yes it works the only problem i had was rigging up some where to hang a decoy in the middle of the hole. They work great for checking out new spots on a new lake

i just bought a new fish trap scout for spearing, its plenty black insde. just got a piece on dark carpet for the floor and cut out the hole for water opening and its all ready to go. hopefully they'll be a touch of snow to help cover. im headed up to cass lake area in a few days to try it out. i used velcro and a zip tie to hold the decoy reel and it comes out in the middle of the hole while hanging from support rod in this model house. should work real good, easy to move, and quick. ill let ya know in a week or so when i get back how it worked. I did buy screws to hold it down overnight however. it only weighs 47 pounds !! im more worried about that then anything else....

I have also done it before, Just make sure you find a lake that doesnt have really dirty water. That will make it a lot easier for you in that style of house. CM is right you just need to find a way to rig your decoy but that isnt that hard to rig something up.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
