Tip-up ?

7 posts in this topic

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

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
