I'm wondering, has anyone has ever tried using a spreader such as this for ice fishing lakers? My idea is to have a floating bait suspended about 4" above the terminal end. I was thinking a GULP type artificial fish with a hook hanging out of the tail, or maybe just half a herring with a corkie for suspension. I thought about putting a small weight at the "L" part of the spreader to keep the works on the bottom and for pounding the bottom as well
My only concern is bringing the spreader up through the ice. Any thoughts?
