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.

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
