Hey all I'm new to the forum. I made a bet with a friend that I could spear a fish with all natural materials. I don't think it will be that hard and I don't really have a time frame of when I have to do it. I'm planning on some time in the summer and practicing a lot before that. The only constraints are it has to be made out of natural material and I can use any tools; I have from sun rise to sunset to make everything and get a fish.
I looked on YouTube and stuff and found a decent way to make a 4 prong spear. I made a couple testers tonight and they were decent but I couldn't really keep a good point on them. I looked a little online and really only found fire hardening which I don't think I'll have much time for. Any tips with keeping a nice point would be appreciated.
I think the best place for me to do this is a creek by my house that has creek chubs up to 10" and a couple carp or something similar. I don't see the bigger carp or whatever very much and haven't seen them since the summer. I think those will be the easiest but not sure if I can find them. Should I get a container or worms and dump them in the creek so the fish all bunch up by them? It's a pretty high dollar bet, really sure why I agreed to this but a deals a deal.
