Johnson Spears

8 posts in this topic

Did anyone see this guy's spears at the St.Paul Ice Show?

They were quite pretty sweet.

Anyhow, I thought I grabbed the guys card/pamphlet, but it must have fallen out of my overloaded bag of unnecessary-but-fun ice fishing gizmos.

If anyone has contact info and could forward it, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

You could check the HSOforum for the Ice Show. Sometimes they have a vendor's list.

Well, I found the Johnson Spears pamphlet buried in with all the other fun stuff from the ice show.

Here's a photo of the pamphlet interior:

His spears are works of art. Gorgeous. If you spear a trophy that you want to mount, you can remove the tines and slip them out (non-barbed end) so you don't further damage the fish.

I don't even spear (yet) and I want one of these spears. Heck, they might be too purdy to use!

No HSOforum listed, just an e-mail address: johnsonspears @ yahoo (dot) com if yer interested.

Yes he had wood handle and stainless handles. They are a little spendy at $400+. Out of my league but very nice.

    • that would be samanthasquatch 
    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
