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.

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
