HI all,
Looking for a new combo for the season that will be good for the smallest jigs i have.
I'm a big fan of gill pills and ratsos and the smallest size in each are in that 1/200 ounce range.
Are there any noodles out there that will load up enough to see negative bites with this small of a jig?

or spring bobber rods that will work well for this size range?

I know the super ultralight ticklestick is rated for this but most ice rods dont list a weight rating

thanks for the help!

the top 3 rods. just the drag has different colors to help you know which set up your grabbing.

Frabill Titanium Spring Bobber! My only complaint is that I wish they also made it with a green bead.

You are way off on your jig weight. Size 10 ratso is 1/100. Size 14 gill pill is also 1/100. Ive never seen a 1/200 jig, doubt a #10 hook weighs much more than that so you could just use a bare hook. I have some 1/124 jig heads and there is barely anything on them in terms of lead.

Ive never seen a spring load with a #10 ratso, a custom titanium might be the ticket
