Crazy Day In Darkhouse

Recommended Posts

I was out all day today. It was a weird day becuase i was worried that the fish were not going ot be moving that the temp went from 40 to 8 within 24 hrs.

I was out on a lake today that was so clear i could have been in 25 feet of water, and been able to spear fish all day long. I really didnt see alot of pike today, but the pike that i did see where monsters.

I took a 24 and a 35. Grandparents wanted to have some fish to be picked. I saw 8 fish all day.

I had about a 24 incher that came threw today when there was a sunfish in the whole, and that pike never even looked at the live or fake decoy, just came in a smoked the sunfish. It was amazing to see it.

Going to try and get out again tommorrow.

yeah i was out yesterday 8 a.m - 5 p.m and only saw 8 fish, 5 of them too small to even think about spearing. the first decoy we tried was a small chub colored one. we gave it about an hour and a half and nothing came in so we switched to a large red and white one and as we were lowering it down the hole a 6 lb. northern comes from nowhere and smokes the decoy. once he spit it out he was pretty startled but he was too far away/angled to get the spear to him, so we had to watch him swim away. another 4 hours go by and i decide to tie on a fire tiger decoy. again as i was lowering down the hole another 5 lb. northern comes out of nowhere and smokes it too, but the fish missed the decoy and got the braided line instead. so the decoy went one way the northern the other way and i was left sitting there looking at a $10 decoy sitting on the bottom all afternoon.

Both sound like pretty fun outings! I think it might be a bit before I get out again.

in your guys's experience when do the northerns move most? early season or late season? sunny or overcast? warm or freezing?

I don't know about other's experience, but from what I have noticed it seems to be different from lake to lake. For example the smaller lakes seem best early in the season. I have some lakes that seem better late in the season. Some spots are better for high pressure and sunny. One thing I noticed last weekend was that the increase vehicle traffic on the lake I was on seemed to have the fish moving better in the early morning before the crowds appeared. Its best to have a number of go to lakes that you can match with the conditions or time of year. That is one reason I much prefer a portable approach to spearing or any fishing for that matter.

Ya that is correct. Also, you could go to the lake on one weekend, and the next weekend is horrible. All depends, but its so much fun its crazy.

    • Stuff is getting hard to find so best load up on ammo I'd you find it.  Many have rebates going now so that helps some.   I haven't shot the new Feferal TSS shot yet but guys that have report excellent patterns and downrange energy.  Luke Don mentioned 45 yards is doable depending on your gun's pattern.  Two springs ago my dad dumped a big Tom at 54 yards, (misjudged the yardage and bird was working away) with the federal heavyweight in 6 shot with his 20 gauge.  I'm not advocating for shooting those distances, but it's a testmate to how far this ammo has come. 
    • I've been seeing them in corn fields and around home owner homes.
    • if you have gone through a set of carbides in 1000 miles you definitely need to change them now as you are getting a lot of wear 
    • Just a reminder this Seminar is tonight.
    • I did shoot the RX-1 but there was more hand vibration and a little louder. RX-3 did not have any of that . Also could just be in my head but felt smoother in the draw too.
    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
