they are not perfect, and you don't know what trips it for sure, but we have used them, just the type with the cheap watch clock in a green/camo box with the white plastic strip out the side. We (my father, sister etc. who bear hunt) would put them on the bait, with some success. We would always put the bait by a tree and tie the string on a log that we would put on the far side of the bait as the tree. we had problems with the string that came with, so we resorted to mono fishing line. they also were not water proof so there were some problems with water. we had some problems, but for how cheap they were what do you expect.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
