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.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
