      I don't jig for Northern pike. I just put a lively minnow on a hook and a couple weights to keep him down and let the tip-up do the work. That's just me though. I save the jigging for everything else. Good luck!

        I don't jig either, but I do use tip-ups and what I found helpful was some live smelt. One lucky smelt sacrificed himself for a 36" Northern for me.

          I don't jig either, but I saw a guy use the head of a blue gill he just caught suspended under a wooden bobber and caught an 18 inch pike! He said that was his tactic that he used every time and I saw it work! Hope this helps!

            I don't jig I use tip-ups for northerns. I use frozen smelt or herring that have been thawed on the counter for 3 days. You want them stinky yet still firm enough to stay on the hook. I will set one 1ft off the bottem or top of the weeds and the other just below the ice in shallow water 5ft or less. On both of these I use a quick strike rig.
