Using Tip-Ups for Lake Trout

Recommended Posts

Would like to get different opinions regarding using tip-ups for lake trout. I normally don't use them but plan on using one this weekend in Ontario.

What's the best set-up? Tip with cisco? Just below the ice? Type of hook? Line? What's your tip-up preference? Igloo? Etc.?

Thanks in advance.......GC

Greg....
Get in touch with WallEYES, he was using tip-ups last year on Crow when we were there. Be sure to bring your big capacity spools, some of his tip-ups were set in 80ft. of water.

Hi Greg,

Look in the Rainy Lake thread for more input on your question. Hopefully my bro or others familiar with Ontario will have some ideas.

Greg, don't use the cheezy plastic t/u's. Get the heavier and longer wooden ones. I've seen those plastic polars explode with a laker on em. And disappear...

I've never used tip-ups for trout but I've caught them deadsticking. Whenever I fish stocked trout through the ice I always jig in one hole and deadstick in another. A lot of times the larger rainbows came in on the deadstick. Move the rod tip a little every once in a while and thats all you need.

When I fished lakers in Canada we only caught fish on jigging presentations. We had a few wind tip-ups out but only caught pike and walleye. We couldn't get the action that the lakers wanted using the tip-ups. We set tip-ups just off rock breaks and then we jigged the deeper basins. Caught most of our lakers in 40-60 feet and most of the pike and walleye in 20-50 feet.

Where are you going to be fishing? I was fishing Whitefish out on LOW.

Good Fishin, Matt.

    • It won’t take 5 years to change the signs, IMO.  2 tops and my money is on 1 more.  I did just get offered a club member deal on a “vintage” Cabela’s cap when I tied placing my order.  The thoughts that went through my head... 🙄   Yes, tried to place my order; use up the last of my points and move on.  Oops, system error, we can’t access your points at this time.  I can see em there, just can’t touch em.  OK, I’ll call back another time. 😤   Still can’t spend money there when I try...
    • I didn't think there ever was such a thing as too many shells! Just saying.
    • yeah, that lakeville FF has been going downhill.  Still, if I need some tackle or something, I'm more likely to go there than across the street.
    • I'm surprised by how much they have merged things together, like a single flyer for sales and whatnot.   I thought the usual way to do this was to maintain two separate brands, to provide the illusion of competition, even though it's really just one place.     I could give a rat's arse what they want to call it, just give me the best prices and put what I want on the shelf and I'll throw my money there if you call it Cabela's or Bass Pro.
    • Seen  the guy again yesterday & asked him if he was finding many & he replied that he thought they were just about done down here already.
    • I bet you're right about Cabelas. As for Fleet Farm, I've been really disappointed in the Lakeville location lately. Over the past year their prices have gone up, they are often out of the item I'm looking for, and they usually are understaffed at the checkout lines.  Perhaps it's just that one store, but I kinda doubt it. Hope they turn it around because I used to love FF and I'm starting to head to other stores now.
    • anybody miss Dozier or Escobar? lol   been a fun ride so far. Its going to be hard to sustain this pace and keep winning like this but I hope they can keep it up.
    • Ok.... So I have to admit that this is something that I have been somewhat fascinated with, but no absolutely nothing about. Here are my main questions... Is there a "Shroom Finding for Dummies" book or something similar that a pure novice myself can pick up? I have read a lot of posts on here that talk about "my spots".... Do morels typical come back the same place every year, or is it just because of the general climate conditions in that "spot" Follow on question.... If they come back the same exact spot, what sort of care is needed when harvesting? Cleaning and prepping.... what are the steps? I assume that it is different for each specific variety of mushroom? What sort of "season" are we looking at? Obviously based on facebook sales posts, the morels are ready now... how long does it last and what about the other varieties? Exactly how dangerous is it for me if I "think" it is one variety and ends up being harmful? Truthfully, this is one of the main items that has stopped me from taking a trek out into the woods. Thanks in advance for letting a newbie in on the trade secrets
    • They sure had the long ball working again yesterday with 8 HR's. They hit .326, had 37 extra base hits, & outscored the opponents 67-27 on the road trip.👍
    • I'm pumped that they are doing so well.  I actually enjoy watching the games and have already been to a game at the ballpark.  I might try to go to a few more.
