Tip-Ups

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone here ever caught a crappie on a tip up? If so what kind of bait did you have on the tip up?

i have caught crappies before. I used a fat head and a smaller hook. I tried to get it up off of bottom because a crappie will come up further then a sunnie and I didn't want to spend the day fighting the sunfish.

My Bro-in-law has said he has done it as well. Not TOO much different than a bobber on a rattle reel, really -- I would guess that they would have to be aggressive and you would have to get to the tip-up quickly.

Good question.

They are such light biters most of the time that I wouldn't recommend it as a crappie set up but I've caught a few on tip ups before.

Try tip-downs if that is the type of fishing you want to do.
