LaDredge Reel Weeds

Need Structure-Make some

LaDredge Outdoors has designed a great product to include in your fishing arsenal. Reel Weeds will attract and hold fish for you in the area you are fishing, whether it be S.O.S. Extreme 6 ft weeds or the S.O.S. 4 ft. weeds they both get the job done. Another great product that is a mainstay in my equipment is the Camera Cable Structure which will and does help with reducing the fish being spooked around your camera and cable.

Many times when I am on a mission to chase down those pannies for a meal I will place numerous weeds in a V and fish in the middle,

Or I will make a line or square and again fish the middle or edge of the patterns.

I have watched these fish as they swim towards the weeds and hold to it. Areas that I like to put in the structure are by a bigger flat or a rock pile that has no other structure. I will also place them in a route to their feeding area along a break line.

When I am done fishing, these weeds come out of the frozen water with ease and store on their holders very well and without a tangled mess.

One cannot forget the Camera Cable Structure. I have used it on my camera cable without any problems and wouldn’t use my camera without it. The fish seem much more relaxed as they think the cable is a weed line.

If you are looking for a new addition to your fishing arsenal and would like to hold more fish by you, give LaDredges Reel Weeds and Camera Cable Structure a try.

Reel Weeds Equals Real Fish

LaDredge Outdoors is no newcomer to the fishing world. For several years now they have led the attack on artificial underwater structure. LaDredge Outdoors offers a wide-variety of products available to the ice angler. But, these products are not only something anglers have grown to like and use on a regular basis… the fish are really growing a liking to them as well!!

Structure on a String has truly developed into Reel Weeds, and I believe that’s a very fitting name for something that indeed seems so real. Fish become excited by the presence of Reel Weeds and it draws them in like kids hearing the ice cream truck. Reel Weeds definitely present a natural and comfortable surrounding for the fish to relate to.

Reel Weeds come in a variety of packages and models, but rest assured, you’re getting the same Reel Weed advantage and the quality is uniform across the board…

The Weed Bed is a 5-pack system designed to give the angler a series of weeds in order to create their own underwater habitat. Each weed is 4-feet tall and you have 40 feet of cable allowing you to fish a large range of depths. Each Reel Weed also comes with its own storage system and an ice free float. Structure doesn’t have to wait for the outside elements to heat up; you can use your Reel Weeds all winter long. The Weed Bed gives you a total of 20 feet of weeds and it’s an excellent start to your underwater advantage!!

Looking to create a taller weed bed? No problem, the Quad Pack EXTREME offers a 4-pack system where each weed is 6-feet tall. Now you can add that extra couple of feet giving the fish exactly what they want. 6-foot tall green weeds under the ice are sometimes impossible to find during certain times of the season, but now you have a life-like decoy that gives the fish a new underwater haven they can now call home. With 24-feet of structure, you have yourself an underwater world that takes fishing to the EXTREME!!

Are the larger weed beds too much? Or are you looking to add to an already existing weed bed? Then the 2-pack system might be more suitable for you. The 2-pack system has the 4-foot weeds just like the Weed Bed, but only in a 2-pack. Now you can add a weed stalk here and there where you typically don’t see weeds. The 2-pack is an excellent gift and is great for the run-and-gun style of ice angler!!

You like to use an underwater camera? Then the Camera Cable Structure would be a great fit for your arsenal. The Camera Cable Structure attaches to the cord of your underwater camera and turns it into a Reel Weed of its own. Now you can hide your camera and really ambush the fish!! The Camera Cable Structure fits any underwater camera and will give you an up-close and personal look at just how life-like the Reel Weeds appear to the fish!!

And just when you thought you’ve seen it all, LaDredge Outdoors throws Clip on Structure into the mix. Clip on Structure allows the angler to add Reel Weeds to anything they desire. Add it to a dock post, add it to a string of your own, add it to an anchor rope… add it to just about anything!! With more than 32-inches of Reel Weeds to play with, the Clip on Structure allows you to modify your own underwater structure!!

Until now, LaDredge Outdoors has only offered tools allowing the angler to add structure into the underwater world, but now you can actually catch fish with your structure with the introduction of the Weed Line. The Weed Line is a system that incorporates a hook into the structure your drop below the ice. Now you can draw the fish in with the tantalizing weed attractors and then seal the deal with bait positioned only inches below. Now you have yourself some underwater structure that fights back!!

