Best Ice Fishing Rod

Best Ice Fishing Rod

The Best Ice Fishing Rod depends on how you fish and what you are fishing for. If you do your fishing in some sort of shelter, be that a hut or tent then you want a shorter ice fishing rod since space is limited. If you sit out on the ice then you can fish a longer rod though 36 inches seems to be a good length.

Most of the time a medium action rod is what you need. However if you fish large or heavy ice fishing lures then you will need a heaver action rod – probably a medium heavy rod.

A good rule of thumb is, use a light rod for perch and panfish using 2 to 4 lb. test line, use a medium action one for trout, walleye, whitefish, etc. with 6 to 10 lb. test line.
