Level wind ice reel options?

Recommended Posts

I would imagine that any of the low profile baitcasters would work well on an ice rod.

The smaller round Abu Garcia reels are also a good choice, I think its the 4600 C3, C4 that you'll find on a lot of guys pike & laker rods.

The harder part is finding ice rods that are designed for baitcasting gear.

I know of two Cabelas reels, including my own, that did not work in cold temps. You probably want to look elsewhere. Whatever causes them to slip may be present in other brands, so not a bad idea to find one that you know works from someone else's experience. Mine are old, so I can't help further,

I have an Ambassadeur for fishing Lakers and I love that reel. It is real smooth and built tough. I don't recall what model number was on it, though. The rod I have it on is just a real heavy blue and orange HT rod. Works real well for me!

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
