Darkhouse Pictures 2007-2008 Season!!!!!

Recommended Posts

bassNspear

Well boys and girls, the start is just around the corner, so everyone can place pictures here from and in the spear house. Please make sure that they are clean pictures as we all know that we cant have pictures of fish on the spear.

Please no pictures of fish on the spear.

Look forward to seeing some great photos for the season. Now we just need some ice. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

OH MAN!!! I love it. Do you mind if I steal your picture for my desktop? I need to take this sport back up. Can you guys take pictures just of your spear hole with your sucker and decoy this weekend for me? I just might need to get a dark house license.

Just put our houses out a few days ago...5 inches of ice is "plenty".

Nice picture and a nice sized spearing hole...but my father is very "picky" about his spearing hole and if it wasn't perfectly square and not as big "as the wood", he is not happy. LOL.

I'm the same stubborn way. I've chipped away at the frame for too long, in one case slipping and taking a nice chunk off the house floor. At that point I knew I needed to cool it.

Great picture. Awesome clarity and color. Looks like somebody found the jungle weeds. That bluegill could be snack food or at least get a nice scratch on his sides if he doesn't get out of the way of that snot rocket!

The blugill that you are referring to is actually a big sucker on a harness. I moved him when the snot rocket came in.

How did you take such a clear picture? I have taken a picture like this, but it is never that clear...even though the lake is extremely clear.

Is the house dark inside when the picture is taken?

Also, is that a sucker in the middle of the hole or a sunny? I always use a live sucker and maybe a decoy with the live sucker.

Wow, that's neat. Now I can barely see the line down to the sucker harness by the tines of the spear....How did you take such a neat picture? I get really bad reflection or nothing since it's so dark....

The house has no windows and is very dark. The picture was taken without a flash.

The water wasnt the clearest but it was clear enough to spear in, my camera doesnt take pictures of how it actually looks. I was up by alexandria on this trip. I usually spear around Hutchinson but every lake around their you cant see 2ft down.

Here is a photo from 2007. Speared this nice northern on Lake Andrusia. Last year this photo had to be removed from the northern/muskie photo thread since there was so many emails disapproving that I had speared this fish. I speared another fish the same size the next morning. Slow spearing but worth it when a fish did show up.

My roommate and I are heading out spearing for the first time tomorrow.

Dude... I love the pic! Nice job!

Rules involving our fish pictures have "adapted" a bit since you last posted that photo I believe.

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.

      @Rick G, it's about the questionable link they left. Either something hard is going to popup. Or someone may end up with a virus. Or both!

      MrPike, you using the 6" or 8" k-drill?
    • Knowknot
      I sure would like to see your video Curt, but can't seem to get past the error code myself. Hope it was a good one, and always look forward to seeing them..
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Thanks Rick G that will be this springs project one thin spray on the top and bottom should be just right. Seems they all have this issue you’d think they’d do somthing about it.
    • Borch
      I've got a 9 ah battery ordered in addition to my 5 ah batteries.   I'm thinking I should be in better shape.  But with the ice getting pretty thick I'll be switching to my gas auger soon.
    • mrpike1973
      Thanks for the replies I will be getting one today. Poseidon one thing to check is your blade sharpness Last year I thought my drill was getting weak I put new blades on and away I went.  With this open winter they tend to dull faster just an idea. I'm getting about 15 -18 holes per battery in 20 inches of ice also with same set up.
    • leech~~
      Teach them up in the way they should go. And they will never part from it! Great video!   Mom probably loved the day off too!
