Let’s roll. I will be on the ice starting Friday-Monday. This will be year 3 since I got back in the game. Always had a hard shack out as a kid but moved on to running hounds and never looked back. I still put most my time into the hounds but early I will be on the ice. I will also spend at least 3 sits on big fish waters witch I’m getting dialed into. Last year I built 2 spears and first trip out with both I took a low 30s” fish. If I have to I will build another (it’s started just have to get motivation to finish). Carved 2 decoys this summer as well but I’m struggling with the weight as of now but the pressure to produce will give me the spark I need. Hoping to get my oldest kid a fish this year he’s been with me since I got back into it and really enjoys it so first few fish next weekend will be all him. Unless it’s big lol. If the weathers crappy I might make the gtg but if I’m driving an hr I have a hard time not going to my big fish waters. Might spear that lake and the. Sneak into the ceremony it’s not that far of a drive.

Checking in for year two of learning Saginaw bay. Speared LSC for awhile with a best at 37" hope this is the year i can break this. I plan on trying a few different inland lakes as well this year. Planning on my first sit being over new years weekend.

Like to spend the season chasing the side pot points, and swinging a single tine spear. More often than not I'm good for a low 30" class pike to contribute.

Spears, beers, and a whole lotta dunking weird stuff as a decoy.

Probably build a few spears to throw and see what sticks.

Keep it the good times rolling in the team thread boys, and good luck on your adventures this season.

Anyone got an interesting (FUNNY) idea for a decoy?
Was thinking about firing up the 3D printer, but for some reason kept on grabbing fish models.
If I can print dang near any form........then why choose a fish.
Already have Scuba Steve in my arsenal, Nemo, and a Submarine.

F-14 TomCat.........Highway to the Danger zone!?
