St. Croix Legend Ice Rod Spring Bobber Question

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the heavier spring bobbers? I am looking for something that will work with an 1/8 possibly 1/4 oz jigging spoon, any thoughts?

The heaviest (yellow tip) spring bobber should work ok for the 1/8 oz. 1/4 oz. is pushing it. I only use the spring bobber on my legends for smaller jigs.

the reason I ask is for rigging up a search lure. A 1/8oz spoon with a small ice jig dropper and would like to see the bite on the small jig

I think the pink are the heaviest (MH) and the yellow are a bit lighter (M).

I like the pink ones a lot. They work great with an 1/8 ounce jigging spoon and minnow.

Your all wrong.. grin.gif

Green is the stiffest and if I could find more of them I would buy them all they work for heavier baits and with the lighter lures you can add a split shot to get your lure back down to the action quicker.

I think the orange/red and pink are just to wimpy the yellow is ok.

Just bought a green (heavy) one today for my custom rod I bought yesterday. The guy that made it uses st. croix blanks, and the one I bought is solid carbon, very sensitive yet good backbone for walleyes.

I plan to try the spring bobber this afternoon- he uses the heavy and says it works great for 1/8 oz jigs. If you want more sensitive you can pull it out of the rubber grommet so it's longer, or push it back in so it's stiffer for heavier jigs.

So the Green spring is the new one for Jigging. I heard they were coming out with one a while back, I just couldn't find them yet. The yellow is the heaviest one I have (MH) and the Pink is (M). I'm going to have to pick up a couple Green springs, Does anyone have them Online to buy?

You can buy them online from St Croix's site.

Since we are on the same subject, I wonder if they will ever come out the a (UL) spring. The (L) orange one is perfect for many jigs until you start working size #14 and smaller jigs in the 1/64oz or even smaller. Hopefully that one is next. I'll guess blue for the tip color.

I bought mine at a local baitshop in the Falls. Used it tonight with an 1/8 glow jig, caught a 24.5, 21.5, 13, on that rod--it worked great. The fish came up fast to hit but I never felt a thing, just lifted up and the spring went down. I think it's safe to say I won't be fishing without it anymore.
