Hello all! I have a few different spears, but unfortinatly I allowed my uncle to use my shanty and he threw the spear at a nice fish with out the rope attatched. He missed the fish but the spears burried in 3ft of muck, 12ft down. I spear a lake that doesnt have a size limit on pike, and also holds a few 35-40+lb muskie. i have an older homemade spear with long skinny tines with double barbs per tine, but wont throw that at a big fish thinking it wont hold. I just recently made a new spear for bigger fish but feel its too big for muskie. I used 3/4" steel for the handle, with a weight, and 3/8 tines. it was all i had. its 12lbs and just seems beefy. I will be throwing it if one of the 3 fish im looking for comes in. I like using homemade equipment but feel this one might be overkill, what do you think?
