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.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..
