Does anyone have....

3 posts in this topic

a link or something that would be a good tutorial on how to build a spear? I'm looking for design tips, process tips, that sort of thing.

I figure building my own is a good way to earn my way into the sport.. smile.gif

there is alot of different websites that you can go and look this stuff up. The thing that you have to understand that its something that takes alot of work and tech inorder to build a solid spear.

I have tried it a few times, but yet everytime itried to do it, i would get T.O. becuase it would never turn out like i would like it to.

Like i said, you can find information on this stuff all over the net, just a matter of how you want to build it.

Go and have a talk with an old time blacksmith in a small up-north town. They've probably made several and can tell you all you need to know. I have built a couple myself and the main thing is to use tines with good stiffness or temper to them. You do not want them to bend. Some old timers used fork teeth or push rods. The handle is weighted as to your preference.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
