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!

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
