October is one of the best months for spearfishing, with large numbers of black bream and large bass present off Portland. Visibility over the last few weeks has varied from 2m to 12m and we have been using guns from 80 to 140cm. We got a good catch of bream and bass on 1st October using carbon 80, 100 and 120cm guns off Portland Bill. The fish were all pretty deep, taken at depths between 18 and 23m. The shallows were murky but with a lot of grey mullet forming up ready to migrate.
