Ice Jig Setup (Rod/Reel/Line) - Brad Novak

Mon, January 31, 2022

When Brad Novak hits the ice targeting panfish and crappie, a jig is one of his top choices. When it comes to rod selection, an ultra-light or light action rod with a soft tip is a perfect option when paired with a 3 or 4-pound fluorocarbon ice line. When out hole-hopping, Brad likes a rod in the 27-inch range to allow easier fishability when standing or moving from hole to hole, whereas when fishing inside a shelter, a shorter 23 to 25-inch rod is a perfect choice.
