6. In the event you fail to spear anything, you may try again so long as the teeming waters have not been fully depleted.

7. Replacing the head of your gig will allow you to spear a larger variety of fish.

You can quit spearfishing at any time by hitting the escape key, the cancel button, or using the cancel action. Similar to fishing, all fish you spear will be recorded in your Fishing Log, Fish Guide, and your Records.
