haven't used one before but i would recommend you jump on the dpi website and check regulations involving where you can use it what you can use it for etc.

Yeah that's the best bet. Also check if you need any other equipment (like a diving flag) as I know my mate had to carry a fair bit with him when he went spearing years ago

Your probaly not going to hit any fast moving fish like a salmon with a Hawaiian sling, but your best bet at a fish is to try for flathead/ flounder or leather jackets. At night along the shallows of the penisula hold good number, Look for the eyes of fish or shape of head. I beleive you need to stay 30m away from any jetty/ pier using any spear as well, good luck

Good luck hitting anything with the sling! Best bet would be to get a decent speargun, as it makes the job much easier.
