If there are sleds and ATV riding around or too many people I mark them with 1" square wood with reflective tape at the top, measurements on the marker for Bass, Walleye and Pike. It's amazing how many guys buzz your tip-ups even when marked.

PICK UP A PIECE OF 1" PVC PIPE AND CUT IT DOWN TO 12 TO 18 INCH CHUNKS AND SPRAY PAINT THEM. BLUE OR GREEN ARE WHAT I USE SHOWS UP NICELY AGAINST THE SNOW. FOR NIGHT FISHING PICK UP SOME SOLAR LANDSCAPE LIGHTS AND PLACE THEM BY EACH TIP UP. WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN LIGHT COMES ON NOW YOU AND EVERYONE COMING OFF THE LAKE KNOW WHERE YOUR TIP UPS ARE

I started using the orange cones like Bigblue has pictured. I tried putting reflective tape on the top, but it eventually came off during cold, plus when stacking them.
Any ideas on what would stick better on that flexible plastic?
I really like them. They stack nice and they fit in my tipup bag. Just need them to stand out better and have some reflective on them to find them in the dark.

I use PVC pipes as well with orange duct tape and reflective tape. They are very visible day and night from any direction. So visible that I had a guy on a snowmobile race over and run over my tip up. When asked WTF, he said that he saw the orange against the snow and wanted to see what it was.
