You don't even have to shoot anything on Bora Bora for it to be bad ass.  I was there for about a week 10 years ago.  The diving is, obviously, amazing.  I saw a grouper (or that's what I thought it was) that must have been 200lbs, followed him around forever.  Dude was tame, I would have felt weird about shooting it.... kinda like shooting an animal at a petting zoo.  There are also monster mantas everywhere.  You'll spend 10 hours a day in the water.  I rented a little skiff with a 15hp outboard for like 60 bucks a day and went all the way around the island, diving all the way.  I seem to remember something about only the locals being allowed to fish in the lagoons (which BB is surrounded by).

Yes they do and it mainly done at an out island called Favarea I believe, surly I misspelled it. But check it out and punch in spearfishing Tahiti.
