HSO 3rd Annual Spearing Outting----Dec 20th (updated 11/20)

212 posts in this topic

The time is getting closer and closer everyday to the hard season! Time to get them protables out and get them ready to roll for another spearing season.

Our 3rd Annual Spearing Outting is going to be held at Maple Lake for the whole day. Family, Kids, whoever wants to come is more then willing to spend a day in the darkhouse!

This is a great event for people that have never done it before. If you dont have any equipment that allows you to get out, im sure there is going to be people there that day that will be able to let you hang out in there house for a day. Last year i believe we ended up with 7 houses there, which was great to cover a lake, and learn from one another about what there doing, vs what you are doing!

Date: Dec 20th

Location: Maple Lake

We can figure out all the other information when it get closer to the date. Im sure we will be doing food again this year, along with a few stories on spearing. Our 4th annual will be later in the season.

Dont miss out!!!!!

I am shooting for it and think I am free. It will be fun to meet those who can make it, and to learn about how other people set things up for spearing.

Spearing folks are among the nicest people I know of to be around, even if we are a bit seclusive at times. I have to admit that a gathering around spearing seems a bit antithetical to the solitude that we all treasure, but I am willing to give it try!

All I can say glen is you got a keeper that is really cool that she's into spearing. I'm trying to get my wife out to watch and get her infected with this addiction but shes not ready yet.

Wish I could come too!

someday.

You’re not the only one who wishes they would change that law.

And with part of my family living in AZ, if they do change it, I hope it is not only restricted to states that allow Minnesotans to darkhouse spear in their states.

I would think it will be a long time before darkhouse spearing is popular in AZ. grin

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
