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.

    • How do you keep those solid whole covers from freezing over the hole?
    • The ant moat idea seems interesting.  Go to a second had store or a Goodwill type of place and see if you can find a Bundt pan.  Use that and see how things work out.  
    • Could you be a little more specific on this cocktail timing deal? Size matters! 😏  
    • I have been doing whole prime rib on a weber grill since I was 20 years old and they cost 2.99 lb at the long ago defunct Country Club Market in St. Paul. I put the coals on each side for indirect heat and add salt and pepper and garlic. For the garlic I put the fat side up and take a knife and put holes into the fat down to meat. In each hole I put a garlic clove. I don't add any pellets or wood chips for smoke. I just want to taste that beef cooked in owns fat with a few spices but go ahead and add some smoke to it if that is what you want.
    • The storm last weekend  has moved the birds into the heavy duty winter cover. We had pretty good hunting in the cattails the last couple of days. Perfect weather helped.
    • In my humblest of opinions the simpler the better for prime rib.   Take it out of the refrigerator, salt (kosher) the entire piece and let stand until it's at room temp. Stick it into your smoker/oven at 450-500 degrees until crusted (about 1 cocktail). Lower heat to 325. Have a least 3 cocktails before poking it with a thermometer. Remove once internal temp is 120. Let rest for at least 1 more cocktail Cut and serve with horseradish.
    • In the worst case, the population would have to be held at a low level for a few years, like maybe 5.      I still haven't seen much indication that prions in the dirt are an issue in actuality (as opposed to theoretically).   
    • Fire Mike Preifer now : https://www.reviewjournal.com/sports/raiders-nfl/kicking-adjustment-makes-difference-for-raiders-daniel-carlson-1546061/
    • The prions will always be in the soil, so the “clean” population will eventually contract them and we’re back to where we are now.    I love the the idea of trying to control CWD, but I don’t believe we can.   
    • I have not but it really sounds interesting. The video I watched used garlic, butter and thyme sprig when they seared it. Looked perfect when they cut it open.
