When you guy are fishing in a rental on one of the big lakes. Do you also set up tip-ups? What are the rules as to how far away can or can't you have the tip-ups? Thank you

I never have but am going to this year. I think it was 200ft you can put a tip up out.

If you get the nice thermal ones (frabil, with foam) and put a tip up light on it you would be ok. just check it every hour or two to open the hole, and be sure to pack snow around the tip up.

I do as Chadwick said. Use the thermal tipup and buy a light that clips to it. Pops on when the flag goes up.

I always bring the termal tip ups when I go to the resorts on the big lakes.

i will not go to any lake without my tipups! U can easly move them around and try different presentations. I catch flak from some buddys for swearing on my tipy, but since I concsitantly land fish on my tipy, the flak I get is well worth it! not to mention large tipy fish are a blast!

I agree with everyone about setting out tip ups, especially if you are fishing in a resort house. You can cover more ground with a tip up out. The thermal ones with a light on the flag stick work great at night. I don't rent resort houses too often but I still always put out a tip up for the reasons listed above. Plus it gives me a reason to get up and on my feet once every thirty minutes. And the best reason for using a tip up, it is a great rush to see a flag up and then see the flag holder spinning as the fish is taking out line while you are walking/running to the tip up. Lots o fun.

    • It the particular case of the poor integration of immigrants in Sweden and the EU in general, that information is publicly available and has been for some time, so probably isn't something the Intelligence folks are making a point of.   Likewise, the mainstream media doesn't seem to be making much of it.      On the other hand, we have the reports in the media that the Intelligence folks have allegedly stopped telling Trump stuff.   What are they allegedly not telling him?   Are they deliberately trying to make him fail?          
    • This has probably been beaten to death on here but....after the recent trip to Winnipeg and driving on rough ice all weekend, I'm reconsidering the auger mount on my ATV.  I have one of the Kolpin ones right now that is 2 thinner pieces of metal that stand up off the front rack.  The only way to hold the auger in is with bungees and the metal is thin and wears on the auger at the contact points.   I'm thinking I could work some 2x6's or something into a decent mount for fairly cheap.     Anybody have pics of a homemade one?   Or anybody recommend the Digger mount?  
    • So how did you get the livewell overflow out? We've had some problems with ours & have toyed with the idea of replacing it. We don't really want to tear all the floor up though. 
    •   Yeah., just not the same as Frankie. Try typing in all CAP'S!
    • Not last year but the year before that we had one that followed us all through deer season.  He would hop up on our knee while we were sitting there, and the little bastard would grab my glove and try to run off with it.  He was almost dinner many nights.
    • Saw this topic and the link to Rock Auto. I ordered up left and right headlight assembly's for my 04 Suburban. They fit right in and even included bulbs. $58.00 to the door delivered for the pair. Cannot beat the price and quality looks fine- better than the old dump I replaced.  Now do I replace the daytime running lens assembly's and fog lamps? Ordered on Thursday and delivered on Saturday 2 days early.
    • They have the 20% off sale(some exclusions) going on this week at Gander. Just need the code from the page, though Rogers just uses one at the counter, so I didn't need it. They got more fishing stuff out now, so I loaded up on some Missle Destroyers!
    • I got the TYC Fog light installed last week. Worked good and looks better than the busted out one! I would of done it months ago if I knew it was that cheap and easy to do.
    •     Oh stop it. How was I to know? You'll just get Dell all fluffed up again and we'll turn THIS into another sillytown.
    • There are a few places to stay that are not too far from the lake.  Hamilton House in Winnipeg Beach is good, a lot of guys stay at the Casino on the East side,  there is a new hotel in Selkirk that is pretty nice and has lots of rooms and breakfast.     Nobody plows roads.  We always watch the weather and snow depth before we go.  We have been lucky to only have to bring ATVs with wheels up there.  Eventually we will have to deal with some deep snow though and bring sleds or tracks up.     There are a few guides that run around on the lake.  Lee Nolden and Blackwater Cats are the 2 I know of.  From what I hear they are pretty accomadating and have all the necessary gear.
