I've never seen a decent spear (one that I'd own) at any store. The best ones are hand made in very limited quantities. They aren't exactly cheap either. But then what quality product is? Check with a local blacksmith. If they don't make them, they probably know of someone who does. Good luck in your search.

check sportsmens warehouse, they cost about $90 bucks and i think there the best spear available in a store setting. im sure someone can make a better one. i bought 2 of them for me and my wife and really like it. and i have a lot of hours in a spear house.

depending on where you live, cabin fever has some great spears out there as well. There is not alot out there for a customer to buy on the market. like they all said, you have toget them custom made.

How about some pictures of the spears you have? I’m temporarily out now do to a screw frown.gif up where I get my material. The last ones went to a dealer in MI. Some of them he puts a wooden grip on the end. For big fish you need a high quality spear. Also a cheap spare wouldn’t hurt. The way the weather forecast looks you should have time to shop around

I was a Scheels in St. Cloud last week and they had several different spears for about $150-$160. I don't know anything about spears, but they looked nice grin.gif

Yes a Fish's Sporting Toys would finish off that collection really nice, My favorite one is the gray one, it used to be a two piece that would come apart at the head of the spear, I had a buddy weld just enough to keep if from coming off, it is light enough where I can throw angle shots fairly well if they don't come in all the way, then I bring them up with the black one on the far left, two spears in the house at all times.

Ah yes, spears! Fun to have nice equipment!! Sometimes, when I'm not fishing, I build a few. These are a few of them, my favorites are in my spear houses. Guess I don't use many of them, just have fun making them. Biggest problem is fish usually are very tough to remove. A couple of these are impossible to get out without literally cutting the fish in half. Overkill?? [image]DSCN1098.jpg[/image]

My two cents:

The ideal spear should have plenty of weight with longer tines to fully penetrate and pin down a large pike. Barbs should be aggressive. Some would say this is overkill on hammer handles and snakes but when a gator cruises in, these larger spears are more ethical. I would agree you rarely see good "storebought" spears although Dunham's in Duluth sells an OK spear. (I wouldn't recommend angle shots - to risky for a bad hit.)

      I often run into rusty crayfish when I'm in the boundary waters.  I tried to dig up some solid info on them but are they safe to eat? same as southern crayfish i wonder?  Suck the heads and everything?  It'd be a nice side for a pan full of fish in the BWCA.

      Maybe that's my problem, I'm not trying shallow enough.  Good report and hopefully I'll get a good report after my four day fishing outing this weekend.  Hoping accesses stay safe enough.  Wednesday night around 22-23:00 is supposed to start freezing and other then a few hours on Thursday and a few hours during the day on Monday we will be below freezing the next 10 days.  I just hope as its freezing people are not out there rutting up the ice and it can freeze smooth for safer travels.    BB did you do better with minnows/spoons/jigs/wax worms?
