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.

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
