Tip ups, vs jaw jackers


Do you guys generally see better success using automatic hook setters or tip us for pike?

i only use tip ups for pike.  mainly because of the big live baits.  im sure the "steelie slammer" type setters would be great for dead baits and hot dogs though.

I use Jaw jackers with great success. I've been seeing a whole lot of pike picking up bait of the bottom lately, so I I let the bait fall and then leave a little bit of slack with the jaw jacker. The Pike pick it up, take a few chimps and then leave with it, and that's when the jackers hits them. Works out great.
