Reel Weeds and Weed’Ez on the pond?

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone tried either of these products on Mille lacs? I would think that they would work for perch in a flat situation but what about walleyes? And does different bottom types (rocks, sand, mud) have effect if you use them or not? I am looking into buying one of these systems and wondering if they would help on the pond. Any experiences?

Yes! Yes! No. and Yes!

They are the real deal, but do yourself a favor and by the reel weeds from ladredge. They work just about everywhere. If you would like to see more info, check out the ice fishing forums and look for posts about the reel weeds, a quick search should turn up a few threads.

I tried them (4 strands) Friday on Shaws- 1 23" 'eye.

Used them Saturday- nothing until I took them out of the holes. Fishing was slow and I did have some smaller perch hang around for a while when they were in the water. Once I removed them I had more good "marks" on the Vexy.

Don't know what to think of them yet. The fishing was pretty tough. Can't wait for better weather to give them another try.

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
