LaDredge Outdoors is no newcomer to the fishing world. For two years 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!!
