Blowgun Fishing
« on: December 11, 2014, 08:36:32 AM »

I heard a few friends talking about this the other day, and was wondering is any of ya'll could shed some light on this information -

Apparently blowgun fishing has the same regulations as spear fishing, meaning with a license you can take non-game fish.

any truth to this?
It looks right to me but i know a lot of ya'll have been reading hunting proclamations and tpwd regs alot longer than me.

i am looking at this as a way to selectively catch yummy  nongame fish. i saw blowguns listed as arms or firearms in the hunting section but then again so was archery equipment, which is allowed with bow fishing


here is the spear definition for clarity



(Spear

Any shaft with single or multiple points, barbed or barbless, which may be propelled by any means, but does not include arrows.

    May be used to take NONGAME fish only.

Spear Gun

Any hand operated device designed and used for propelling a spear, but does not include the crossbow.

    May be used to take NONGAME fish only.)
