Amish made spear house

13 posts in this topic

I'm looking to buy an Amish made 4x6 or 4x8 collapsible spear house. Can anyone give me a lead on where I can pick one up somewhere between St. Cloud and Brainerd? I was planning on picking one up from Fleet Supply in Long Prairie but they only have the flip over style houses.

Never heard of a amish spear house either are you just looking for a standard fold up canvas house like this?  If so c list is filled with them or you could make your own you could do it in a day.  Never seen any in stores.

Fleet supply in little falls might have them. I have seen some Amish houses there in the past, I don't remember if they were just the flip over ones or not.

For $300 I would sell you the one I made haha.  Honestly if you can find the canvas you could build one for $300 or less fairly easily, the way I built mine was a bit overkill and I think came in around $275 I found a new place for cheap canvas if I ever build one again could probably do it closer to $200

TDH there is a amish man that sells that style of spear house N of Sauk center. He's  right on Stearns number 11 N of Sauk. Its a Little white house probably half way between Sauk and N end of lake Osakis.  Drive by his place a lot when heading to N end to fish. Nice houses I have looked at them well built like all there stuff! also does 1 and 2 man traps. Believe he has a sign in front of his house saying fish houses for sale.

I guess I should have played more attention to the previous post before I submitted mine.:)

Thanks guys. $470 is awful pricey even for Fleet Supply. I was thinking 375-400. I can build two myself for that price. Got a couple weeks before we will have spearable ice so I guess I could throw one together.

    • Update   I was able to get an extension kit from Tim's Outboard! Couldn't believe it, I checked all over the internet and local shops and NOBODY had the right one for my motor, but Tim's was able to dig one up. It was a great price too, much less than I expected to pay. They shipped it out to me and I'll be installing it on Sunday. Thanks to swamptiger for the suggestion!
    •    Whether, for examples, it's the Trumper's silence, and sometimes support of, his proposed stimulus spending after opposing BHO's, or war protesters largely absent while BHO intervenes in the Middle East after 6 years of massive protest marches when GWB did, or this story, I guess it's up to the observer to decide how much of this so called outrage you've seen in the last several decades has been really based on true principles or just party politics. The press has promised to scrutinize Trump. Great. I expect that. The problem is they've lost their credibility with the rabble so the rabble are left with trying to figure out which institution is telling the truth or pulling our legs   I suppose the one positive to come from the Trump presidency is the left will now become concerned with things like fiscal responsibility, Executive Branch overreach, and interventionism in the Middle East. Not that I wouldn't welcome their  conversions once again to the aforementioned issues after taking a hiatus the last 8 years. But, better late than never, I guess

      24 Feb 2017 at 10:44 ET                        CPAC attendees wave Russian flags with the word "TRUMP" written on the front.   Staffers at CPAC quickly scrambled to confiscate Russian flags with the word “TRUMP” on the front that were being waved by attendees during President Donald Trump’s speech on Friday. The trouble began when some attendees took out pro-Trump flags to wave during the president’s speech that also happened to have the same white-blue-and-red striped pattern as Russian’s official flag.
