Anybody ever use these up on the pond and what did you think?

I have used them this year. I noticed the perch love them but remember the lake is invested with small perch.

Ya, that's what i've found too. Just wondered if you had any big perch or eyes come in and hang around?

I used them for the first time with a buddy on the deep water breaks. I am convinced they attract the perch. We had a camera down and could see that the perch more 'came in waves', and didn't hold for too long. The bigger fish were seldom seen, however 4 were kept. Some of the perch were digging in the sand, I have never seen this before. We found that a smaller jig tipped with waxies that was bouncing on bottom, causing the silt to float up slightly triggered them to bite. Most fish were vertical looking strait down at our baits and as soon as you drop that thing on bottom, gulp, and set the hook.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
