Tip ups for crappie
« on: Feb 08, 2013, 06:56 PM »
I was wondering if anyone had tried the rubberband trick on thier tip ups for crappie.  I know guys use them for salmon and lakers where the fish tend to run and drop the bait.  Just a thought i had.

not with paper lips....best way(and funnest)is jigging them...however...anyth ing is possible..just dont see the point i guess....it would work great for locating schools tho..
i just know they will bite if i stay another hour.

It could work but Tip Ups tend to offer too much resistance for Crappies, Tip Downs work much better.

I have caught lots of crappie with tip ups never had one drop it. I use the polars they spin smoothly.

tips downs work the for me less resistance when the crappie takes the bait free spools off nicely an holds pressure when they stop running wit the bait.

  • It's not what you look at. It's what you see.

same here,no rubber bands needed.

Just use small or medium shiners. Sometimes tip up is 1 foot off the bottom others it is suspended halfway down the water column.
I don't care how tough you are. If your 3 yr old daughter tells you to blow on her Dora Macaroni and Cheese to cool it down, you do it.
