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.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      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
