I have a freind who wants to come out pike spearing with us but wants to bring his scuba spear gun.
Would that be legal? The regs are not clear enough for on the ice.
If it would be legal, what can he spear? Pike? perch? or just rough fish like carp and dog fish?

FO 219.10 covers this, here is the link:

If your friend is scuba and using his spear gun, see list B in 219.10. Summarized, pike are limited to a hand propelled spear; your friend and his scuba spear gun are limited to rough fish in designated waters only.

Pike spearing is threw the ice also, That means you have to be on the ice, not under it. It might be good for a few laughs if he swims under the shack next to you.

If I can get him to into camera range from the spearing hole, I will be sure to take some pictures. Too funny!
Thanks guys. This will get him off my back on this. Now I just need to find time to just get out again.
Thanks again
Dan
