Spearfishing with Bahamas' Freedive National Record Holder Luke Maillis

Elite Spearfisherman and Bahamas’ freediving National champion, Luke Maillis, takes us spearfishing off the coast of Long Island using only ‘primitive gear’ made up of a Hawaiian sling and pole spear. Luke, who leads the Bahamas National Spearfishing Team, cultivated his underwater skills growing up in a family of freedivers on Nassau with hopes to better his abilities as a fisherman. Now, living on the ‘out island’ of Long Island, home to the world’s deepest saltwater blue hole that he lost his brother to in a tragic freediving accident, Luke harnesses the skills and techniques he’s learned as a diver and a hunter to evolve the art of spearfishing.