Structure is so important under the ice and having the advantage of creating your own portable structure can really increase your success. LaDredge Outdoors has continued to bring us new and innovative products that allow ice anglers to become more productive. Whether you’re creating your own underwater Weed Bed, adding a couple more feet with the Quad Pack EXTREME, adding structure to your underwater camera, or teasing fish into falling for the Weed Line, you’ll soon find out that LaDredge Outdoors has without a doubt written more success stories out on the ice!!

I've been using the Real Weeds and know they work. That video shows the crappies are coming right in. From my experience they'll stick around longer too.

The picture above shows a couple patterns to set out the weed bed. When setting up on a break I like starting out in a line coming from the deep water then a half circle around the my shelter. Sort of like making a landing zone with duck decoys.

If I'm after eyes I'll have a tip-up on that deeper edge and jig in the Otter.

    • 44 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY. One thing you always can count on here at Lake Iwanttobethere is that after a lousy day there will be a nice day. Warmer, party cloudy skies and it is warm where I sit at my desk here in the den. The brown dog is at my feet, his paws on my right foot keeping tabs on me. Yesterday was a rain day and normally I look forward to rain days as they give me time to catch up on indoor projects. Rain days in the dead of winter however do nothing more then create work. Ground is frozen so all we have is runoff which here in the cabin means a wet floor in the basement. Overnight the water freezes and now we quickly go through the ice melt trying to get rid of the ice so it is safe to walk on the sidewalks.   Ranger Rick is reporting that his trail system at Samantha Lake is a mess. The rain and warm weather has eaten away at his trails. The short cut across Samantha Lake is not recommend to use as their is water on the ice and getting on and off the lake is unsafe at best. No fishermen on the lake yesterday but then again it rained more then a half an inch. Big hockey game on tonight the Wild against the Black Hawks. We will see if putting the seventy inch TV in will draw a beer drinking crowd. I would love to be there but have been under the weather the past few days and will be watching from home.   I have gotten a few e-mail’s asking about Lake Iwanttobethere and it is a good time to be a little more clear about the Lake. The wife has never had her named mentioned in the eleven years I have been writing about the lake. She told me she did not want anyone to know her name so she is always refereed to as "The Wife" of my four kids only the boys names have been used as they own business in town, the daughters have never had their names mentioned except the one who paints is sometimes spoken about as at Christmas she paints store front windows. None of the eight grand kids names have been mentioned but they are often refereed to a granddaughter number two or grandson number three. The two ten year olds are spoken about often and are refereed to as "The Tenners"   Almost every one in town is based on someone I know. A few of them have passed on but I still write about them, kind of my tribute to them. I could still be writing about my old dogs Bud and Barney as they left me with a ton of stories untold but I shared my loss with you over them and have moved on. Now I leave it up to you how much the Lodge and Resort are. One of you called the Resort a bar and it is far more then that. The Lodge is a place for members to hang their hats. There are lockers in the basement for their stuff and a chair in the Main Room to sit and be left alone. Not everyone drinks, for example everyday Tom sits at the end of the bar with a cup of coffee every morning and does his crossword puzzle. I never mention him much because that is just what he does. The FELLOWS on the other hand seem to be doing something all the time that you may find interesting. The Resort is a place for the guys to get away from the Lodge if that makes any sense.   The Resort has become like our Lake Iwanttobethere old guys home. Marv, Elmer, DOC and Vic are the core and none of them are married and they are doing just fine thank you. Chuck, Hammering Hank, Skinny and I are the next wave, the in betweeners so to speak. Married but still looking for a hideaway. Where is Lake Iwanttobethere? I’ll save that for another day.
    • Season has been over for awhile but now I have a couple of Grouse who just strut in my back yard taunting me. Duncan has tried to put the fear into them but no matter how quick he is they are up in the trees before he can get halfway across the yard. He does come back with that stupid lab look on his face so I guess everyone is enjoying themselves here late in the winter. I hope to hear them drumming this spring.
    • cool!!  and thanks again for the info!!  i look forward to getting it.
    •  Used to, then he lost it to Vince and Nick Cage in a Segway race on Tropicana.
    • Your going to like it. Definitely not "the best", but still definitely worth the money. Mine came slight damaged... one of the flanges where the leg attaches to the barrel was bent slightly. It was easily fixed but I decided to contact RK about it... They said to send them pictures, and within 2 days I had a phone call offering either a full exchange or $100 credit to my card. I gladly took the credit. I fired it up around Xmas time in 15-20 degree weather. I was worried how it would do in the cold. It handled it like a champ and only took about 15 min longer to smoke an entire pork loin.
