Anyone have a small perm spear house they wanna sell????

Recommended Posts

Might be in the market for a small (4'x5' or 6') spearhouse if anyone has one the want to sell. Don't need a heater or anything special-

I'll build a good one next year, but if I can get something decent for not a ton of cash I'd be interested.

I want somethign I can load onto a trailer myself.

Thanks!

michael

Sparcebag, do you know of any good spearing lakes in the willmar area? I understand if you don't want to share, but I figure it doesn't hurt to ask.

I have a 4x8 with hard ends 3 12" fishing holes and 1 spear hole. It could use a darker tarp, but it is a nice house. jeff (dot) pitzen (at) inbox (dot) com

I'm in the North metro. $60? I used it as a permanent and had a darker tarp on it but somebody stole it. I have a sweing machine. I could probably sew up another tarp if somebody has fabric and wants the house. I think it takes about 34' or 36' of 60" fabric

I just took the pictures this weekend, so that is exactly the condition it is in. The base is all Green treated, so it's a bit heavy, but well built. I'll take more if someone wants it REALLY bad :-) Really, $60 is what I paid for it, and I used it one season after modifying it for spearing. I would just like my money back out of it. the tarp I sewed up for it the first time was about $30 I think. I bought the fabric from a Mill end Textiles near my house.

I am cleaning out the garage so the wife can get her car in... she's had enough scraping windshields i guess. I have other misc. stuff, but I should probably post in the correct area so I don't make the Admins mad... they can be mean :-)

I'd consider delivering to a lake within 45 minutes of the north metro on a weekend morning in exchange for a tip on a clear spot with some hungry pike to spear for the morning. Basically, I meet you at the landing, you point me in the direction. I'll even pull the house out with an ATV for you... I try to never spear the same lake more than once or twice a season, but this year all my lakes seem to be awefully murky.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • 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.
