OK, OK, calm down Bean....I was just being a [email protected]$$...Thought I'd let you know that I just ordered three of their Slammer tip-ups with rods and a few other accessories. Thought I'd take advantage of their discount offer to IS members before the Mar. 15th deadline...Been wanting some of them anyway and I'm glad to see they support IS as well...WK ;D

Gonna try tip ups for Lakers for the first time. Got the basics down but a little confused on something. Watched a video where they said (no illustration) to use an egg sinker below the hook/bait to lessen the resistance when the fish takes the bait. How is this possible?  :-\

The egg sinker sits on the bottom of the lake. When the fish grabs the bait and pulls line, the sinker stays in the same spot and the line simply slides through the sinker. That is until you set the hook. I donít fish this way but lots of others do.

Ok, call me slow but if the the sinker is on the bottom, below the bait, what prevents the line from being pulled through the sinker completely? I mean, something has to keep it from coming off the line even when your lowering the line down the hole. I guess I need a visual.  ;D

The line runs through the middle of the egg sinker. It canít come off. It is the same type of rig bait fishermen use in open water. The sinker slides freely up and down the line so the fish doesnít feel it. Iíll see if I can find a photo of the set up.

Here is a link to a photo that shows the rig.

Ahhh...now it makes sense. However, in it's non-submerged state, the sinker is above the hook, which is where I was confused. This is actually how I, and probably most, set up their tip up rigs. I just usually pinned mine. Thanks PT...thought I was going nuts.  :blink: :roflmao:
