If you want to take the fish,

don't pass up the good shot when you have it. It may not come back. Wait for the shot you want; then once it is there take it.

Couple of pike that showed up for a photo op this morning. 

Here is a pike I got on Saturday the 20th. 39" 18.4 lbs. She tasted great out of the smoker!

Thanks. The skinny pike is my very first dark house pike. This is kind of my son's gig. He was interested so I helped him get into it. Today I got a turn with the spear I made for him a couple years a

I finally got my spearing clip, just gotta find out how to edit it and post it, I got an 7-8lber at noon today stuck em right in the snout, which is what I aimed for cuz I didnt want the fish to shake loose, guess having lost one to a shake off made me nervous, but now Im 4 fer 4 with my new spear, Ill post pics tomorrow, and hopefully the video, kinda funny cuz I lost my rod for my live decoy in the midst of spearing the fish and then the fish spun and ended up snagging my line n pole so when I pulled the fish outta the water the pole came up too! I have to video of it fallin, my gf swore so Im trying to edit it so I can put it up, or maybe Ill youtube it then give you guys the link!

same fish as in next photo


maybe a 30 incher


maybe a 27 incher


maybe a 33 incher


I felt like seeing some bigger fish, so I moved the spear house to a protected slot lake. I likely won't get the spear wet the entire time I'm on the the lake. Good opportunities for some pics!

Jameson: Outstanding pics. How big do you estimate fish #3 is. She's looks like a brute.

photo 1 is maybe a 30 incher. Photo 2 maybe a 37 incher. photo 3 and 4 are same fish. Photo 4 was taken seconds after photo 3. Maybe a 30 incher. Photo 5 maybe a 27 incher. Photo 6 maybe a 33 incher. Setup in 7 FOW. That decoy sucker is pretty good size. Crappie decoy ain't all that big, maybe 5 inches long.

whats the slot limit?

24"-36" protected

I ain't spearing anything unless I am sure it's 40+ inches. So, like I wrote earlier, it's very doubtful I will be getting the spear wet. Would be happy if ANY of them decided to bite my sucker-on-hook, though.

Thanks for all the comments everyone. I will try to get some more photos soon.

Awesome pics! I don't spear, mostly just like sight-fishing. I'd love to get in on a lake like that, it's been several years since i lived in an area that had pike that size that i could see on a consistant basis.

Found a way to get the spear wet! 30" Right behind the head.


Muskrat took up residence. Had to move the house. Sorry, no pike pics.

Nice pics. The mountains in the background are cool and the pic of jr is awesome. He looks like a happy little guy.

Ps I got an orange hat just like jr's.

      I rented a cabin in June that had the new StarLink (Elon Musk) in it.  Let me tell ya....Lighting!  I was pulling 150 to 200 MB.     4 of us stayed there and zero problems...even during heavy cloud cover.  This is the solution for fast internet up there.

      I don’t know the technical on how ACcess Mn works, but we have it as of this year.  I still have my CC service( which used ATT tower in Frazier but too far away)  as I’m up not up there permanently.  No internet at the cabin before but now there is, plus Wifi calling.  I may ditch my land which will save $.

      I'm wondering if you should try and use long track sled tracks as it maybe a bit tippy, or keep it as wide as you can. Are you may find out you will need a pair of skis out front for better stability? There are a bunch of them on Youtube to look at. Some of them seem more front to back tippy then side to side becuase of being top heavy. But, Im no engineer! 😆 Love the concept! 👍

      I think when your ice fishing a fish finder is your most essential piece of gear it makes a worlds difference to be able to hole hop and find different areas and see fish chasing. In the summer time it is not as essential but it can give you a huge advantage if you know how to use your unit right.
