Spearing Pike
« on: Feb 24, 2012, 12:21 AM »
I was on another site and some guys showed some pike that they had speared. Man,one was 35 lbs. :woot: Another guy showed 3 pike in his hole looking over his decoy fish. Looks like hunting and fishing at once. I wounder if thats something we might do here in Maine with some law change? Seems like some lakes could withstand the pressure fine. What do some of you think? :tipup:

definitely an adrenaline thing: waiting with nothing, ...... then waiting for a big one,..... then waiting for it to get in a position to spear, .......then waiting to get your spear into position to make the LUNGE!!!!!

                     :woot: I GOT IT!!!..................................aw, :%$#!: man, It got off, and I'm soaked!! :'( :'(
 
    :unsure: :whistle:

I would think where it is an invasive species you could use dynamite.

It's been common practice here in MN forever. Go look in the spearing section, it has a huge following in the upper Midwest. It's a real challenge, not shooting fish in a barrel.
