Best Place to Purchase Black Canvas

Recommended Posts

moose_bay_traders

I have been watching this post all season long and have been quite up until now. I sold all of my spearing items a couple of years ago and have been ice fishing only, however I have been motivated to chase mean green again. I am planning on building a 4x8 and was wondering the best place to purchase black canvas material for the house. I am in the saint michael area. Thanks for perking my intrest again. I think my son will enjoy it also-he loves to sit in the blind with me while bowhunting.

I would contact Canvas Craft in Anoka. The canvas they use for their houses seems to be very good. I have been spearing out of one of their 4X8s for several years now and the material is still like new. They also put together a top notch spear house that is complete. All you have to do is cut the hole in the floor.

I had a northlander years ago and it was a great house. I sold it to purchase a pull over. Does canvas craft sell bulk canvas? How big is the hole in your house? I was thinking about getting one of there kits but was'nt sure that 4' wide would be large enough. I like to have a little dancing room for the victory fish dance and enough room for heater,coffee pot,ice rods,etc.

The hole I am spearing out of is almost 4 feet wide and 3 feet deep. It is almost half the floor space. I left about 10" at my feet so that my chair is on the other 4X4 section of the floor and my feet are resting right at the opening for the hole. I have speared out of the this house with another person and our two boys when they were younger. It is perfect for one person with plenty of rooom for all you mentioned. Not sure if they sell the bulk or not, but it wouldn't hurt to call.

Moose Bay - The Rogers store is right by you if you are in St. Michael! You gotta stop by and see their product. Top notch stuff. I'm sure Bass-N-Spear will chime in, as he has a Canvas Craft house and dealt with their staff. He told me on the phone about the great work they do and his pictures only tell half the story. Actually, for anyone interested in Canvas Craft and/or Spearing, come out to the Get-2-Gator on Big Lake on Sunday and sit in his house for a while. Super warm, pitch black...his baby was meant to spear!

If you buy a packaged house or just a skin, you can't go wrong with canvas craft.

I would give matt a call at cavas craft and see what they can do for you. The guys there are amazing to work with, and take care of there customers. Matt works out at the Rogers store, and i know he will help you out. Great product as well that you will be very happy with.

I am going down on Friday to check out there houses. I kick myself for selling that house way back when. I have been thinking about the 5x8 so I can cut a spearing hole on both sides of the house. Anyone using the 5x8 size? Should I spend the extra $40 and get the 6x8?

I have the 6x8 Canvas Craft. The space is awesome. I would never want to go down to a smaller house. If you have 40.00 to go up. i would highly recommand it.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
