Tip up question

Recommended Posts

I haven't gone ice fishing in years, but plan on doing some this year. It's been so long I can't remember the best ways to set them up for walleye and northern. I have braided nylon line and need to know what to put on the end that for walleye and northern.

After your tip up line or braid tie on a good swivel. Next tie whatever # test line you want, usually about 4 ft. is all ya need. For eyes I go 10# Vanish. Then tie on whatever you want to use to put your bait on. I like a #2 glow hook with a beed above it or a small spinner blade. If Im using big suckers or shiners for eyes I use a #4 or #2 treble.
For Pike I go tip up line tie a thin flexible leader in the 40# area with whatever hook you see fit. Usually a treble or quick strike rig wich I prefer but I dont do pike much.
Hope this helps.

Here's what I do.

For my pike tip up I have 30lb braided tip up line tied to a wire leader. I'll maybe use a quick strike rig or plain ol hook. Add some weight on there to.

For my walter tip up I have the same black braided tip line then I tie that onto a swivel then tie on a 4' flourocarbon leader then have a hook on that. Yup add some weight on there to.

Sometimes I mix it up and put on a jig or something. Most of the time bare hook and minner does the trick. Hope that helps.
