Easy! Just substitute 'Spear' for 'Harpoon'!:lol:GraphiteZen said:Natives used to spear sturgeon. However, even if it were legal for non-natives to spear that particular species you wouldn't catch me trying!!!!!
fishtales said:It is not legal here but if it was I'd probably do it. The best spot would deffinatly be at my favorite fishing spot.
The only people I can think of that might do this type of fishing around here for non game fish would be those guys who get paid to retreive golf balls from the ponds at golf courses. I mean if it where me doing the work why not get a little fishing in too.

pre-western TAKEOVER.... hmmm... what rights?kaimuki49 said:What if the fisherman claims native rights. ie, to harvest fish as they did pre-western take over? (calm down, just making discussion here) If it was the normal and customary cultural practice to spear salmon (since there were no sporting goods stores to buy angling gear), should that practice be allowed? This would mean no red neck spearing, just indigenous peoples. Just chewing the fat here waiting for my next xanax.
