Minnesota Darkhouse Spearing
The Minnesota winter tradition of spearing northern pike is as old as the pine trees in the state. A large 4 ft x 6 ft hole is first cut in the ice and then a heated darkhouse is placed over it. Live baits and artificial decoys are then suspended below the hole to attract pike within spearing distance. The low light levels of the darkhouse allow spear anglers to see northern pike below them. The trick is to try and spear the fish before it sees you. The art of darkhouse spearing is still practiced in Brainerd, Minnesota. Give us a call and one of our professional Brainerd Lakes spearing guides will assist you in experiencing this ancient method of fishing.

MN Darkhouse Spearing Season
Minnesota’s spearing season starts in late November and ends the last Sunday in February. Early season ice conditions are a key factor in planning your trip. The Brainerd Lakes Area usually achieves “good” ice around mid December. Please call in advance to make sure the ice thickness is favorable.
