Tip Up or Beeper?


Fish_Off

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever tried a tip up or Beeper for crappies? I'm going up in few weeks with a buddy, but I only have two holes in my shack so I wanted to set up a tip up or sensor for crappies. Has anyone had success with this and if so with what kind of a set up? I looked at the strike sensors, but I thought I'd see what others thought first. I guess what I'm looking for is something that would allow me to fish a hole thats outside my shack so I'd need sound or a visual to notify me of a bite... I'm worried that tip ups aren't sensitive enough

the bite has been so light the only way you could make a tip up work was if were you right on top of a school and they were hungry. your best bet is to watch your electronics closely cuz if youre not right on top of a school they we'll come in at all different depths and you'll have to povoke them wink.gif to bite. never caught one on a bobber either this year, so hang on to your rod grin.gif and be ready to camly intice those slabs to bite. good luck wish i could be there next weekend for one more attempt!!!!!!!!!!!!

A friend of mine gave me a beeper and it worked great for crappies, no bobber, set on lightest setting, and hit the fish immediatly.

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?

      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
