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.

      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!
