Legal for tip ups?

Recommended Posts

In another post I read that you are not allowed to attach a treble hook directly to your tip up line, and I do remember reading this somewhere in the regs (I think).

I bought some treble hooks that came pre-attached to a small steeel leader. At the end of the leader, opposite of the hook, there is a small yellow blade about that is probably less than 1/2" long.

Are these legal to use? Can I attach 2 of these to the same spot at the end of my tip up line (kind of like a quick strike rig)?

Thanks for replys.

quick strike rigs. i use em. i think technically since they have the blade on them they are considered a lure, and treble hooks are legal on a lure. a way to get around it.

Last weekend when we caught a lot of pike on tip ups, we fished about 10-15 foot from shore. We used about a 4-6 in chub on a red trebble poked into the side of the chub and fished it about a foot off of the bottom in 3-4 foot of water. We just simply run normal 30 lb braided tipup line with a 30lb black steel leader with a red trebble. My personal favorite setup was this on a wooden tipup with the fabrill artic siern on it. That way when you are fishing in a portable and you get a bite the thing lights up like a christmas tree and sounds like an abulance. This way you never have to wonder how long the flag was tripped.

I would make sure you are not fishing with just a plain treble. You need to have a blade attached to be legal. It also has to be I believe within 3 inches of the treble.

Harvey Lee is right about the blade being at least 3 inches from the hook. I just asked the DNR up on red lake about it two days ago.

Is it legal to jig with another pole while having a setup like this on your tipup?

The way I see it, if this is truly a "lure" than this would be considered ONE line. Meaning it would be legal to fish with another line???

hope this makes sense.

    • Fun, looks like you had a great day. 🙂  Getting the itch but we have a few more weeks to wait here in Minnesota! 😔  Welcome to the forums.
    • Is it generally a good idea to use two treble hooks on a tip up setup?
    • Had some great luck getting into some fat Late fall trout. Hope you enjoy.   Late Fall Trout
    • vtx,   Thanks for the suggestion.
    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
    • That's the way most falls go. I was able to get out and put a gobbler down this fall. Went out just for a bird since I knew where they had been going in the morning. Got to the woods just after fly down and worked my way to the area and heard them talking a bit. Gave out a few yelps and had them running to me.
      Most years I never get a shot only have taken a handful in the fall. I was in a woods that I was not worried about ruining for deer.
