Spearing the same area multiple times

Recommended Posts

Still learning, so here's a question for you. If you have speared a few pike in one spot, do other pike move into this spot? Can you keep having success in this area? Or should you try moving to another location? Thanks for the input.

fish are going to move all the time! When we take a trip up north and spear for 5 days, we dont move our houses at all. Fish will move in, and if your seeing fish, thats a good thing. There around!

It's been a couple years since I last speared, but we had a really good spot along a steep drop off from an island that we set the house up on year after year. Produced many good fish each year throughout the season. We would move the house about 30 yards once each winter just to get a different view, but 30 yards isn't much, saw some of the same identifiable fish at both spots.

The spear shack finally bit the bullet and instead of building a new one, me and a couple friends went in on a wheel house. I miss spearing a lot though, thinking I'm gonna build me a dark house this summer.

I have a couple extra perm shacks now that I got a hole cut in my wheelhouse. The two I have are just rough dark houses but insulated well and can fit in the back of a truck or trailer with 2 guys lifting pretty easy. Been thinking about selling them pretty cheap if you are interested.

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
    • Borch
      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?
