Don't see too much talk about it. Where can I get a spear in Michigan and thoughts of a new guy going up and winging it. I see it's a 10000+ acre lake. Obviously study the lake etc. and probably need a quad. Any other random thoughts. I really wanted to make it to Backstabbers this weekend but just can't swing it.

Call Parrott’s Outpost in Onaway. If he doesn’t have one in stock he can get one for you prior to the season.

Parrotts is under new management. I’m not sure the new owners have the same connections. I’ll swing by there at lunch and see.
Good to know, thanks for the heads up.

Parrotts is now Onaway Outfitters. I am not sure either if they have Sturgeon spears there any more. The person who was making them was calling it quits, but has said that for the last 5 years. This year it may be true because of his health issues.

I’m pretty sure they cancelled it this year due to Covid.

The Shiveree was canceled last time I looked but I don't know if the DNR canceled the season too or not. I'm not sure of they are one and the same.

The Shivaree was cancelled again but not the spearing season. Brenda and Gil went to Florida, if it wasn’t for those two volunteers the Shivaree would have gone away long before anybody had heard of covid.


There is a thread on the Black Lake Sturgeon Season.
