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.

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
