Using a Rattle Trap for a decoy

5 posts in this topic

One of my friends has had good luck using a rattle trap as a decoy. Has anyone tried this?

I have used them before. I usually try them when none of the other decoys are bringing them in. Sometimes they work, other times not. They sure do make noise though.

I have used rattle traps and have had mixed sucess I jig them and have caught pike on them and have had pike blast in and miss them several times . This past weekend I was fishin mille lacs and was jiggin them and no pike but did it ever draw in the perch and not just one or two, dozens would come in and one time about a 150 baby perch schooled in around it.

sham is right about the noise

I also have a deuy's rattle decoy called the teal teaser with rattle

I have added rattles to all of my decoys. Go and get some small worm rattles and slip them into the holes of your decoys. It worked great for my bear creek decoys-had to open the drain holes just a bit to get them slid in.

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
