Custom Rods For
Jigging For Lake Trout

Jigging for Lake Trout takes a special rod, and our 47-inch long jigging rods match those in use on my boat at Flaming Gorge. They provide greater sensitivity, better visibility of the rod tip, less fatigue, and quicker hook-sets. Rods are IM-6 "progressive" graphite blanks with single foot Fuji Hardloy guides, built on a short section of custom-cut blank to get just the right combination of action, power, and sensitivity required for finesse jig fishing. Equally effective for both open-water/boat fishing as well as ice fishing. Specially made for jigging for big lakers. They're what we use! Both bait casting and spinning reels are available. Bait casters have a straight cork "trigger" grip, and spinning rods have a straight cork round grip. Reel seats are graphite screw-locking. Thread wraps are red. Blanks are a dark green. I build them one at a time,wrapping and finishing them by hand, during the winter months. Price new is $150 plus shipping. Email me for details and questions. (Do not pay before confirming order with me)
