I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

I just finished my second darkhouse spear. I also forged a new set of tines for my heavy duty spear. I ended up welding in the wedge because it was giving me some trouble but it works great now.

Nice looking bit of gear, but isn't something like that called a Trident. Did you actually catch the fish using that WOW, my grandfather used to do a bit of spear fishing underwater when he was younger.

By the way what sort of fish are those.

a trident would have three tines, and the fish are pike they get spear though the ice from a darkhouse, which lets you see below.

Here is a darkhouse spear I just finished testing I still have to clean up the welds and I think I'm going to get this one powder coated, because this ones all mine. B) The last pic is of a little one that wouldn't leave my decoy alone. :ph34r:

Gator gar's scales are so hard you pretty much have to shoot them with a bow equipped with a fishing rig.  I don't know if any hand thrown spear would penetrate those scales.  Maybe on a young gator gar.  Great looking spear, Jason.  I really like the 7 prong design.  That'd be a WONDERFUL frog gig if the prongs were a little smaller diameter.  I see you're in MI...you'll have a ball hitting pike and similar fish.
