and yes catching fish on a tip-up is quite fun
I think it's a good topic that doesn't come up all that often. As a person who tries, fails, forgets about, then gets interested in tipup fishing about every other year, this was a timely post for me.
I'm going to be taking a tipup with me this weekend. And, to try to answer the question, I'm just going to hang a 4" whole sucker on an airplane rig in about 6-8 FOW and let it soak. I had success with tipups for northern when I lived in Wisconsin back in the college days of 1975 but haven't had any success in Colorado to speak of. The closest I got was pulling up my 8" sucker to see the stomach gone. Never did get a flag to fly on that one. Waterdogs haven't produced for me either so, rather than pay the $2 apiece I just go with a sucker.
Let us know if you land one. Good luck.
