I have almost no expeirence ice fishing and I am planning (last minute) to go to a fishing tourny in Big Lake. If I want to catch northern Pike what do I need to purchase (keeping in mind I probably will not ice fish much so I don't want to make a big investment. I want to use sucker minnows.

If you want to go real basic just buy some tip ups. You can pick up a couple for $5-10 each.

Buy some line for the tip up and attach a swivel to the end of it, where you can attach a leader a plain hook and some weight. Slap a sucker minnow on there and drop it down the hole. Kick back and wait for the flags to fly.

Do you have an auger? If are using a hand auger be prepared for a workout, the late season ice is always fun to drill through.

The Northerns should be in there Prespawn, they'll be in
shallows 3-6ft,want a few weeds, feeding right under the
ice 1-2ft,they'll hit hard and run like hell, use a heavy
hook and braided line, fun time to catch them, Good Luck

Pike Lover,
for the cheapest way to fish for pike
thought the ice is using a tip up but
for the big lake tourney i'd recamend
is just a plain old cheap fishing rod and reel
and a glow bight red lure buck shot tiped
with a fat head minnow works
the best wink smiley being this is your
first time ice fishing and your not sure you are
going again..

i can give you a few more tips on the ice
tomorrow to I'll be helping with the
kids clinic down there..feel free to give me
a holler i might even give a few adults
a few tips.. smile smiley
