Baitcaster ice rod ?
« on: Mar 07, 2018, 01:54 PM »
For those of you who may use a bait caster for ice fishing. I'm looking for info on brand and source for the rods you use. For many ice fishing applications I prefer a bait caster, but it's difficult to find ice rods designed for their use.
Thanks for any insight you have to offer.

I use two different rods both are a bit heavy I used for lake trout, a Jason Mitchell mackinaw rod and a 48" ugly stick. I used heavy spoons, tubes and jigging raps with these rods.

St Croix makes decent ones, useful for many applications.

Some rods can just simply be mounted with a baicasting reel.  If you want something specific, it's gonna be custom made.  Do it yourself or have a rod builder make it.

For more information read my MN nice journal

Sportsman direct sells a spiral wrapped (acid wrapped) rod that is made for baitcasters. It doesn’t have a reel seat, you would have to use tape or something else.
