I'm new to ice fishing (this year will be my first time) and I was wondering how you catch pike and muskie. I am planning on using pike minnows (suckers) with my regular ice fishing rod. Will I need a wire leader? If so, what size?
Posted By Windburned on 15 Dec 2010 08:47 PM If you're using tip-ups BIG bait, suckers/creek chubs, 20lb. flouro leader tipped with a titanium leader off of that. I actually put beads and blades on my leaders, extra flash and vibration. Works for me.40+" Musky landed last christmas eve
