Winter apparel is important for angling, but the main thing is a rod. Therefore, we advise you to explore our wide range of ice fishing rods.
For those who are not very keen on ice fishing, angler’s equipment in winter looks very simple. However, it’s not true. An ice rod should be short, lightweight, flexible, and frost-resistant. The handle is chosen from the point of convenience and strength. The most appreciated are neoprene handles. Plastic is cheaper and more fragile.
The specifics of angling in the cold season determine the special requirements for rods. The best ice fishing rods should be durable with a flexible whip. They’re made of modern materials such as carbon fiber. Winter anglers usually have more than one rod, because it is possible to use several items at once.
Types of Ice Rods
If you want to purchase a suitable ice fishing rod, you will need to pay attention to the size and type of fish. For small fish, it is best to use a compact one, which is equipped with a built-in reel, handle, and a soft whip. If you want to catch big fish, you will need heavy ice fishing rods with a locking mechanism.
- A rod without a reel consists of a handle into which a whip is inserted. These models are short and lightweight. They’re suitable for fishing with a float.
- There are rods where the handle and the reel are combined. Modern versions of such models have a handle that is made of non-slip and non-absorbent materials.
- The classic rod is considered universal and is used for all types of winter angling. These models are often equipped with legs for fixing on ice. The rod itself can be solid and composite. The handles usually do not absorb moisture, keep warm well, and do not slip.
- Mini spinning rods for ice angling are gaining more and more popularity. They are usually used for catching large predatory fish
