Ice Fishing in West Branch Michigan is, In my eyes slow caught a few here and there but for the most part slow.  I use a tip-up for pike with grubs or meal worms that seems to be the best for me. My dad always told me that the size of the minnow gets the size of the fish. Enjoy fighing fellea's

I'd continue using your tip-ups if I was catching 15+ jumbos.
Iwas out fishing 4 guys today who were jigging. I was the only one icing perch. By bouncing around and jigging your tip-ups you can cover more water, and lose less fish with #14-#22 trebles and 4lb test. Gotta love your jumbos! :'( :'( :'(

If you catch a perch on your tipup pull in your fish and get your jiggin rod down that hole. Perch travel in schools and by size so you may end up banging a few more out of that hole

like a previous post said if you get a jumbo on a tip up drop your rod down that hole and get a few more perch are attracted to the flash of the belly when they are hooked. Nothing better than perch for dinner.
