For Laska and others who have built a spearhouse ?

11 posts in this topic

Just looking for some ideas as to what has worked for you in your new house and what hasn't. Is there anything that once you finished the house wished you would have incorporated into it.

I am planning on redoig my 4' x '4 house into a 4' x 8' house starting this weekend.

All ideas welcome and please include must haves or a wish list.

Thanks,

i have a 4x6 i have to step over the hole to get to the door. my next one will have the door on the side instead of the end.

I can see where that might cause a problem.

I kinda want to make the hole fairly large and have enough room around it in case my family wants to go and watch or spear.

I was thinking a rattle reel mounted to the ceiling or wall would work great.

i would suggest putting the rattle reel on the side by your head so you dont have to reach over the hole to move it up or down. just use cup hooks or something of that nature to route the line.

I'm also going to mount a video camera holder directly over the hole. In the house I currently have I mounted the one I take bowhunting that attaches to a tree. Worked pretty good.

Tie the camera off!!!

Preferably with a rope shorter than the distance from the mount to the water. laugh

Water and video cameras for that matter any camera do not mix well together.

I gotta underwater camera, put it in the other hole and have my video camera feed into the monitor, so everything is water tight for the most part.

That's a good idea as well. Do you have any action shots on video. I'll have to try that as well. Get the shot from inside and the underwater action shot.

Last winter I made a spearing tape. Turned out pretty good for my first one.

    •   Stayed home for the 4th this year, was amazed how quiet the cities seemed to be. "Is everybody up north?"
    •   I sure like the sites your old campground kept open for weekenders. Best spots in the campground if you ask me.    
    • so leech, does your campground have festivities functions for there permy site people? ours had a big fish fry on the fourth with a little parade. they do a golfing event to. i heard they finally got some decent playground equipment for kids. there theory was theres fishing. they used to do a pot luck with a theme german, mexican..bleah blah.....but that required work and planning from the owners. took away from the beer drinking! 
    •   I have noticed that trend at seasonal campgrounds too. 20 some years ago when we started camping seasonal sites used to be full of folks 60+ but now it seems that there are a lot of young families in these sites.    The other trend I noticed is that lot rental prices have gone through the roof since then. 
    •   Well in the 12 years we have been at this campground it went from mostly old folks where if your Walker wheel was squeaking someone would run out with a can of WD-40 to stop the noise! Now a lot of young families with kids. Most of the year it's not to bad, but the Holidays can get a little crazy with the golf carts and beer flowing!   I don't let folks bother me much, I have two young grandsons so their in the mix!
    • I have definitely come to the conclusion that on those big 3 day holiday weekends its way more quiet and peaceful if i stay put at home.................even up north. hey i can have a fire and have cocktails at home too!!!!!!! the weekends to go are weekends prior to and after them big weekends!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Pretty much the same on enforcing some of the rules. The 4th was a Zoo and I'm sure the managers head was spinning trying to keep track of who all the kids running belonged too!
    • well it didnt help our family has a cabin up in itasca county and have had it since 1965. the camper took time away from there. granted the camper was 30 minutes from home the cabin 3 1/2 hours but there is agood city block of woods between us and the neighbor.............and we have noone on the other side. i dont mind a little socoilizing but that peace and quiet is right up my ally.   so leech does your park charge extra for additional company not your immediate family? the campground we were at did, but they didnt enforce it fairly. some were forced some got to slide. oh and there were alot of other issues i got fed up with!!!!!!!
    • No ones making fun leech. Just made a statement. I've never seen one like that before. I've seen the hand ones curved, but not the powered one. Guess it could be like the hand one. I could be wrong. Be interested to see if they sold one like that, or someone put a power head on it. I'll let you take over now.
