Newbie at jigging!!!! pike?
« on: Jan 18, 2006, 04:35 PM »
Hello, Ive been ice fishing for about 7-8 years, and I am only 15, so Ive grown up with it. Ive grown up using the tip-ups that my great-grandfather built, but recently I have gotten new ones. Anyways, Ive never jigged before. I would love to try jiggin. Ive seen many shows in it. Ive got a few questions
-For Perch, is it worth jiggin for perch without electronics. I dont have any. Should I look into them?
-I would love to jig for pike. Nothing like bringing in a pike on rod and reel. I need ALL information on what to do, use, how, where, when.... ANYTHING WILL HELP when jigging. I know all the basics for tip-ups, but know nearly nothing about jigging

Thanks guys.

FORGOT! Ive got a jigging pole, It seems pretty stiff, like its for walleyes or pike.
Its a HT Ice Blues 24" Medium with a MC-II spin-cast looking reel. Ive got normal ice fishing line on here that I would use for a tipup. Ive got glow in the dark beads on it.

Most of you probably just cringed. Well, How would you guys use this.

Thanks, Spencer

you definitely dont need electroincs to catch perch but the do help you catch more. I have caught plenty without them . for perch i would use a jig tipped either with a fathead, spikes or waxies . I would purchase a ultralight rod combo for perch / gills with 2-4 lb test mono . The rod you have will work great for pike . A Swedish pimple or any kind of spoon or some jigs with plastics will work just try different things and tip your lure with a piece of good sized minnow or a live minnow . as for the line for pike I would personal go with braided line with no wire leader but thats up to you . hope this helps .
