Spearing on Shields

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone spear pike on Shields or know of any good spots to spear, or is the water clarity not good enough. I enjoy spearing very much but I have had poor luck the last few years and would like to try Shields for some pike on Sunday or monday. I mostly spear on Rays lakes in elysian and clear in Waseca. I have never been to Shields in the winter, but I have heard that there are good numbers of pike so I am ancious for any help and please have a safe and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!GOOD FISHIN!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't know of any spearing houses on Shields, although I'm sure someone will post here letting you know about where they usually go. But,just up the road to the ESE is LakeMazaska, & there are usually about 5-10 spear-shacks just North of Bullrush Bay. They are usually accessed by taking the gravel road by Hirdler Park(just off Hwy 21,to the North), but go straight ahead, instead of turning into the park. About a 1/4 mile just after the road goes down a

slight hill. look to your right. The property owner, in the past, has let people park there. This may have

changed , as some &$%*?!!'s have decided to leave their trash there too often. But, hopefully you can find

access there, should you choose to try the lake.

Good Luck!

Most people usually set up for spearing to the south of Heron island.I've been spending time on German and don't have any current info on Sheilds. I know it was good in that area last year.

      I'm wondering the same thing!  Low temps have been dropping below freezing and in shallow water that temp has to drop multiple degrees in a night.  I'm wondering if they went back to the breaks and are waiting again?

      Public water is the Surface of the Water, not the land beneath it.  So even if you can access the river through an easement the actual land that youre standing on could be private property. Everything on the DNR Website says "Surface of Water" in the trespassing section.  I agree this is unfortunate,  but as usual, the 3 drunk morons that don't care ruin it for the 1000 that do..... standard procedure these days.  1 idiot doesn't clean his boat, and wrecks a lake for thousands of people.
