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.)

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
