Wolfram fiskas jigs
« on: Dec 21, 2017, 05:47 PM »
Hey guys,
Id like to start jigging for perch this winter and I was looking around for small jigs and I fell on Wolfram fiskas jigs. Im very interesting in buying a dozen or so of themin different color and sizes. Id like to know which size and color do you use for perch between 10 to 25 feet of water and if you tip them with anything. I want to add also that it will be used on an ultra light rod with 3lbs line maybe 2lbs depending of what I see on this forum.

To all I wish you a merry Christmas and tons of fish this winter!

Since they are small in size, do they attract and catch some of the bigger perch? When I say bigger I mean 8in+ in length.

I typically use 3, 4, and 5mm tungstens plus a variety of spoons and jigging raps.  Yes, going small can attract the larger perch - sometimes it takes small.  I usually start big and work my way down in size.

We use mostly 4,5mm and Gold glow works well with spikes. Catches a ton of perch,gills and walleye as well

Thank you very much guys for your help! I know very well that spoon and jigging raps works very well for perch but the issue is that the area I fish is full of pike and I'm worried that I'll catch pike with those.

I would also like to add something.  Above I said I will be using an ultralight rod but since nothing has been bought I want your opinion on this. Should I use a 22in ultralight rod or a 26in light action rod. In both cases I'm probably going towards St Croix avid ice rods.

I fish mainly in a shanty in less than 20' of water so the shorter UL would be my first choice for pannies using lightweight jigs, although I prefer 25". Are you planning on using a bobber of some sort? Line watching?

I rarely fish from a shanty since I usually set tip up and downs for pike and/or walleye so the length of the rod isn't a problem with me. I don't plan on using a bobber or dead sticking bait because of my tip down who are mainly set up with small minnows for perch. My goal with the jigging rod is to use jigs and small plactic bait.

I just looked around for rods and I settled on 3 different models and I would like your input on them.

1) St-Croix Avid Glass 26" Light
2) St-Croix Mojo Ice Rod 28" Ultralight
3) Fenwick Elite Tech Ice 25" Ultralight

The Fenwick Elite Tech is the only one on your list that I have experience with and it's a rod I really like - it's got some backbone and a soft enough tip in that UL action to work with lighter line and jigs.  Check Amazon for prices - last I looked the cost was pretty reasonable.

The TUCR Inferno series might interest you.

The TUCR rod looks nice but on Cabelas.com only one there is a 32" med-heavy....
If the Fenwick Ice Rod is as good as their open water rods it'll be a keeper!
