What do you call them?
« on: Mar 14, 2021, 07:35 AM »
I grew up in Connecticut and everyone calls them tilts.
Went to college in Maine and everyone calls them traps.
Currently living in Vermont and everyone calls them tip ups.

Im just generally curious what you call your "tip ups"?

Grew up in upstate NY, with a camp on the VT shore of Lake Champlain -- always called them tip-ups (of course fishing on southern Champlain since the mid 60's, in those days we only used the old style wooden tip-up with the slide cross bar that actually did 'tip up' when a fish hit, and then we'd all yell tip uuppp and start running!)!!

Here in mass I mostly hear traps/tip ups and only rarely do I hear them called tilts.

I'll have to start calling them "my fishing gizmos" to keep it simple.
That also includes my jigging rods.
