Why Choose a Camo Wetsuit for Spearfishing - Diversworld

Spearfishing is an exciting water sport that requires a lot of skill and patience. However, to be a successful spearo, it’s not just about your technique. Your choice of wetsuit can make a big difference in your success rate as well. If you’re an avid spearo, you might be wondering if a camo spearfishing wetsuit is necessary. The answer is yes, and here’s why.

Blend in with Your Surroundings

A camo spearfishing wetsuit can help you blend in with your surroundings. By doing so, you can sit motionless and let the fish come to you. This is perfect for catching skittish reef fish.

The camo design also breaks up your lateral lines underwater, making you appear smaller than you actually are. This can trick fish into thinking that you’re not a threat, increasing your chances of getting a good shot.

Avoid Looking Like Prey

Wearing a plain black wetsuit might make you look like a big, fat seal. This is exactly what many sharks like to feast on. Wearing white however looks like a flesh wound to predators, making them sense an injured animal, thus easy prey to have a go at.

A camo spearfishing wetsuit can help you avoid looking like prey, and it can also make you a little less obvious underwater. However, keep in mind that if you’re splashing around making a ruckus, no amount of camo can help you stay unnoticed. You still need to develop a proper stalking technique, no matter what you’re wearing.

Choose the Right Camo

Make sure you’re buying a camo spearfishing wetsuit that matches the environment you’re diving in. If you mostly reef dive, opt for the green or brown style of camo print. If you’re in open water, the blue camouflage might be a better option.

Keep in mind that the pattern is also important. You want lots of big splotches to break up your outline, not small differences that all look the same from a distance.

Is Camo everything?

In our experience, you’ll still need to hone your spearfishing skills to be a successful hunter.  There are however small benefits to spearfishing in a camo wetsuit.

You can be a little less obvious underwater, and if you’ve got your stalking and underwater hunting techniques down, a camo spearfishing wetsuit can help you close in on those last couple of meters. Plus, it looks cool!

Ultimately, the choice is yours. Choose a camo spearfishing wetsuit that matches your environment, and most importantly, have fun out there!
