According to Sathre, a modified quick-strike rig fished below a tip-up is extremely deadly for late-ice pike. This rig looks like an upside-down Y, beginning with a barrel swivel. From the swivel, he rigs two leaders, ranging from 4 to 12 inches long. The leaders can be titanium, steel, or 50- to 60-pound-test fluorocarbon. He finishes the rig with a blade, bead, and 1/0 treble hook.
