Interview with Trevor Ketchion How to find spearfishing locations by boat This is a Q&A with veteran spearo Trevor Ketchion focusing on boating reconnaissance for spearfishing. Finding your own unique fishy locations to mark on your GPS is something every spearo with a boat wants to do. Hammering the same old spots is not a smart strategy as you don't catch as many fish or develop skills to find fish for yourself.

Do they save up and live on the cheap as they travel? How do they make the money work?" 6 jobs spearos love article link 44:00 Malcolm Galloway Listener Call 64:00 Jaap Verbaas with the three latest articles from FreediveWire.com The details of CO2 transport and CO2 tolerance for freedivers Highlights: CO2 tolerance is complicated, hence this post is complicated. Hopefully it is less complicated to read than it was to write. Just in case it gives you a headache, here are the highlights: CO2 is transported in three ways: bound to hemoglobin, as bicarbonate ion, and dissolved in the blood stream. Red blood cells are crucial for generating bicarbonate ion, and for facilitating CO2  bound to hemoglobin. Only dissolved CO2 can diffuse to the central chemoreceptors. Physical CO2 tolerance may be governed by blood volume and quality, which is commonly overlooked in CO2 tolerance training. Endurance athletes commonly have the highest CO2 tolerance and storage (in comparison to short and mid distance sprinters). Mental CO2 tolerance focuses on desensitization of the central chemoreceptors. What do lactate and lactic acid have to do with freediving? Highlights: We do not produce lactic acid. We produce lactate. We do also, however, produce H+ in muscle cells. Combine the two, and you have lactic acid. However, the reaction producing the excess H+ is separate from that which produces lactate. Lactate is produced continuously, even at rest. Even when excess O2 is available, we produce lactate. Lactate is not metabolic waste Lactate is used as fuel, both directly and indirectly. Once O2 becomes limited,  lactate starts accumulating and enters the bloodstream (we'll call it blood lactate) Lactate is actually slightly basic... not acidic. But, H+ starts accumulating in the bloodstream too, although at a different rate. Blood lactate can be converted to glucose in the liver, or taken up by the muscle cells once the workload decreases. Blood lactate increases rapidly when you hold your breath, even while doing a static. The dive reflex promotes anaerobic metabolism. The increase in lactate shows that the oxygen supply to the non-essentials is effectively cut off. Peak blood lactate is highest in mid-distance sprinters, indicating sprinting might be a good method to train for freediving. However, endurance training reduces the amount of lactate that accumulates in the blood without affecting the amount of lactate produced in muscle cells. Perhaps we need a bit of both types of training, and perhaps this is why most freedivers believe that high intensity interval training works wonders (it is somewhat in between mid distance and endurance training). Where does lactic acid come in? Well, hydrogen and lactate occur in equilibrium with lactic acid (H + lactate = lactic acid). In blood plasma the rate is about 1:20 for lactic acid to lactate. So lactic acid does play a role, but it is minor. Actually, it is minor when it comes to muscle functioning. Learn More What cardio can do for your freediving Many freedivers shy away from cardio because they believe that cardio does not benefit freediving. However: Endurance runners have the highest blood volume compared to short and mid-distance sprinters Endurance runners have the highest blood quality (Hb) compared to short and mid-distance sprinters Endurance runners have the highest CO2 storage capabilities compared to short and mid-distance sprinters Endurance training reduces the amount of lactate that accumulates in the blood without affecting the amount of lactate produced Endurance training drastically reduces recovery time Base cardio is very beneficial to recreational freedivers and spearfishers Base cardio is likely very beneficial to competitive freedivers VO2 max has never been shown to negatively effect freedivers of any kind, however there is some theoretical basis to say that it will negatively effect pool disciplines such as dynamic and dynamic-no-fins.

However, Tim believes that the situations he has encountered while spearfishing have been the key to learning and understanding anxiety triggers and then developing and employing strategies and techniques to overcome it. His idea is not to avoid discomfort but to embrace it and try to use the situations as opportunities to heal, grow and overcome anxiety. Here are a few of the key ideas and points; GET COMFORTABLE WITH THE UNCOMFORTABLE Accept anxiety, learn from it and if needed get help to take its power away Don't fight it, sit with it and learn to move forward anyway Learn breathing techniques to relax on the surface and reduce fear and anxiety Being in stressful situations can help you overcome long standing beliefs Relaxing in situations that most people (even those who don't have anxiety) would panic in Turn fear into curiosity - sharks/current/rough seas. Ground yourself in the moment by paying attention to the details. Fight or flight - there is no flight out at sea. Prepare to not be prepared Relax and enjoy - surface intervals-  find what works for you. Speak up about that things that deeply affect you - but it falls on you to make change Get help when you need it from a professional 70:50 Dive Watch Conversation 74:25 Spearo Q&A Could you describe what the spearfishing experience means to you in one sentence? It has given me deep confidence within myself and shown me what I am truly capable of mentally and physically. What is the single best piece of advice you have ever been given for spearfishing? Slow down and take your time, dive within your limits Who has been the most influential person or people in your spearfishing? My friends, these are guys who’ve been diving a very long time, and took the time to share their passion with me. If you could go back in time to when you were just starting spearfishing and give yourself some advice, what would you say? Stop overthinking it  - stop trying to control everything and every situation, roll with it. During your 1 years spearfishing what is the biggest lesson you've learned? To be comfortable in situations that are well outside my comfort zone What current challenges do you face in your spearfishing and how are you approaching them? The biggest one is still the anxious tendancy to overthink, overplan, get panicked. Rather than let it take hold of the day I now learned tools to deal with it. - Breathing techniques Mindfulness Take a break and reset Move spots Meds for seasickness Don’t spend a week planning SLOW DOWN Who is the best person to go spearfishing with and why? My good mates! I feel calmer with them, I know they have my back, the take the time to teach me new things, then know the good places to get in the water ;) most of all we all share the same passion and a common goal - could possible touch here on the business we are setting up. What would be your fish of a lifetime? 6 monts ago I jsut wanted a huge snapper of kingi, I had set my comfort zone at what I was doing here in NZ - After cuvier and being in the big open sea in a more exposed environtment I really want to go further a field - ultimate fish for me would be a big doggy, they just look like they would put up one hell of a fight (i say this now but in the moment I would be peaking out!) haha id also really like a mahi mahi I think they look awesome and I ate one in raro once, it was amazing. What is the spearfishing destination that you would most like to go to? Next I would like to go to Raro I think this would be a good step into some difference species and diving. Id also really like to go to Bali to do the deep week free diving course. Id also like to go to the Three Kings.

Justin Lee Spearfishing Interview Fierce, uber-friendly and a true life-long learner is how I'd describe Justin after chatting with him. Justin is absolutely sold out on the lifestyle hunting and spearfishing provides. Big themes in this interview include; learning something from every person you encounter (taking arrows), maintaining an openness to whatever you are engaged in and learning continuously, and just being a person who is fun to hang out with. One of the standout stories for me, was Justin being hoisted out of the water in 80 fathoms of water from right in the middle of a Tiger Shark highway....at nighttime. This interview packs some dynamite tips and mindsets. Listen in! Mentioned in this episode North Florida Shootout.
