$5 Spear House

Recommended Posts

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 got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
    • Try going over to this thread. Rock & Edibles-Agates-Fossils-Artifacts-Mushrooms-Ginseng-Gems-etc. There is some discussion taking place under Morels' 2018 already.
    • Guys and Gals, I have searched high and low and have found none at all this spring.  Anyone have an success.  I am guessing it is too dry.  Will they still pop?  Any advise? "Set the Hook", Flash  
    • Wow, my spots are way behind this year. Had hoped to find a bunch before this coming long weekend for a big family Walleye and Morel fry but have only found 5 small grays so far. Just not seeing the ground cover growing very much yet and have saw no other types of mushrooms which seem to grow first pop up yet. This is a very late year so far.
    • No, shes not but on a paper thin rotted floor your kitty would fall through. I can see why she worried.  I didn't because it wasn't on my side!!
