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

      so i booked my first trip to mille lacs for a week on the southern portion in september for my pike fishing trip with my wife and dog. we agreed that we would try smaller lakes in the future and we actually went bigger!! 😀🙄 man that's a big (almost) round lake. i'm not asking for secret spots, but a push in the right direction please. i will look at my navionics this week and see how it looks but do i just go out and find some points or maybe work the backs of the bays? shallow or deep in mid september? i would think that first i would need to find some weeds. i always think weeds and pike. from looking at satellite pics it's hard for me to tell weeds or any other type of structure. any of your suggestions would really be helpful.  i know it's not rocket science to catch pike but any time that I could save looking would be a great help. you have all been really kind. thank you all! chris

      Tale of two days this last weekend. On Saturday, couldn't pull a fish out of the lake. On Sunday, had a four fish walleye limit by 11am, with a bonus perch as well.   Graphed fish on Saturday, just couldn't get 'em to move. On Sunday, went back and no fish to be found. Decided to get out of my comfort zone, so i started working spots that i hadn't been to in two years or more. 2nd spot i tried had 'em stacked. Not huge, but consistent 12-15". Good size to keep.   My take-away was get out and try some spots you haven't been to in a while.

      The sweltering heat, high humidity values, and intermittent thunderstorms have certainly provided some challenges for anglers but even as we enter the dogdays of summer the fish are still on the chow! As we all know there is never any shortage of action when one sets out to target Bass. Smallmouth Bass can be found along the deep weed lines, rocks, and sunken humps. Try using a Drop-Shot Rig tipped with a Leech. Largemouth on the other hand can be found working the weeds inside and outside the lines using Tubes, Spinner Baits, and Carolina Rigs. In the early morning, try working docks, shoreline structure and swimming platforms next to sharp drop-offs. Of course, usually by this time of year we have shifted our focus to chasing Large Slab Crappies. The weed beds are holding large numbers of both Crappies and Sunfish. Pay especially close attention to the cabbage along deeper drop-offs. Slip-Bobbers using live bait or plastics, Small Swim Baits, Spinners, Beetle Spins are all working well, these buggers have been hungry!! The Walleye bite is also one that has yet to relinquish to the torrid, humid conditions. A lot of techniques have still been producing good numbers of fish. Anything from pulling Spinners in the weeds, Lindy Rigs, Slip-Bobbers, jigs tipped with Leeches, Crawlers or Chubs… Cranks, Shiver Minnows and the list goes on!! It really is Dealer’s Choice it seems, trolling Cranks on the mid-lake flats has been best toward the evening hours until after dark, Spinners have been enticing them during the mid-day, as well as jigging raps for the walleye found out over the deep structure. -Cheers!

      I live just off the Rum near walbo. Water high deer flies horrible. Yes good smallie and walleye when water down to normal. To high right now in my opinion.

      I wonder if there is any connection to the fact that when the dnr guys pull their seine on my beach they get 150 or so nice perch? Run up to 4 or 5 inches.   They seine at a number of places around the lake 4 times every July and have been for many years.   This is way above what I can remember as typical.  And that is without the young of the year which are still too little to show up much.

      I fished last Tuesday and Wednesday. Caught 5 walleyes in Lower WF on lindy and leach. 4 of the fish were caught within an hour on Tuesday early evening. Mornings were slow both days. Heading up again on Monday for a few days. Hopefully weather will stay stable.
