$5 Spear House

18 posts in this topic

So i was looking on good old hsolist and found a canvas fish house for sale only $45 a little old but would make a great spear house, all i gotta do is make a bigger hold in the floor. It has a steel frame on the bottom so its heavy enough to hold it down and its folds up pretty nicely to. I met the person yesterday and see theres a heater with it and she said it comes with the house. Well i dont need the heater but wasnt about to turn down the heater. Put it on hsolist last night and sold it for $40 today. So i just bought myself a nice spearhouse for $5, so im really ready to start sparing now, all i need is a decoy.

FYI,

There is a bait shop in St Cloud that is very spearing friendly. It has a large selection of decoys to choose from. I picked up a bear creek there last year. They had some hand carved ones there too. Icesaws and spears too.

From what I understand the posting guidelines do not let me name the exact name of the place. That is about all I can say.

I'm originally from St. Cloud so I know what bait shop he is talking about, I can't seem to remember the name but I will just tell you that if you are at the stop lights on hwy 10, there is a restaurant on the SW corner and behind that restaurnat you will see the bait shop, in fact I think it has an old stop light signal on top of the main entrance door. But if you are sitting at the stop light and look west you should see the bait shop.

You can name the bait shop. Just can't post a link to it.

Cool.

I usually get in trouble after posting... this time I thought I would try to stay out of trouble first.

Yes, it is Stop Light Bait.

They have Duey Decoys there too.

Good Gooood… I’m Goooooood

I have been messing around converting fish houses to spear houses. Picking them up here and there and farting around with some. The wife isn't on to me yet but I think she is going to figure it out pretty soon. eek

I am getting a little collection going here. grin

I was looking at getting an older small pontoon for sturgeon fishing in the spring too, but that deal fell though now… a day late and a dollar short on that one. cry

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
