So here's my 7-8lb, 30 1/2" Northern I got, I speared it in the head where I aimed so It wouldn't have the chance to shake off.

LOL now that is funny laugh not only the pole but the grunt was great oh yeah and the $^##^ #&#& &&$&$# can tell you were having fun. I'm no expert on spearing but I don't think you really need to throw that hard. Nice fish

Need to put the spear in the water before you throw it! you will have alot more luck getting fish without the splash from the spear hitting the water.

Cool Video and Nice looking Fish

Nice fish and laugh vid. No acting there! Typical spearing tho and it just about always seems like something goes in the hole or is in the way for a good shot. One thing is you should try and hit them right behind the head with the center tine so it breaks the spine and takes some of the fight out of them. More practice I guess?

If ya check the vid again the spear was in the water, you can tell by the refraction, it was 4" above the spear head, the splash came from the knot at the end of the spear, wish I could get a better quality upload its perfect on my computer n you can see every little detail.

The language couldnt be helped I didnt even know my gf was recording lol thought she was just takiing pictures like I had the camera set up for! But all in all I found the video exciting and funnier than shoot cuz I could hear myself saying "theres goes my pole, then later "I saved my pole!!"

The grunt is something I just do I think, no matter how light I push the spear, I always do it for some reason.

As for where I hit it, I aimed right at the head, I was worried that a fish that size would shake off because of a past incident where I did hit it right behind the head and it shook off even tho it was a diff spear it still makes me nervous cuz I dont want to end up killing a fish cuz it shakes off n swims away and die. if that makes sense to you guys.

I gotta hammer handle on sunday, so now Im 5/5 with my new spear, My gf had about a 10lber come in for her first fish n she missed I thought she nailed it in the head but when the water clear there was nothing there. I woulda mounted it for if she did get it, just because it woulda been her very first northern n even a fish like that on a wall would be a good talking piece! Still proud of her tho for trying!

Worried about shaking off use a gaf on them to lift them out. They seem to go extra nuts when they break the water. Once they have been pinned on to the spear just short of lifting them out of the water you know it's going home with you.

Hey I used the very same words when I dropped my fish say through the hole last time I went out. I was lucky that it stuck in the upright position and was able to hook the safety rope and pull it back out. I will be putting a larger rope around it for next time. The oem rope doent fit around my hand.

I've had much better luck behind the head/gills. Bounced too many off the skull where there's nothing to hold unless you really drill them. Glad you've been on the mark lately, beats kicking yourself after you miss!

hahaha yeah, I did drill him, when thru between the eyes and nostrils, I kinda like hittin em in the head cuz I know there not coming off, but I have gotten 3/6 behind the head and no struggles what so ever... Guess either way works really, I prefer just being able to bring them up no matter which way I hit um smile

      What's the plan after the deer farms are gone?  I'm all for ganging up on a minority and squashing their rights, but we've still got a real problem to deal with.

      Soon as I can get my car in the yard.  I don't have water though, so temps don't matter.  Even if it's cold and sloppy yet, I can still hang out inside and grill outside.

      Depends on the year and since we are on an island, it really depends on ice and/or when the dock company can drop our dock. Usually early May

      I’m really hoping to make it up there on Saturday. Might try a couple different spots, pending success rate.

      Also depends on if your married or not, or want to stay that way! 😄  At my buddies old place since he had an out house we would just bring water and start using it when we could get the heat up with a fire place and a few elc, heaters as to not die. Then we were good! 😉

      Hello everyone,    I know I'm new to this website, but I've been fishing for a while now. A few years ago I picked up a Black Betty 6061 for ice fishing and I bent the handle trying to put it into a Frabil hard case on an exceptionally cold day (dumb me). I wrote a few emails to 13 Fishing/called 5 times and explained the situation and they told me I would have to pay for my parts. I said that was fine because it was my fault (even though I thought the handle should be a little sturdier).   Flash forward a 2 weeks later and I have my new handle. I took the old handle off and put the new one on, but the retaining screw that holds the washer for the nut in place wouldn't fit. The new handle 13 Fishing sent to me has a screw hole tapped too small. I called 13 and they were not aware of a screw size change. I asked them to send me a screw that would fit the handle and they said okay. 2 Weeks later, no screw. I called them again and explained that I had been over a month without this reel operational and no one had sent anything. I told them that I had a fishing trip coming up in the next two days and they could either overnight the screw to me or send it to the location I was going to be fishing. They said they would send it and it didn't come before the trip, nor did it come after the trip I just came back from.    They either sent me the wrong handle that doesn't fit my old BB, or they changed the dimensions of their design. I'm just trying to get my reel operational and it seems like such an easy thing. I'm probably going to go down to the store and just grab a small screw that will fit, but it seemed too easy for 13 Fishing to send me the part. How should I deal with 13 Fishing now? Has anyone else dealt with this issue before? I really liked 13 Fishing's gear, but if this is what happens when something goes wrong, I may end up turning elsewhere for the $$.

      I always use a dead stick next to a jigging hole.  The water is clear so you can get pretty high off the bottom to bring them in and then lower it to them.  Red hook on the dead stick during the day and anything glow after dark if you want but I use pink.  I usually use fat heads or rainbow with good success.  My go to is a pink and blue rattle spoon or red.  Just off of structure during the day with a nice easy move of 15 feet or so to the top of the structure morning or night.

      Now it sounds like they’re shooting for October. Won’t be possible by fishing opener

      Depends on the year.  Typically early May.   Some years you can get away with earlier....
