Spearhouse building plans?

Recommended Posts

badfish

Anyone got some straight forward building plans for a spearhouse? I would like to build one this year and maybe get it out before the end of the season hopefully. My budget is around a thousand dollars

Pretty big budget for a spearhouse. Mine was pretty easy to build, not much to it. And i did it for alot cheaper than that.

Should only cost a couple hundred bucks. I build mine 4x5 with a 24"x30" hole in one corner. Nice and light can throw it in and out of the pickup myself no problem. Can try and send a pic if youd like.

Badfish,

This link might help. So far the house is working out great. The whole thing probably only cost a few hundred dollars. You would be able to put something together in a day or two in your garage.

Put in the braces anywhere there is a corner. It really makes it sturdy. I may change the floor configuration on this house or my next house, and sacrifice a little hole size so that I can have the heater in front of me. I like the idea of using a small wood stove like spearhead does.

Check Les Kouba's "Darkhouse Spearing" print for layout.

Elwood has built some really nice houses and has a link on here as well. If you get something built try and put up some pictures for us to get some more ideas.

      yea I keep thinking of getting a different motor but runs good. its a 40 Johnson. I am happy with the boat itself and don't plan on a different one either.

      There are good panfish, both above and below Pillager dam. in Lake Placid, As the water warms, look for the milfoil beds on the north side of the river to establish itself.  If the edges as well as the deeper water adjacent to the weeds.  I like to fan cast a split shot rig vs. a bobber set up. Below the dam, in summer panfish can be caught directly below the dam as well as near Cty 1 Bridge and along most of the inside turns of the river east of there. There are some nice sized panfish in the system, please let the bigger ones back.

      Anyone ever fish this lake before? Looks like it could be a good early season lake. Where exactly is the access? Is it a marked road? Pay box or do I have to go to the house and bother the guy? Appears the river might be too high to fish next weekend, so it’d be nice to find a little solitude on a nearby lake over the holiday weekend.

      I was the one with the 26-1/2" fish yesterday that weighed 5.15 #s. Was a skinny spawned out walleye!  Catch her again in 2/3 weeks and she will be 6/7 lbs for sure! 
    • JerkinLips
      I'm sure that the 5.15 pound walleye was a skinny 26" fish.  The regulations book lists a 20" at 2.7 pounds and a 26" at 6.2 pounds.

      Believe it or not it's a 1993 1660 ProV with a 2 stroke Pro 60 Yamaha. Still runs like a champ. I'm starting to get to the age that it doesn't pay to get a new one. It's always stored in the garage unless we're on a trip.

      Must have been a tough day of fishing with a couple hundred good fishermen catching only an handful of fish over 5#.   I'm puzzled by the fish weighing 5.15# and and 5.81#.  Seems too heavy for a 20" fish and too light for a 26" fish.  The chart I use suggests a 20" walleye weighs 3.12# and a 26" walleye weighs 7.18#.  Of course there is huge variation around this prediction chart.  Wonder if these were these long skinny fish or short chunky fish?   Thanks for posting the results bb and congrats on 10th place.
