Jerry Bean's Jig Tips for Crappie Using Kalin's Grubs

The tube jig has caught more smallmouth bass on the Great Lakes than any other type of lure – perhaps more than all other lure categories combined!

Ice Fishing Rods and Combos

Uncle Josh carries dependable ice fishing rods and combos to maximize your fishing experience. We have 3 types of Beaver Dam rods:

The glass noodle rod is very lightweight, and has a great taper which gives away even the lightest bites. It is great if the fish are biting soft, causing you to miss the bites. This rod doesn’t need a spring bobber attached to it.

The carbon fiber rod has a fast taper, and is great for aggressively biting fish. It won’t wear you out after fishing for aggressive fish all day.

The titanium tip stick is a very versatile and unique rod. This rod features a built-in titanium wire. If fish are biting light, you can pull the spring bobber out to detect every bite. If the fish are biting more aggressively, you can push the spring bobber back in and it will stay out of the way. You won’t have to worry about the spring bobber bending during storage.

Beaver Dam Tip Ups

Beaver Dam Tip Ups are great for catching walleye, northern pike and other large game fish on the ice. Tip ups allow you to cover more area than ever before. Fish multiple spots on the ice to maximize your chances of catching the fish of a lifetime.

Uncle Josh carries two types of Beaver Dam Tip Ups: rail and round style. The rail style tip ups are the classic design, and come in a variety of colors and patterns, so you can easily recognize your fishing spot. Round style tip-ups are made with the same sturdy materials as the rail style, but are manufactured with a compact design.

Ice Fishing Bait

Our ice fishing baits are the most reliable you can find on the market today. Baits from Uncle Josh come in natural shapes and textures to mimic real prey the fish are seeking. This bait is also scented to attract hungry fish. Our ice fishing baits include leeches, shiners, shrimp, wax worms and meal worms.

These baits will help you catch more pan fish like bluegills, crappies and perch on the ice.

Ice Fishing Accessories, Parts and Apparel

Uncle Josh has everything you need to have a successful fishing trip and keep you warm on the ice. We have replacement parts if you need to repair your tip up including flag assemblies, line, springs, and spools. Our ice fishing accessories range from hole covers and knee pads to our popular Beaver Stations for organizing tip ups and other fishing equipment.
