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.

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.
