Last Weekend For Spearing

7 posts in this topic

Well everyone, this sunday is the last weekend of the year for spearing. For myself, it has been a year to remember. From the time we started back in Dec, to now, it has been a great year for myself.

I was able to get alot of trips in this year all around the state of minnesota. Saw tons of fish and had great luck.

Was about the take alot of people out this year that have never be able to take the time to spear. That is something that i strive on, is to be able to get people out that have never tried it, or dont have the time or gear to do it.

It has been a great winter here on FM for spearing fisherman. Thanks to everyone for all there tips they gave up to others that were looking for help. Been a great year. Enjoy the last weekend, and pack everythign up, and get it all ready for next winter, cuase i will be smile.gifcool.gif

      I have had good luck with a #4 red hook. About 5-6' of 10lb mono and tie the hook directly to the line. Hook the minnow along the back.

      Fished Owasso last summer for the first time since the winter kill, caught one bass in 4 hours. My wife was fishing for pan fish and didn't get a nibble. You might want to look for another lake. CW

      I use about a 6' leader of 10lb flouro tied to my main line with a small barrel swivel. As far as hooks go I don't use just one. I prefer a treble of some sort, usually a small glow spoon. If it's a single hook I lean towards bigger is better, but also in glow. Set it up at your desired depth and don't just forget about it. Check it, move it, check it, move it. You can cover a good amount of water if you aren't lazy about it. Also I use just a simple bobber tie for my depth marker instead of those little bobbers. No real reason why that's just what I'm used to. Good luck, half the fun is learning what works best for you.

      Hey everyone, picked up a frabil insulated tip up last weekend and I want to use it for a set line for walleyes when I want to set up another line in different depths. So I put about 100 years of 20 pound braid tip up line on it. My question is what do I use for my leader? I've herd mono and flouro work good but I don't know which is best? And as far as hooks go what to you guys use? Single red hook? Treble? Sure set? Thanks!
