I enjoy the tip up because I like to fish all the other species too. allows you to set it in Pike territory and move elsewhere. Plus when the flag goes up with a giant shiner on the other end, you know its something serious!Interesting about the bait caster. I have never tried one while ice fishing. All good information. I might look at picking up a tip up. Never know unless you try.
Correct, but you get so much ice on the line... which transfers to ice in the guides... I wish I could use braid... I tried Nano, but it has too much memory.You don't get memory with braid, that is one of its best attributes.
