Spearing season is for January and February. I bought my first spear last year and it was a blast. I got all those big perch in Anchor Bay that would not bite. The spearing can make a big difference from bringing home very little perch to getting a big pile of them. The only problem is you need clear water and you need to cut a big hole in the ice. If the water is stained or chocolate milk you will not be able to spear. Just be aware that if you buy a spear it will become very addicting and will not want to use a pole again.

How can you tell a pike from a musky from a hole on the surface?

No spearing of muskies in LSC, its right in the rules booklet.

Not all that hard to indentify. Identify then throw the spear.

No I didn't attend any food drives last year, We are organizing one this year and plan on attending this year. And not a pro by any means. I just enjoy anything outdoors. If I am a pro at anything it would be being on the marvin hunting and fishing team. And that is a pro status I don't like.

Just wondering how do you make the big hole for spearing? chainsaw? sidenote was talking to a guy out at metro the other day about people not marking there holes, i am going to use colored flags from homedepot and am asking everyone on this sit to do the same. and if you come across a chunck that dont need flagged anymore please pull the flags so we dont leave them for soft water.

well in my opinion you should always be paying attention to where you are going on the ice. looking for others holes as you walk, i was taught that you should always walk with your spud in hand checking the ice as you go, SAFETY FIRST, as far as opening holes for spearing you can use a chain saw, I auger 3 holes in a row and then open them up with my spud to make them the size of my holes in my shanty
