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

15 posts in this topic

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!

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.

    • Butt the 2 sheets tigh and leave the gap against the side walls of the boat where it will be less noticeable and get no foot traffic . A thin strip of aluminum riveted or screwed on the underneath side of the plywood helps to hold the seam tight
    • two bowls of that will send you to heaven!!
    • 10 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY early this morning. Can’t sleep so I got up and made a breakfast and rolled myself into the den to look at my mess. I am in the middle of a computer upgrade when my new addition decided to die on me. Not a new computer but the daughters old one which when running is ten times the old junker that I have been running. We have narrowed it done to the power supply but I am going to have my x son in law take a look before we do anything. If my den is not all ready crowded enough with a cluttered desk and tobacco out to roll some cigars and the trays of flowers under the grow lights there is just enough room for me and my chair.   So I hitched a ride yesterday afternoon to the Lodge with my neighbor Chuck. Place was quiet so I was actually working going over sales the last week and plotting sales when we had games on the new TV and sales are up. We will have it paid for here shortly and it might even make us money this summer if the Twins can put any kind of a season together. So I am at the bar and a older gent walks in that looks vaguely familiar. Looks the place over then takes a seat on a stool in front of me "HIYA" he says and I return the greeting. "Where are the dogs" he asks. I sit back in my stool and ask "You mean Bud and Barney?" He nods his head yes and says "It has been awhile since I have been here but I do remember being greeted by two big brown dogs" " They both passed a few years ago." I said. He nodded his head and said "Sorry for your loss" and we both just sat for awhile thinking of old dogs.   "My name is Luis" and he put out his hand which I shook. "Got a place on the end of the lake and this is a long drive to get here but I decided to make the drive today" "Welcome to the Lodge Luis" I said then I yelled out "Duncan" and Duncan got up from the couch in the office and came out to the main room. "Say hi to Luis" Duncan then came around to Luis, sat down and stuck out his paw to be shook. Luis chuckled some and shook Duncan’s paw and looked back at me and said "I figured you would not be dog less" Some petting and a few good rubs and the two of them were now long loss friends. Duncan came around the bar and laid down on his rug by the cooler.   "So what can I get ya Luis?" Luis looked at the back wall and said "You know it looks like a beer day, How about a Hamms?" So I poured him one and a shortly for myself and went into my bartender mode. "You have a dog Luis?" I asked. Luis wiped his mouth with his sleeve and smacked his lips. "I don’t but my wife does. "What kind ?" I asked and Luis told me he does not remember, it was expensive though and it is retired. "Retired, I asked, How old is it?" Luis taking another sip of his beer said "Two"   "How can it be retired already" I asked. Luis looking into his beer glass said "Well the wife carries it everywhere, dresses it up in spendy dog clothes, It fits inside her purse and she takes it shopping claming it is her companion, I thought I was her companion" Luis held out his glass for a refill and I poured him another. We spent some time talking about hunting dogs and big house dogs and dogs that never see the inside of a purse. I sat on my stool behind the bar with Duncan’s paw resting on my foot, I guess it aint all that bad here at Lake Iwanttobethere
    •     Sounds like Trump wants to run it like the DNC and the GOP run the debates, only minus the DNC...      
    •     Yes, that's what I was thinking.....    
    •   Rush was getting the pills from multiple doctors and off the street, which is punishable by up to 5 years in prison..  But, of course, he had the financial means to avoid prison, whereas the average Joe does not.   Ending the war on drugs means getting the federal government less involved with drug abuse, since they have failed miserably at the job.   States like Arizona and those going ahead with legalizing marijuana as a first step are taking the lead, and eventually the feds will have to step aside.   http://substanceabuse.az.gov/substance-abuse/rethink-rx
