Hi everyone,
Taking our first trip up to nip and I was wondering if my rigs will be good for a successful trip. I usually use my medium heavy with 10# for walleye on BOQ. Was wondering if this is to aggressive of a set up for nip. I have my perch ultra lights Iím going to bring. Just wondering how aggressive the walleye are or if I can just leave the MH at home.
Bringing the usual buckshots and spoons. Also a few split shot rigs.
Thanks guys

The walleye usually bite pretty light up there but I have never caught a nice quality walleye up there so hard to say how hard they may hit. Such a wide variety of fish in Nipissing you just never know what might hit, a guy landed a 50"+ musky this year through the ice so I would say if you have room bring the MH with you, I use a ML and hope I get a bit of the best of both out of it, sensitive enough and hopefully strong enough for those surprise catches.

Good luck to you and your crew, will watch for your report.

You might want to make sure you have some pink in your tacklebox before heading up, seems to be a hot color up there the last few years....jigheads, spoons. Stinger hooks will help with some of those light biters as well.

Iíd deff get a pink buckshot lure if you donít have one. I have 3 Just Incase something happens. Tail hooking minnows on deadstick works pretty decent too. Idk if youíre familiar with laws, so just make sure you only have two lines in the water and only keep eyes bigger than 18.1 inches. Tight lines and goodluck
