Custom Jigs and Spins....

Recommended Posts

I would like to let everyone know about the changes in this years Custom Jigs Winter line-up.

This year there will be a line of panfish jigging rods, these rods have a great spring action and will be killer on the days when the fish are biting light. We've also added a spring bobber for you ultra finessers!

There are also a new line of your old favorites, the precious metal series. Gold or Nickel plated Rat Finkee's, Ratso's, Ant's, and my favorite, Shrimpos.

I can see it working in shallow water, and sight fishing, but the rods about 12 inches long. Atleast they wont be as expensive as the bust sticks.

Looks like a interesting finess rod. It's kind of funny but for several years I didn't even know what a Ratso or Ratfinkee were but come to find out that they have been my goto small lure for a very long time. I just bought them off the counter in a "Ma and Pa" shop. They had no labels. I thought it was my secret wink.gif

Yep, those Ratso's and Shrimpo's are very productive for panfish. Custom Jigs and Spins make a nice line of ice fishing tackle for panfish.

Breuer,
I bet that rod will work great on the "sight" bite for those bull gills. I bet those rods get a work out this winter.

My thoughts exactly!! They will be the sight fishing miracle, teamed up with a pink and white ant!

There are some very good deals in there for a lot of ice fishing nuclear ants, jigs, glow, spoons, swimming lures.

Save a bunch of $$$$$$$ this year.

    • A good bottle of bourbon or case of beer might make a difference.....
    • Great feedback.  I guess I will go with the single stage.  Just wish I had a solution for keeping the plow driver from pushing our entire culdesac's snow onto my lawn.
    • I have a Gen1 Helix 5 and love it on the ice, but also use it on my kayak. If I were to do it over again I would have got the 7" or bigger. Its not so much an issue on the ice but DI/SI is hard  to fully utilize on a 5" screen.
    • I always use 6lb mono for jigging rods and And 8lb mono on deadsticks. No leaders for me I’ve debated it but it doesn’t really seem to make a difference if you have one or not. 
    • My thinking is the grease would make up for the gap, but wasn't sure if it'll still have too much play. Yet, don't want it too tight where it gets stuck.
    • I think the tube is DOM 1/2" thick. Was afraid 1/4" too thin and cannot find any other tube that would fit another solid rod inside. Don't want to get something I have to get machined $$$... At least with arm I can pull out and have another made if not good. Not sure how to make the grooves with hand tools?
    • I live in the burbs  on a cul-de-sac and the plow always leaves a huge pile at the end of my driveway. I bought a single stage Toro, and while I don't have a 2-stage to compare it against, I would definitely buy a single stage again. It's plenty powerful enough to handle the deepest, heaviest snow that accumulates on the driveway. When it comes to the pile at the end of the driveway, you just have to work your way though it by backing out and pushing into it again. Of course, if you're out of town or something and the pile at the end of the driveway freezes you might need to get out a shovel. But for most snowfalls I can clean the driveway in a matter of minutes - you almost have to run behind the thing to keep up with it.
    • Not a fan of leaders, far fewer bites with them on.   I typically run 4 or 6 lb test.  I do run 8 lb in water less than 8-10 ft.  I do this because thr fight is usually off to the sides of the hole, and the line contacts the ice edge at sharper angles.    
    • Just ordered the 16 piece jig kit yesterday. I am excited to get them and get out on the ice as soon as it is safe!
    • Hey,   What lb test line should I be using for Walleyes?  I've been using 4 lb but that seems a little light and I don't want to lose the big one, but don't want to get too heavy either.  Also, what's your input on using a leader?  I haven't but just wondering if I am missing something.
