  1. Hi All, I'm hoping to make a trek out to north Dakota spearing this winter. there will be probably 6 or so of us going so more than we can really hire a guide, plus I don't want to spend 400-500 bucks a guy (adds up when you paying for two) I've heard good things about Sakakawea but it's 180 long not sure where to even start. or is there any other lakes to try. we are looking for action and course hope for a trophy to put on the wall. anyway has anyone been out there and would you be kind enough to help me narrow it down to at least what town to try to get a room at. ...or if anyone knows of any guides that would be willing to work for a consulting fee of some sort. (we will have our own equipment etc..) thanks
  2. Hello all, I'm hopping to get some advise from some of you who are familiar with tracks on atvs. I'm looking at buying a used 2009 Can am 800r that would include tatou 4s tracks as well as wheels on SS rims. my questions are: What are your thoughts on the 09 can ams (good machines)? How hard is it to change between the tracks and tires?(i would want tires for summer use) What are any issues I should expect with the tracks? I've never used them nor do I know anyone who does. Lastly as for as tracks go how does the tatous stack up, did they make many improvements in the last 7 years (I'm Assuming the tracks are 09 as well) Lastly if it was you buying it what would you feel is a fair price? (very good condition under 700 miles) Thanks for any light you can shed Jay
  3. December 4-6 Get to Gator

    All the way home Sam kept grabbing the trophy decoy, and the Kids one and looking them over inch by inch. Those of you that have one you know how hard it is to get a teenager exited but he really has a great time at this event. Thanks for another great weekend!
  4. Get to Gator Roll Call

    I'll bring a couple packs of brats and buns and some sort of dessert.

  9. Winnie GTG Dec. 5-7 let the fun begin

    Sam and I really had a great time, Thanks for inviting us to participate. It was great meeting everyone Friday night and put some faces to screen names. Also a special thanks from Sam for the kids decoys. He didn't spear anything on Saturday. But speared 3 on Sunday 2 of them came in to one of the new ones he was given sat noon.
  10. Best hub style for spearing

    don't want to highjack this thread but thinking of getting one as well. questions to those of you that started with the quickfish then went to the insulated hubs. are they easier to set up/take down, or about the same? Are they darker for spearing? I've noticed there are a handful of non-insulated ones on hsolist but no insulated ones for sale. (tells me people are up-grading)

    hi, so I was trying to find a lake map on line this morning, and confused, are Dixon lake and 3rd river flowage the same? it looks like 3rd river flowage attaches to Winnie and Dixon is a couple miles away. if we are on 3rd river flowage on Winnie, does anyone have a gps address I can punch in my car gps to get to the access Friday afternoon. I was planning on just entering Dixon resort. but now not sure if that's right.

    Finally found a place to stay. We will bring a pack of brats/buns to add to the mix. also some kind of dessert. and a cooler full of beverages. this time I'll leave it in a central location so everyone can help themselves through-out the weekend.

    It's really maroon, but yes actually there was, it was on the "oops" paint rack at home depot!
  14. spear house photos

    here is pic of mine I just built, It's modeled after one that was posted here last winter. it's 4 by 6.5 with the hole in the middle of the house. 4 by 8 would be bigger, but this is a little lighter and I can get it the back of my truck if needed. Made it out of 2 by 2's and 1/4 inch plywood. I just put it on the ice today. didn't get to use it much but think I will really like.

    hey Mwal, sounds good glad you found someone, I may try to find someplace closer or else I will try the same place. MJ, Thanks for the info, we will try to get up there as early as possible on Friday will be early afternoon at the earliest so will have to find you guys on the ice. I have a portable house that son and I can both sit in, so I would sit with him fri/sun. but I'm thinking I may rent one from the resort for Saturday. I've never been there is it a small enough area that I could set up my house near the rentals, and still be able to join the rest for lunch? and do you think the resort will be ok with me doing this? (renting one day using my own the next?)
