If you fish deeper than a few feet you don’t have to recheck your depth. Spool up to marker and done. I didn’t use buttons as I have a ton of the mini bobbers already. I don’t own any buttons not sewn onto something
Never used circles on a tip up but I don’t see why they wouldn’t work
I like to use line markers for two reasons:
1. As stated, after each fish/flag, you can quickly reset to the proper depth by winding up to the line marker.
2. If you come up on a flag that is tripped but not running, the line marker gives you a visual to know if it has taken out any line. If I see the line marker sill at my spool guide, I typically know it was a wind flag or a bump and drop.
Dirk - seriously on the #12 trebles? That is WAY smaller than I use.
Yep. 8’s stick out like a sore thumb in our clear water. We’ve used circle hooks, and slow poke jigs as well.
#10 gamatzu finesse black, 30# fluorocarbon crimped, 12” long. On a busy day, change out frequently when they get nicked up. Hook ups are high, and works in all water
Man I can’t believe how small of trebles guys are running. If your catching 22” hammer handles sure, but fish over 32” you’re really gonna have to baby that thing. I’m not horsing fish by any means but my #6’s are in pretty shoddy shape sometimes after icing a mid 30’s fish.
Clear on the marker thing.
I mostly target Pike in 8ft and under. Been going with the bait 1-3 ft under the ice or just above the weeds. I've just never seen anyone use them before.
Bait size/availability main reason I guess.
Most days it’s larger shiners or smaller suckers. I move up to big circles late season /dead bait.
This pike my wife caught on the big muddy with a #10, so they do work on the bigger fish.
That is a monster pike!
