Ice Fishing Tips -Check your local regulations! > Bass

bait

(1/1)

dperch:
I have never ice fished for bass and was wondering if minnows have to be live because a pond I know of doesn't allow live bait.  I was going to use dead bait but are they not as effective as live bait? Do other bait or lures work well for largemouth? Thanks.

MRC2572:
Dead bait will work but in my experience not quite as effective. I would try jigging for them with any metal spoon.

jibbs:
i would try jigging for them as well...try usiing a silver buddy

Velcro:
If you have to use dead bait try using a wind tipup, it'll move your bait and make it look a little more lively.

Whopper Stopper:
An un-tipped Lindy Darter works good for bass.
