What are Tip-Ups?
In addition to Bob House rentals, some of the most frequent questions we get about ice fishing in Wolfeboro surrounds the use of tip-ups. A tip-up is a piece of equipment that is used to suspend bait at a specific depth. An auger is used to drill a hole in the desired location, and then the lure is dropped through the hole to attract the fish. The tip-up detects when a fish strikes the line so the person can catch the fish. Some fishing tournaments allow the use of tip-ups, while others do not. However, if you are just doing recreational ice fishing, there shouldn’t be a problem.
Some of the types of tip-ups available at the NH Hole in the Wall include:
- Original Tip-Ups
- Ice Eagle Tip-Ups
- Eagle Claw Tip- Ups
- Electronic Polar Tip-Ups
- Parallel Tip-Ups
- Grand Master Wood Tip-Ups
Ice Fishing Sleds
One of the best multi-purpose tools that you could get is a basic sled. A sled can be used as part of your Wolfeboro ice fishing supplies to carry all of your gear. It is not just for ice fishing in Wolfeboro, but also for transportation all sorts of equipment and supplies, including firewood, feed, deer, traps, decoys, and so much more. You can get one of our sleds with an optional hitch that you can also use with snowmobiles or ATVs. The sleds that are available at the NH Hole in the Wall provide a quick connection without clips or pins. The specially contoured hull allows east pulling by hand with a tow rope provided.
Another must-have tool is the auger. It is used to punch a hole through the ice to create the opportunity to fish. If you don’t have an auger, you’re probably not going to go fishing. You can get a couple of options for ice augers where you buy live bait in New Hampshire at the NH Hole in the Wall. Many of the tools that built for use with ice fishing in Wolfeboro today are designed to make the effort of punching holes in the ice a lot easier. There’s no use in being completely tired out before you even get a line in the water. There are several different types of augers to choose from, depending on your needs and where you will be fishing. At the NH Hole in the Wall, you can decide between our ion electric ice augers, which can drill up to a thousand inches per charge; and the high compression propane ice auger, which provides a lightweight solution for extra power out on the frozen lake.
