When it comes to selecting the right rod for ice jig fishing, Joe Ponessa likes to base his decision off the targeted species and the size of the baits you're fishing with. One great choice for many anglers is to find a rod that allows you to effectively target both panfish and walleye, which Joe recommends something in the 25-inch range in a medium or medium-light action. This will give you versatility on the ice and allow you to be ready for anything that swims below your hole!
