Jason Mitchell Elite Series Ice Rods

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used any of these rods? How are they? They're priced fair, if they're worth it I may pick up a few.

I have a couple of his 24" spring bobber rods and some open water sticks and each of them are phenomenal. I wouldn't hesitate with the purchase.

I haven't used them, but as a rodbuilder I have inspected them and they are very well constructed. And the guys that I know that have them say they fish really nice, especially for the money.

They are fantastic rods. I have had great luck with the meat stick and I like the spring bobber rods. They don't ice up like other designs.

I don't know if they're made in the US but I know when I call for service (I broke the tip on one of my rods) I called their shop in North Dakota and talked to Jason himself. Great guy and great service. I've got some ideas on one of the spiral wrap laker rods for this winter. I like the lake trout and big pike on a jigging rod.

I too can testify to calling with questions and speaking to Jason himself! Great service and like TeamOtter and Powerstroke I have the Meat Stick and Spring Bobber rod. I also have a slip bobber rod for open water fishing from Jason Mitchell.

I have three of them I bought last year, and love them all.

My favorite Jason Mitchell rod is the 30" walleye. Great backbone and I like for jigging spoons primarily.

The 28" walleye is a great choice too for a more sensitive touch on walleyes.

And my 24" panfish is a great all around panfish rod.

Mine have been great rods, and for a reasonable price it can't be beat!

I have ran the meat sticks, spring bobber rod, Mackinaw Laker rod and all worked fine. Great rods for the price.

I use the 28" Walleye, Perch, and spring bobber rod.

I love the fast tip, yet strong backbone of the walleye and perch rods.

For the money, the best ice rods I've used. I was so impressed I bought a couple more this year. I have a few Jason Mitchell open water rods that are awesome also.

Customer service????? I dare you to call with a problem and not hang up the phone happy. Last time I called with a question I talked to Jason Mitchell himself.

I have used them for a couple seasons.

The spring bobber rod is great for pannies.

The Perch rod I have used for perch and eyes.

Th 28" eye rod has also been a good one.

The Meatstick could also be used for a deadstick or a panfish rod as the tip is very sensitive. One must be fairly careful with this rod as the tip is sensitive but thin.

The Mackinaw. A great rod for those lakers or bigger northerns. I have a Abu baitcaster on mine and love it.

I guess you can tell I am more than happy with my Mitchell rods and the performance they have given me.

Watch for Jason's new line of rods with reels coming soon.

I picked up a few this year, I havent used them yet, but they sure look and feel like a nice quality rod. I will be ordering more, as I am trying to replace some of my older walmart specials, and you cant beat the price for the quality on the Jason Mitchell rods!

Me and my JM spring bobber rod spent a lot of time together last winter

The meatstick does not have a spring bobber. It is a rod that is designed progressively heavier form the tip to the handle. The tip is extremely sensitive and then gets a little stiffer as you move back to the handle.

Spring bobber rods have a spring bobber built in to the rod tip.

The Meatstick has a very forgiving tip, what one would classify as a deadstick rod if you will. You can use it as such and it works great, but it also works great for dropper rigs and for crappie fishing when you dont want to use a spring bobber.

This rod is very delicate though and you need to watch the tip so it does not break. The sensitivity is great though and I have used it on many species, including landing a 26 inch walleye on it last season. It does have backbone to land the big ones too.

    • Actually ZachD Leech does like this and nice job on the meat. 😎   Leech was just ribbing a few guys waving their big penis grills around and they got all chard about it.   Some of the best Jerk BBQ in the world comes out of a garbage can grill!  So it's not what you got or how big it is. It's what you can do with it.  😉   Keep posting whatcha make. 🙂        
    • Now I just have to pick up the sear box Haha forget leach 😀   Maybe he will approve since I got my SG for 340 bucks
    • Going camping finally for the first time this season this weekend so I rolled a breakfast fatty to take along. I plan to smoke it on my $50 over-priced pellet smoker that Leech doesn't approve of for some reason. I'll try to remember to take some pics.....    
    • If you ever have a hard time controlling temps with that controller you can always switch it out with a Savannah Stoker. https://www.savannahstoker.com/collections/frontpage/products/savannah-stoker-pellet-grill-control-system
    • LOL, you probably have more money into grills and smokers than I do.....
    • Just picked up a camp chef SG the other week pretty stoked about it  
    • I bought a boat before this season the guy I bought it from never transferred it in his name and registration was set to expire.  I had all the registration cards and what not I simply just made my own bill of sale from the "original" owner and scribble his name the best I could from his registration card. The trailer title was easy because the old owner filled out the seller info already and the guy I bought it from never filled out the buyer so I just had to put my info in.   I wasn't about to go track down the original guy when he lived 2 hours away from me. What is the worst that could happen
    • You will probably need that many to make sure you have one that works 😁. The last grill I bought was a top of the line charbroil with the side burner yadda yadda. Nearly $600.  Lasted barely two years with half the burners no longer working right and finally the grates were a rusted mess and it was replaced by a pellet grill. 
    • It's the same form whether the boat is titled or just registered. How long is the boat? 16' or longer or if there was a loan on it when new it would be titled. The form is just the starting point, since Homeland Security took an interest in boat ownership transfers several years ago it is not an easy process.
