Yeah I was more looking to see if people were using them and having any luck because of them? I am going to get a set of 5 and plan to bring them up to URL.

Tried them last weekend and i guess i really am indifferent at this point. Perch seemed to like them and hung around, but didn't see an eye with them down. I don't think that they hurt, but the fact that they were a big help is too early to tell.

I used two of them last winter in Feb.on URL, and I thought they helped me. I caught more crappies than the other 5 guys in the shack. However, I asked Jonny P. this same question. He said that it depends. The Structure on a String holds crappies, but it can also be a hiding place for northerns to possibly ambush crappies. So, that may scare away crappies from your holes. I'm bringing my Reel Weeds when I come up the first of March. I'm going to try them again. Good Luck!

I got a 5 pack for Christmas and I have used them about 10 -15 times. I am not sure what I think of them. If you find fish they seem to help them stick around but then last weekend when we used them in a lake with lots of pike, the Crappies where around for a while then notheing, I think there might be something to the puike using them as ambush spots. I am going up next weekend to URL and my buddy has a camera so I am interested in seeing what really happens.

I tried them twice a couple of years ago. Put them outside the shack in a pattern that I hoped would funnel them toward the house. Didn't work but maybe it was because I was not in a fishy area. The next morning we had to chisel them out (minus 20) and ended up chopping one of the cords off. I have never tried them in the house as I am worried about a gator or big walley tangling them when they make a run. As for now they are in storage under the bunk in the fish house.
