Darkhouse Pictures 2007-2008 Season!!!!!

252 posts in this topic

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.

      Was there alot of standing water? Headed back up towards that way this weekend...

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
