"BIG RED" ICE FISHING TIP DOWN-TIP UP
It is essential that you know when the fish is starting to show interest in your bait. The rocking motion is extremely sensitive to even the slightest fish bites.
A “must” for the avid ice fisherman that is tired of holding their fishing rod by hand and trying to guess when the fish is about to bite. By purchasing multiple Tip Down-Tip Ups makes it convenient to set up one per hole while you sit back and wait for the slightest movement of a fish bite.
This item is a newly manufactured product on the market to ensure you have a stress-free fishing experience. Made of durable steel metal that is heavy duty to withstand the most common ice fishing conditions.
Frame collapses down for convenience of transporting and traveling between your fishing destinations. When ready to use, simply unfold the frame and secure the clip on the rod handle. Place rod with clip on the frame and you are set to go.
BIG RED is a larger frame that accommodates for both larger reels and heavier line as well as all smaller reels and lighter line. Frame measures 4.5"x 12"x 10.5" when open. If a large frame is unnecessary for your needs and you prefer something smaller for most spinning reels and some smaller straight-line reels then refer to our listing "Original Blue Tip Down-Tip Up".
Each frame comes with one clip. Extra clips sold separately. If you would like additional clips please refer to our listing "Replacement Clips".
Plastic clip can snap if put under too much pressure when applying to the rod. Make sure to follow instructions by beginning at the top of the rod handle and gently open clip just enough to slide down into position. Plastic also becomes more brittle in cold temps, so make sure your clips are already placed on the rod handle before going out into cold temps.
Additional clips are sold separately. If you plan on using multiple fishing rods, additional clips are recommended so it's not necessary to remove the clip every time you switch rods. It is also nice to have extra clips on hand in case one falls down the fishing hole! Comes with a quantity of two (2) clips per pack.
We currently have two Ice Fishing Tip Down-Tip Ups. They are similar in design, but "Original Blue" is smaller, fitting most spinning reels and some smaller straight-line reels. "Big Red," by contrast, is a taller version used for both larger reels and heavier line, in addition to smaller reels and lighter line.
The frame, when unfolded sitting upright, holds itself nice and sturdy. When a fish goes for the bait at the end of the line, the rod points down into the hole while the frame stays strong. However, on the off chance a fish were to pull the frame towards the hole, our Tip Down-Tip Ups measure between 8"-10.5" when upright open. So if your hole is smaller than the frame height, you should be good to go.
You set the hook. There is no spring-like mechanism used. The steel frame holds the rod while it balances, allowing it to naturally jig in the water. When you notice some activity happening at the end of the line, quickly lift the rod and set the hook.
No. The frames are designed to balance freely on the frame; there are no spring-like settings. You need to be within reach, monitoring the rod, ready to set your hook.
