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.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
