a certain distance to come check on me. That is what happened here. I got him to come. just close enough and get that shot I was looking for and land one of my favorite fish here so the last clip was a little further from the target or the fish ball and in this next clip I'm going to kind of do the opposite where I go down and i'm right on the ball i'm right where that fish is i don't need to ask him to come for me any kind of distance all i need to do is go down and not scare him and not scare all those little fish so you'll see i get to the background, I'll get in here, I'll do it. just sit there really chill and then line up and see all those fish i haven't scared anything all i have to do is line up take the shot and stone another big beautiful monaco so again here i am already at the bottom, i have a face planted so this was a moo dye.
This is a mood technique. If I see one around, I'll plant my face in the sand and just stare at the sand. as long as you can come up really nice and slowly and then look and see if that moo is there now a lot of times that move is or isn't there but what's crazy is all the other fish that love that technique too. and again those moana kali as soon as i raise my face they are right in my face i don't know how far they had to travel this time but they are right. ere getting stone shot at another moana university so here again already in the background and you'll see the big pile of fish will be right in front of me and then again to my right and they're kind of hanging on those two rocks and i hid on the other side of the main part of the reef ledge and i'm waiting for them to go back and forth there so then i can take my shot and you can see that's my target right there that moana kali is going back and forth between these rocks with all those fish I'm hiding I'm waiting I'm not asking you to do much all I'm asking you to do is the same thing you've been doing and you'll present me with an opportunity and then right here I can get that stone's throw away and again you guys have to pay attention to what they are doing on the reef and what are your goals?
Are you trying to make those fish go too far or are you too close to them? Just another thing to lose weight. k about improving your hunting wherever you are in the world this here is a pretty sick shot from just a few days ago and again on the same topic of what are you asking a fish to do this is sunset this is like if the sun had already set these fish right now they're in a super aggressive type of feeding mode they're always a lot dumber because they're just trying to make the most of that last bit of light to get some food and i went down to the bottom here i don't have to do much i just have this little 70 centimeter roller i just went out with sam i was like i had to go find something for food this thing doesn't have a reel it doesn't have a float line i was just looking for fish little ones and then this ooku appeared out of nowhere obviously being very aggressive now you see he could have taken it. that one shot back there but with a little gun like this that 70 I know I need to wait for a good shot and with it b Being so laid up at night I know I have a good chance of that fish getting even closer which again it did because I don't have a reel or anything like that.
I have to fight this thing to the end. On the surface I was so excited about this uku right here I think definitely this was definitely probably the biggest fish I've ever caught on the 7d we got another dive here and again you can see I'm at maybe 40-50 feet of water and I'm kind of on the edge of that roll-off and I'm not hunting anything in particular here you'll see a little bit above me is where that kind of a ball of fish and life and then I'm going to look back, two over the ledge, maybe that's where those ookus will come from or those ooh-hoos or even those big moana collies, so go down to the bottom, find my position, put my left hand in a place that I can easily turn my body around 360 degrees to look and see what comes in.
You can see up there above all that life. the joes would come from up there the moana collies might come from up there if i look over my back you know this is definitely where that uku or those pelagic fish would come from that's the rainbow runners right there that might come totally up in range just slowly looking around and seeing some of what i see and what opportunities present themselves you'll see i look over here to the left i think ooh go in right there that big pretty blue i don't shoot a lot of these but every once in a while i like to take one and just browsing through the gifts one shot managed to close the deal and land this beautiful blue here so we have another dive here and again this is a good opportunity to see how your targets can change and evolve over the course from a dive you know I'm on my way to the bottom I don't really have any kind of agenda I haven't seen any of that already I'm aiming at what I want to shoot and I'm just oy I'm going to get as lumpy as I can you see that little patch of sand right there that's always what I look for as a place to be comfortable to put my knees to relax and then I'll always try to be a little on my knees so my My left hand can be a little higher than my knees so I can be as comfortable as possible down there to relax and stay there as long as I can so I can I'm there I have my left hand planted I turn around I'm looking I can see what's there a couple of ooh hoos out there in the distance I pull the gun as slow as possible you saw that movement right there extremely slow because if I do some kind of rattle if I move that gun too fast it all goes away and once you scare all those little fish that they're getting closer right now all those pilanis all those you know ophelicalas everything goes so when that gun moves it's very very slowly and always with a purpose i'm just moving I have that gun because I think that's going to shoot in that direction now and you can see it moving back and forth now I'm going back to the right because I think this blue one is going to present a shot unfortunately it's not moving but this red one appears and then right there gets another beautiful shot on another red uber delicious and here's another gem I recently shot.
I don't get much of a chance on these big giant daytime lobsters so when I saw this one I thought I wouldn't screw this up it was probably like 60-70 feet and you can see it was too big to grab like I couldn't even grab it with one hand but I managed to get it off the reef. there take my weapon too and then bring them up to the surface. I don't know what the daytime lobster is about, but it's almost like they taste better, maybe because you don't have 20 of them at once, you know? you go at night they usually fill your bag but you go by day and it's just kind of a bonus more and more lately i seem to get caught up a bit and just film the moments around me you know i'm out there to fish with harpoon that is what brought me to these remote places out of the way and brought me to these depths but while I am there there is so much more the ocean has to offer that you can see and enjoy while you are here this stingray was one of them i just always filmed them for sam they are sams favorite animals i always get shot and then these beautiful hammerheads are only at school i guess this time of year they go up and down i know some of the boats are there outside, they are just looking for them. just amazing stuff to see what the ocean has to offer it's not just about pulling the trigger guys sometimes it's just about enjoying the moment huh thank you guys so much for watching this video if you haven't already you liked it, do it. again is all i ask of you gu yes it helps this video reach more and more people and if you made it this far you know you enjoyed this video and go ahead and subscribe and see you next time here at ryan expeditions myers.
