lawdog

Question

I've been thinking about trying to buy one of these for the cabin. Anybody have one? What results have you had with them?

Thanks for any input.

My parents and in-laws both use them and they seem to work great. They sell some expensive attractant that goes along with it but I wouldn't waste your money, the CO2 released from the unit seems to attract just as many.

My brother has one at the cabin, one at his home on the river and one at my mom and sisters day care. They all rate them #1. The one at my brothers river home really gets a work out and he then takes the dead ones to the lake and scatters them off the end of the dock for the sunnies. They make different sizes, so figure out how much area you want to cover and buy appropriately. I'm told it only kills the females, they supposedly are the only ones that bite. I don't have much problem down here, so I haven't invested in one yet.

My next door neighbor has one and they work by drawing the bugs in. My opinion is that if you do not want to draw in what you are trying to get rid of. You are better off using a product to repels them than one that draws them in or better off if your neighbor buys one and draws them into his yard. I would invest the money in bat houses myself.

We have the Pro model at the lake and a smaller unit at home. We bought the pro because everytime the power went out on the small one, it shut down.

We are on our second Pro model and it needs repairs. We are on our second smaller unit and it is still working. Both were replaced under warranty. Their Tech support was a great help when we first bought the units, but now all I hear from them is "Have you heard about our upgrade?" The Pro model has never worked properly after we sent it in, of course now that the warranty has expired, it is our problem.

In general, I think they help to reduce the mosquito problem, but do not eliminate it. We live and play where the mosquitos can be BAD. Don't expect the lake cabin to be mosquito free.

I will let you know how my next round goes with their customer service/tech support.

Cheap route: Get a fan, a bug net & some Dry ice(CO2). Will work just as good as the magnet. Proven by Metro Mosquito Control District.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?

      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
