Spear fishing

Anyone know of a bridge or some place accessible by land to spear fish from? I’m heading to west palm area for a dive and thought I might be able to use this gun I bought about 2 years ago. I know the rules for the most part but I was hoping someone knew of a bridge that didn’t allow fishing since I know this was one of the requirements for being able to spear. I thought about Jupiter draw bridge at Jupiter inlet but??? Spearfishing seems pretty much only possible to people with boats wich I don’t have. If I can’t find a spot soon I’m selling this crap. Thanks for any info.

ShoreDiving.com and "Dive Sites" at the top of this page list beach dives in the area.

Phil Foster Park under Blue Heron Bridge is great for diving but no collecting or spearing allowed except Lionfish.

" I thought about Jupiter draw bridge at Jupiter inlet "

I assume you are talking about Cato’s Bridge, I saw a sign that said no spear fishing within 100’

There is a Skin Diving/Spearo shop (not SCUBA) I believe on 1 in WPB or it may be Rivera there that could probably steer you toward some legal spots.
