Tip-up ?

New to Minnesota and was reading over the rules of the one hook deal or two lines in the winter. I understand one hook here in MN so what does everyone here use on their tip-ups. I'm use to a treble hook on a big sucker for northerns in MI. Thanks for the help and good luck to all.

You need at least a bead or a spinner or something above the treble. Lots of discussion on it in the regular Ice Fishing forum, and they know more than me, but if you put a single bead above your treble you should be fine.

Thanks Box. Seems kind of a cheap wat around it but makes sense.

Take Box's advice and find the tipup/treble hook thread on the ice fishing forum page. (I found it but haven't figured out how to post a link to it for you.) Lots of discussion about that very item. Some new confusing laws or definitions apparently have gone into effect and it has even the Conservation Officers confused. Sounds like some special rules are being drafted to address the confusion. Read the thread and decide how much you want to risk it. The bead/blade thing may not be legal at the moment, even though historically it has been.

I would consult with the CO that is in charge of the area you are going to fish. Quick stricks rigs were legal last year , but as of now it is being discussed at the state level. Yes, ones with a bead and blade were legal before but for this year it could get you ticketed. Sounds like next year they may be fine again.

Well after reading all the info on Harvey's link I am even more confussed. How is the average person to know this if it isn't in the printed rules and if it isn't printed how can there be any enforcement either way. As a military policeman for twelve years and enforcing both road rules and game rules on military posts, a judge can not enforce the tickets without a written rule and the ticket would be thrown out. I guess we will see when the new booklet comes out.

Thanks for all the advice and help. Dave

if you want to use a treble hook it needs to be attached to a jig under a tip up something like a swedish pimple
