Affordable pike rod
« on: Jan 10, 2019, 02:16 PM »
Hey everyone.

I have some custom ice rods that are designed for pike and I love them. But I got a group of friends and family that I have to outfit for an ice fishing trip.

I like a longer rod for pike, something in the 32”+ range. I fish these rods on a flag system mostly so won’t be doing to much jigging.

Price range is that 40-70 range.

Thanks.

Stay safe

i have a few of the HT polar golds and really like them but they dont make them in a  32+

these would probably work well for pike too.

leaves a nice portion of the money for a reel which i think is more important.

Check out the Jason Mitchell Mackinaw Series of rods from Clam. these might fit the bill for you.

Ugly Stick Dock Runner 36" M


They may come in a combo but junk the reels and put on a better reel then you're set.  Cheap at $15.

i have a 24" med action ugly stik. the original version, not the GX2. I bought it originally with the thought of going Pike fishing, but don't see that happening. It's like a meat stick. It's new. willing to sell it for $15 plus shipping (don't know what shipping costs)

Second on the Mackinaw series - I have used the 32" med-heavy for one season and it fit the bill for pike.

Agreed, but I  would go with a Zebco Dock Demon. It is an all glass blank, while the Ugly Stik Dock Runner only has a glass tip.....and I'm a Ugly Stik guy.

rdhammah-I would love to take that Ugly Stick off your hands.  I'm a big fan of the old school ones and prefer shorter rods.
