This piece fits in the hand well but I was told it was an Alaskan tip up.Perhape it's supposed to pivot on the holes across the top ????

The last two pics are a complete mystery to me. I bought a box of stuff at an auction said to be ice fishing gear. Anybody have any ideas ???

Boy, if one had to give up todays technolgy and use just the poles above, our catch rate might go down big time.

Picture #2 is a hand held jigging stick. Back in the 70's into the early 80's a similar wooden one was sold for use with swedish pimples.

Picture #3 looks to me to be classic Muskrat Whompers. Traditionally employed when the bejeezers have been scared out of you by a muskrat swimming up your Ice Hole and proceeding to run rampant around in your house. Looks like two of the three were actively employed. lol

How about original quick strike rigs for pic three. Run the line through the hole, stick in the snow and when a fish pulls the board falls over the hole the fish sets the hook on them selves.

I believe #4 is a device that runs a line under the ice to string a net used by native Americans.
