I usually place them out 50-75% of the time I fish. I do believe in them.

If you are setting up and planning to stick it out in a spot for a while, they can and do help hold fish under you. If you are more runnin and gunnin after the perch, they might not help as much. I have used them with great results on the pond, won't go up there without them.

That is a great idea. Do you ever use them on tip ups?

Dances with Walleye

I've only been playing with them this year... But for Tip Ups and for the rattle reels late at night I don't use them (I pulled them last weekend when I went to bed.) Simply because if a fish starts running, as they often do with a Tip up or especially a rattle reel late at night...

They could far too easily tangle up in the line connecting the weeds...

I had enough problems with the 28"er I pulled up last monday at 4:00 am snarling my rattle reel lines... I'd hate to think what would have happened if he would have snarled the weeds as well!

I have 8 holes in my house and I put them in the center 2 and it only takes a few moments and the small perch will move in. They seem to keep bait fish around - last weekend I would put the cam down an there was nothing and a couple of minutes later there would be small perch.

The small perch think that reel weeds are pretty cool.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!

      Nice pics.  Can't wait to get out this weekend and give it a try.
