Spearfishing expert and Phil Friedman Outdoors All Star Al Schneppershoff made a bold prediction on the Phil Friedman Outdoors Radio Show on Monday (20 minute mark). “I will spear a white seabass on Wednesday and Thursday and they will be over 40-pounds.”
As Schneppershoff prepared to go in the water on Wednesday morning near Palos Verdes in Southern California, he was feeling confident. “I know I have put a lot of pressure on my shoulders but I’m going to pull this off.
Schneppershoff has been free diving for decades. His love of the sea and free diving came from his father who a free diving and fishing fanatic. Al’s father was actually attacked by a great white shark at Guadalupe Island when he was 9-years old. His father bled to the death while Al was on the boat. “I could have stopped free-diving but I always thought that by continuing, I could honor my father best.”
Al's larger goal this year is to spear a 100-pound white seabass. Schneppershoff conducts free diving and spearfishing classes as well as hosts several trips to Turtle Bay in Baja California. You can contact him direct at 310 595 4214.
Schneppershoff is in the water off Palos Verdes now. PFO will keep you up to date on how his prediction fares.
No white seabass on either day for Schneppershoff; he will be at it soon again.
