  1. Going to South Dakota this weekend. What depth should you look for perch in, or just look for the transiston? I plan on drilling a lot of holes not afraid to work for them. Will the perch bite during the day or is it more of a prime time bite? If someone wants to pm me that would be great. Thamk you.

    I have spears that look like the dillo. I'm pretty sure I'll be spearing slot of 10' depth. I'll try the dillo spears and see what happens. Can a person add weight to a spear.

    What is the weight of a normal spear ? Or what is the weight of a heavy spear?

    What makes s spear good? What makes the schooly spear so wanted?
  5. What kind of structure do you guys look for to spear on. I have found one lake I want to spear the sand grass ends at 9-11' I try to find that and set up there which is a little deep. Inside that weed line is a gravel sand mix and it gets shallower 6' will northerns go on the sand or do they stay more toward that weed line at 9-11'. I've really been trying to find tall weeds but that's not happening. Just wondering what you guys think. Thank you

    Got this 36". This morning. I thought and wish it was bigger. Or it would still be swimming. Came in smoked the decoy. I speared it not good I ran out of rope buddy stuck it knocked my spear out. He only had one tine in it. Got off in the hole. I stuck it again pretty good he put his back in for good measure. Wow. I'm hooked it was fun. My goal is to get more 24-28" let the nice ones swim.

    I have another spot. That's shallower have not tried I think will be good. There is a bunch of houses around the area. I looked on a map found this spot on a 6000 acre lake and no one for a few hundred yards. That's the fishing I like.

    Started spearing 5 days ago. Finally got on a spot with some northern. Missed the first one got him the second time. Ended up with 3 24-28". I was in 12' any tips for spearing that deep. It was fun.

    Here is what I have been keeping track of for mileage a lot of this is cruising at 60 for a half hour or more. When I listen to you guys talk I get really disappointed.

    I would like to do my crawl space right now the local menards has them on sale for quite a bit off.

    Maybe there is nothing to worry about. But when I get out set the cruise at under 65 mph and reset the instant mileage, I thought I would still get better than 15 after 2 or 3 hours of driving. I don't really buy into the winter fuel gives less mpg either. I think the drop in mileage is due to warm up or extended idle running into a store. Also my truck lets me pick the amount of time my truck can warm up and that is set at five minutes. I am very jealous of some of the numbers you guys are claiming. I could almost care less on the mileage I get on short runs but 20 would be nice just cruising.

    Has anyone ever used one of these sets. Are they any good? Was it easy to use ? Thanks.

    If the truck got what it said it is supposed to I would be alright with that but it's far less. I don't drive a focus because it's hard to put fit big parts in there. Bought the truck to have for a few years but when my 1 tons with the 6.7 get better mileage. Not very happy.
