My sons first Northern

8 posts in this topic

This is my sons first northern spearing! He's 10 this year and it was way past due to get him one. He missed four before finally connecting with this nice 4 pounder. Since that day he has drug ME out of the house several times to go spearing. Another cool thing is that is the same spear that I used (24 years ago) to spear my first fish. It's really light and easy for kids to throw.

that is awesome. The best part about it, you have a new person that is going to be hooked into this sport. We took a guy up north with us this year that never speared, and he is hooked as well. Siad that he was going to do this all the time.

Thats awesome. I hope that you keep taking them out more and more, to teach the great sport of spearing to one another.

Good job Tritonman! Tell your son that we are all impressed that he stuck one at 10! Glad to see you're passing the tradition down to the next generation...

Good Luck!

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
