I am going to build a new hard sided one. I will leave that one on the lake that I did most of my spearing last year. Then I still have my portable if I want to go somewhere else.

If you got time look for one on a garage sale or auction you would be amazed at what you can find. The one that i have my uncle picked it up in the cites for $50 buck a nice little 4x6 canvas one. I'm hoping to build a 6x10 perm with two holes to take my kids with. Had many a good times with my granpa in a two hole house.

Check out Canvas Craft. They make awesome spear houses that are very dark and will last a very long time.

Anyone thinking of getting a new house or rebuilding there house for next years spearing season!!

I picked up a new (to me) 8 X 8 X 8 portable clamm sleeper and I am in the process of converting it to a 2 hole portable spear house.

I am sewing a bunch of moving blankets together to make an insulated cover for it.

I will open up the holes in diagonal corners so there will be two 2 ft X 3 ft spearing holes.

I was thinking of selling the 4X6 canvas portable but now I am thinking I will leave it out on my main spearing lake.

The other option (if I could sell both of those houses) would be to use the money I get out of those to put against the cost of a new 8 X 8 insulated canvas craft.

    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some.
