Web cam is up and running and I am on my way to pick up Elwood.

Elwood, I need the end of an extra spear I brought drilled for a rope.

It is a 5/8" solid shaft.

Get the drill press ready

What another great success on the Get Together. Glad to see that all the spearing FM'ers were coming out to enjoy hanging out with the boys!

The weather was horrible, but we still had a great time. I was sitting in my house with Central Bassman, and we seen 6 fish. Everything that we see was around that 2 lb range. It was great to get out there and see some fish.

Thanks to merkman for cooking up some food for us, and takin the time to get it all ready. I will take care of the food in Feb!

Glad to see that Pink Floyd was able to make it as a new spearing member, and was not only able to see a pike in the water, but win a decoy that Merkman gave away!

All in all it was a great time out on the ice with everyone that was able to make it. I can wait to get out in Feb with you all again.

This outing goes to show you that dark house spearing is still and will always be popular sport, and going to be going strong for many years.

Cya all in Feb!

We missed you out there Sham, and Fishcarver, and Huey.

People were asking about you guys.

Wish you could have made it.

Looks like there is a new orange hat on the block now anyway Huey. Yopauly filled that role real nice!!! :lol:

My photos are uploading right now so I will get them posted as soon as they finish.

I got a good hour of spearing in after everyone took off.

I saw a real nice 6 lber

I was jigging a 12" realistic pike by Bearcreek when this pike came screaming in about a foot and half under the ice. He went from 100mph to 0 in a split second about 1/4 inch away from the decoy and like a flash he went out of the hole deep and to the left. I didn't even have time to touch the spear.

Seeing that pike come screaming in made the trip worthwhile.

It was great to see everyone out there. Good to chat with everyone in person for a change. I am glad everyone liked the chow. Great to see the "new" spearers such as YoPauly have a good time. He saw 2 rockets and hopefully he is speared now.

All in all it was a great time.

I crawled back home in 4X4 and 40 mph all the way but it was worth it!

I’m glad every one had a good time. Too bad for the crappy weather tho. Boy the stuff on grill sure looks tasty.

yeah it was a fun time out there, just too bad the northerns weren't any bigger. Took my little brother with me and we ended up seeing 4 northers. He has never been with me spearing so this was his first time. He had a blast watching the snakes pound the chub. I even set him up with a dare devil on his rod and had him jig that. No longer than getting the lure level with the decoys a 2 lber came and smashed it. If i didn't grab my brother he would've probly fell in from just shear surprise. Now if that were in bns's spear house there would be no doubt that he would've fallen in for how big of hole that he has in that thing.

But all in all it was a great time being out there and im looking forward to feb.

Sounds like a fun day. We were at our daughter's cross country ski meet in Dresser, WI all day which was fun too.

Was anyone else out in that wind on Sunday? I stuck it out from 8-1 and ended up seeing several nice pike and an absolutely huge carp. The pike were decoy shy with that high pressure building in.

That is another fun part of the get to gator.

You get to see others carving their holes and you soon realize you are not the only out of shape person out there carving holes. lol

10 feet around the fish hole at 13.5” of ice gets you warmed up in a hurry!!

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
