Muskie entering hole     She came back a while later and was in and out for the last hour of my last sit of the season     Pike sampling a decoy  

I got a DL Smithing spear this weekend. 

Thanks MJ - you too.   I finally got a hole cut yesterday.  No luck while exploring a new lake but at least it got the blood flowing again.   Plus I got to swim the last two Grumpy

You guys should have seen the size of the bees that took after my shack!!! They chewed a hole right through the aluminum siding!!! Perfectly round too...

Not only that, but they did it in both sides of the shack in almost the same spot!!!

So I stuffed a vent cap into it.

I just finished up knurling a spear handle for a guy from Illinois. After I do a little clean up work and a bit of polishing I will post a few pics of it.

Spent the weekend working at the hunting shack & fishing Farm Island, found enough hammer handles to keep us busy. Nothing big though, couple walleyes here and there but nothing too exciting. The bass also eluded me. Amazing to see the trees change this weekend. Every morning the colors seemed to change.

Took a load with the big truck to Idaho Falls, ID this week. Got to drive thru the west side of Yellowstone which is always fun. Sitting in northern Wyoming now waiting to get loaded so I can run home.

Neighbor Guy,

Those bees are amazingly accurate. I to used those same plugs to stop them from colonizing the shack. I also plugged one down low near the heater. THe bee's really make Oxygen exchange a top priority. LMAO At least I never feel dry eyes or get headaches in the shack.

I put those vents in my houses. I don't like how much light they let in so I put one on the inside as well that the vents face up.

My spear shack I started over 2 years ago should hopefully be done next week haha my buddy is finishing it up for me by putting some siding on it. After the winter we had last year I don't even know if I want it now laugh. Also just placed an order for a couple new dekes.

That stinks.

That reminds me to get mine out and have a canvas place to make a new bag for it. They are a nightmare to get in the bag when its real cold out.

I was not a happy person wasted 2 hours of driving, on a positive side I sold my quickfish and my auger today so I get to go shopping and buy new stuff.

Everything was going good today until I found out the piece of rubber roofing I have is 2" to short. I'll have to buy a new roll.

Looks nice MJ and I think I would cut two inches off the roof rather than buy more roofing but that's just me wink

I thought about that. I'm thinking about building a small light one person shack for early season spearing one of these days. I would need some for that anyway I guess. I was just disappointed I didn't get the deer stand done yesterday.

You're going to like it. My only real complaint is I wish the window covers sealed tighter to keep more light out. Windows are velcroed in so I'm going to take them out and have some made out of black material.

He'd have it sealed up so tight I'd pass out and fall in the hole......

Got the new floor built tonight had a bunch of scrap lumber laying around so I was able to make this one for about $10. Picked up some PVC going to try hanging my decoy lines off of that this year instead of the ceiling, should also be able to mount my GoPro on there also. Looks like I'm not the only one who is ready for spearing full-17060-49967-img_0441.jpg

Sorry MJ, no sewing this year...I am working on remodeling our main bathroom. I am planning on getting a FatFish sooner or later, so when that happens I might have to pull out the sewing machine again.

We need the weather to turn a little colder so I can get spearing thoughts going through my head.

I've been doing a little goose hunting and lots of deer stand building. Calling a canvas guy next week to see about getting a bag made for my Fatfish. I'm tired of trying to force it in the bag it came in.

Been working a lot!!! Early start times and long days getting a couple new guys trained in to take the swing and second shifts. Then dealing with construction issues on the weekends. Hard to shoot ducks with the phone in your hand, but it starts ringing about 5am and goes until a little after 10pm 7days/week.

I am ready for the ICE!!! There is no better way to relax than looking down the hole at 8-12' of clear water and fish looking at the decoys wink

      I got up Sunday afternoon. I'm debating dropping my dock in, I want my dock builder/ barge company to see the lean or torque that's on it since they made the "L" permanent. One boat came out of Black Bay when we were fishing. Did you happen to notice the water temp in the bay?
    • SkunkedAgain
      I saw a few boats out in the water but not as many as I expected for a nice weekend. When I left on Sunday night I noticed that your dock was still up, but I think your lights were on. It was tough though to see through the raindrops pelting my face! Fun times on the lake.
    • CigarGuy
      Thanks for the retirement wishes! Spent the first official day putting in a new onboard charger in my boat and doing a little road maintenance with my neighbor. Just sat on the neighbors dock for an hour and got one crappie. Start of retirement feels great!

      My son and I have had an awesome season son far. He tagged out friday, I tagged out yesterday. He also helped a friend this morning with calling, and his Buddy got his first Tom. 
    • Fish Head
      Congrats! I've got another 5 or 6 years to go before retirement. Plan to spend half the year at Vermilion and half in Hawaii. Already saving up for a saltwater fishing boat.

      There are guys on Facebook Market place selling buckets of Smelt right now.  One said "Fresh from Duluth"

      I was able to hit the chain on Saturday and cruised around a bit to see if I could find what the walleye were doing. Appears they should be spawning and did find what I think were a couple females just based on the location I found them.    50° on the river and saw as low as 47° on the main lake.

      I was out 4 different mornings.  Very difficult hunt.  I never saw a Tom.  Usually when we go out we can get the Toms to gobble to at least let us know where they are roosting but this year they wouldn't gobble to a call at all.  Most wouldn't gobble until almost shooting hour and if they did gobble it was on there own.  I didn't really want to hunt season A but I had to because of work.  I think the cold weather must of had something to do with it.

      And just a few days later, I got my first 10inch bluegill of the season.  Same body of water Royce got his from, but clearly a different shaped hen bluegill. As always, trophy size fish get released😁   VID_20210418_110303001~2.mp4
    • gimruis
      First outing this spring turned out fairly successful.  Not consistent action yet but enough to stay interested.  Nothing bigger than 12 inches though.  All were released fully alive to complete the reproductive process.
