Learn More About All Things Beaver Dam Tip-Up

In the late 1930s, three ice fishermen in the Beaver Dam area - Fred Crinion, Albert "Tuck" Kachelski and George Beers - began assembling their own tip-ups in a basement and selling them for beer money. In 2008, with eight employees working inside a 4,160-square-foot, one-story building on the east side of Beaver Dam, Arctic Fisherman still made each Beaver Dam Tip-Up by hand.

For five decades, the Original Rail Tip-up has stood apart, an American-made icon of ice fishing tip ups. Experience the legacy, put more fish on the ice, and see why this original remains #1. 

The all-new Beaver Dam tip-up with an integrated light system built in for best performance and ease-of-use. Simply push the ON button, position the flag and it will automatically alert with upright flag and super bright LED light when triggered by the bite.

This is the tip-up that started it all 60 years ago. Beaver Dam Tip-ups have been designed, tested and proven to meet the demands of ice fishermen all over the world. The Original Beaver Dam Tip-up is all hand made and assembled one at a time. Each tip-up is freezeproof, windproof and foolproof, allowing you to have a better time on the ice.
