    No, not across the board.  Some areas may be legal while others are illegal, make sure to check with the local DNR or other governing body and get a license.

    The legality also depends on the type of fish and the size of the fish.  While it may be legal to spear a 24 inch grouper, it may be illegal to spear a 22 inch grouper.  These regulations are very different depending on the status of the species in your area.  I agree, check with the DNR and you will get a list of what is acceptable in your area.  And be sure to follow the regulations, its very important to sustainability!
