Darkhouse Pictures 2007-2008 Season!!!!!

Recommended Posts

bassNspear

Well boys and girls, the start is just around the corner, so everyone can place pictures here from and in the spear house. Please make sure that they are clean pictures as we all know that we cant have pictures of fish on the spear.

Please no pictures of fish on the spear.

Look forward to seeing some great photos for the season. Now we just need some ice. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

OH MAN!!! I love it. Do you mind if I steal your picture for my desktop? I need to take this sport back up. Can you guys take pictures just of your spear hole with your sucker and decoy this weekend for me? I just might need to get a dark house license.

Just put our houses out a few days ago...5 inches of ice is "plenty".

Nice picture and a nice sized spearing hole...but my father is very "picky" about his spearing hole and if it wasn't perfectly square and not as big "as the wood", he is not happy. LOL.

I'm the same stubborn way. I've chipped away at the frame for too long, in one case slipping and taking a nice chunk off the house floor. At that point I knew I needed to cool it.

Great picture. Awesome clarity and color. Looks like somebody found the jungle weeds. That bluegill could be snack food or at least get a nice scratch on his sides if he doesn't get out of the way of that snot rocket!

The blugill that you are referring to is actually a big sucker on a harness. I moved him when the snot rocket came in.

How did you take such a clear picture? I have taken a picture like this, but it is never that clear...even though the lake is extremely clear.

Is the house dark inside when the picture is taken?

Also, is that a sucker in the middle of the hole or a sunny? I always use a live sucker and maybe a decoy with the live sucker.

Wow, that's neat. Now I can barely see the line down to the sucker harness by the tines of the spear....How did you take such a neat picture? I get really bad reflection or nothing since it's so dark....

The house has no windows and is very dark. The picture was taken without a flash.

The water wasnt the clearest but it was clear enough to spear in, my camera doesnt take pictures of how it actually looks. I was up by alexandria on this trip. I usually spear around Hutchinson but every lake around their you cant see 2ft down.

Here is a photo from 2007. Speared this nice northern on Lake Andrusia. Last year this photo had to be removed from the northern/muskie photo thread since there was so many emails disapproving that I had speared this fish. I speared another fish the same size the next morning. Slow spearing but worth it when a fish did show up.

My roommate and I are heading out spearing for the first time tomorrow.

Dude... I love the pic! Nice job!

Rules involving our fish pictures have "adapted" a bit since you last posted that photo I believe.

      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.

      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.
    • ANYFISH2
      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!

      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
