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.

Strike Indicator Salmo LAVSNOD 215-05. or you tube how to make your own from plastic bottles so you have the one you like the most. the pros use these.

or if you want to use what ever your favorite rod is, just add these. you can see them breath on your bait with them. these adjust to different weights and clip on/off. so these are the most versatile indicator you can buy for many different rods.

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

Problem I find with titanium is there to stiff..  I found schoolly spring bobbers..  I electrical tape mine to my rods I use a medium action I use it for a verity of fish from crappie perch to bass trout.. the scholly bobbers are the most sensitive around..  I hang them a good 3 to 4 inches out the tip of the rod..

That's what I fish with 90% of the time. The perfect combo for this is a st. Croix LSR24UL paired with the light spring bobber and a 13 fishing free fall online reel....here is 2 key points to consider....with this setup your line that u spooled up is crucial in your success if it spools off and u can see coils or the slightest bit of coils all your sensitivity is gone....bc the bite will have to take those coils out before your spring bobber shows a bite....solution use a super suple line I use seagaur invizx....other trick put that tiny jig down the hole make sure that with that amount of weight that it's deflecting the spring down....if it's not stretch the spring out a little at a time until that spring is perfectly tuned for those tiny jigs.... reason being for the spring being deflected down if the fish picks the bait up and moves up a little you'll see it no problem....same goes for downward pressure....if you don't tune the spring to bow with those little jigs you won't see some bites....video camera verified...
