Tip Downs

Discussion in 'Wisconsin Ice Fishing' started by roger23, Dec 1, 2007.

  1. Steve ,they work like a tip up.but were more sensitive ,we would balance them to what ever size bait we used,when a fish would hit, it would tip down. if pike fishing we would use one with a clicker bait casting reel on them ,they would tip down when they took the bait and if they ran with it the reel would click.we used them in the 50 's before all these fancy tip ups came out.and we could make them in shop class in school
