This happened a couple weeks ago. I posted it on spearboard but thought you guys here may find it interesting. The whole encounter lasted about 12 minutes. I was about 500 yards from the beach when it started. Despite lunging at and hitting the shark several times I ultimately had to keep retreating to the beach because he wouldn't leave me alone. I have a camera mounted to my speargun and was able to record a lot of what happened. I ended up with one of the best tasting sheepshead I ever ate. Since that day I have changed my rigging and gear quite a bit and decided that I will be doing no more solo spearing trips, lol.
